The action involves multiple direct actions by the Town Board of the Town of Babylon, including the adoption of an Urban Renewal Plan for downtown Wyandanch (i.e. the project area), and the adoption of a Nomination under the State of New York's Brownfield Opportunity Area (BOA) Program. The proposed project will include key recommendations for the project area in terms of land use, zoning, community facilities, infrastructure and utilities, transportation, and environmental remediation. Implementation strategies, including property acquisition, are also proposed. The project is located in the hamlet of Wyandanch, north-central Town of Babylon, western Suffolk County, Long Island, New York. The approximately 105 acre project area largely comprises the downtown area of Wyandanch Hamlet extending approximately 300 feet east and west of Straight Path from North 9th Street on the north to Garrison Avenue on the south, and several lots along Long Island Avenue roughly stretching from Elk Street on the east to 22nd Street on the west.
