Lindenhurst-based developer Mitchell Giannini told concerned Copiague residents that he’s trying to secure more parking options for a 16-unit apartment building being erected along Montauk Highway, Newsday reported. Many locals at a town planning board meeting last week expressed worry that the project will exacerbate traffic issues in the area. Gianni already paid for a traffic study that found there would be little local impact, but some residents at the meeting want him to do another study during summer months to better reflect the higher traffic volume at that time of year. Gianni owns at least two other apartment complexes in Copiague, a hamlet that is part of the Town of Babylon. Giannini tore down a vacant two-story building when he bought the half-acre site where he plans to build his Gail Grace complex. The planning board expects to vote on the project during its Feb. 25 meeting. [Newsday]
