This community will affect the level of service on Jericho Turnpike.
This is false. This community will likely be a mix of active adults and young families. We have commissioned a traffic study to have experts research the impacts as part of our zoning process and the public will have an opportunity to review the study and to comment during that time, but we expect it to show no material negative increase in traffic on Jericho Turnpike nor any surrounding streets. We have found this to be true in all of our communities and will make videos available to you showing real peak traffic patterns. In addition, you may observe the frequency of vehicles entering and exiting our existing communities.
This is false. We are proposing an entirely for-sale condominium community. All housing will be market rate housing other than an affordable component required by the Town of Huntington.
There will be no rental housing from the Sponsor. After a home is sold by the Sponsor, a homeowner may be able to rent their home subject to the rules, regulations and limitations set forth by the homeowner’s association and the condominium declaration.
This community will be senior (55+) housing.
This is false. We are proposing a non-age-restricted condominium community. The community will be available to residents of all ages and will provide opportunities for seniors and young households to remain in Elwood.
This community will include a retail or commercial component.
This is false. The proposed community is comprised solely of “for-sale” residences. The application and proposed zoning do not call for or permit any retail or commercial uses.
This community will negatively impact Berkeley Jackson Park.
This is false. The proposed community is set back from the boundary lines of Berkeley Jackson Park and no construction activities will occur on the park property.
This community will create light pollution.
This is false. The proposed community will be “dark-sky compliant” in full compliance with Town of Huntington Code and applicable building regulations. This means, among other things, outdoor light fixtures will be shielded, will point downward and will be no brighter than necessary.
