After Councilwoman Jane Bonner announced early Friday that the Rocky Point Drive-In site , Brookhaven Town later announced a victory in its appeal to keep big-box stores off the site as well.
A case that has been going on for almost 10 years, according to Councilwoman Bonner, the decision was made by the Supreme Court Appellate Division Wednesday that will ensure the site will not be developed as a big-box store.
"It’s a big victory for Rocky Point," Bonner said. "I've been working hard all week to to get no multi-family in the council district at all once the list of sites came out [a few days ago]. This council district wont support multi-family housing."
With regards to the Carman's River plan itself, Bonner said they need to "go back to the drawing table."
Bonner, along with Town Supervisor Mark Lesko, will hold a press conference to announce the victory on March 13, 11 a.m at the Crossroads Plaza East Shopping Center adjacent to the Drive-In property.
