A plan to build more than 300 villas and town homes in Huntington has been withdrawn, but the developer will submit a new proposal, Newsday reported Thursday.
Country Pointe Elwood, on 55 acres at Jericho Turnpike and Manor Road in Huntington, was first proposed for residents 55 and over, but, developer Stephen Dubb told Newsday that the next plan would include 20 percent workforce housing.
The development would be in the Elwood school district.
Andrew Kaplan, who has campaigned against developments on the site, referring to the news of the withdrawal and new plan, posted “Head fake alert!!!” on Facebook.
The developer, however, wrote, “Country Pointe Elwood will allow a greater number of families and individuals to remain in Elwood, to right-size within the community or to return home to the town they have grown up in. We believe the next generation of Long Island should be encouraged and have the opportunity to remain on Long Island.”
