A planned Amazon distribution center in Syosset got the go-ahead from state environmental officials, despite  some local opposition.

The Department of Environmental Conservation and the Department of Health signed off on the $6.7 million environmental remediation plan for the Cerro Wire site, according to Newsday.

The 39-acre property has been vacant for decades, and was previously home to heavy manufacturing. Amazon plans to build the 200,000-square-foot warehouse there.

Some locals have argued that a mixed-use development would be better for the site. The Syossett Central School District, which has two schools nearby, opposes the plan over fears construction will kick up pollutants.

Amazon is building or leasing logistics warehouses across Long Island, including a 422,000-square-foot facility in Woodmere and a 91,000-square-foot facility at Westhampton’s Francis S. Gabreski Airport.
