The action involves an application, also known as "Villadom", for the rezoning of 49.28 acres of land from R-40 Residence District and C-6 General Business District to C-5 Planned Shopping Center District in order to build a commercial development with 486,380 square feet of gross floor area. The main building will contain a variety of uses such as retail (180,680 square feet), office (129,800 square feet), fitness center (90,000 square feet), supermarket (42,500 square feet), and a new public library. There are also five smaller buildings at the front of the property, with four of them provided with potential drive-through lanes. The site plan shows 1,929 parking spaces, of which 373 would be underground. A new traffic signal would be provided at a central site entrance, and the existing intersection of Jericho Turnpike and Old Country Road and its traffic signal would be redesigned. A significant portion of the property is wooded and covered by steep slopes. The property is adjacent to the 101 acre Berkeley Jackson County Park and an orchard covering approximately 50 acres. The application also requests an amendment to the Horizons 2020 Comprehensive Plan to recommend the future land use of the property as "commercial". This would place the land into the Major Commercial Corridor/Mixed Use and Minor Commercial/Mixed Use Activity Center classifications because of its location on Jericho Turnpike. The project is located on the northeast corner of Jericho Turnpike and Manor Road in Elwood, Town of Huntington, New York.
