A lawsuit challenging the development of townhouses at the Indian Hills Golf Course in Fort Salonga has been rejected by two court rulings, the newspaper Long Island Business News reported on Thursday.
Acting State Supreme Court Justice Joseph Farneti ruled against the group Fort Salonga Property Owners Association and others.
The lawsuit against the Huntington Zoning Board of Appeals had objected to the role of an “unqualified alternate” member of ZBA in the vote that allowed the project to go forward. But Farneti found that the vote by the alternate member was “lawful and in compliance with town code.”
The action against the Planning Board over whether it had held a “duly noticed public hearing” on the over-55 housing came “long after the Planning Board’s decision-making process had concluded and the time to commence any legal challenge had expired,” LIBN reporter David Winzelberg wrote of the judge’s decision.
