The local committee meet for the first time in May. The state approved Huntington for a $10 million grant to develop the Station’s downtown, defined approximately as the area along New York Avenue just south of the LIRR station to 11th Street. The map could change slightly, and the area for revitalization could, for example, extend to Huntington Commons, also known as the Big H center just north of the railroad station.
