The zoning that is being sought from the town board would change the current single-family zoning (LRPD) to condominium/multi-family zoning (CA) for the Crocus Lane site.
The proposed 46-unit housing development would be located on an empty parcel of land located alongside the Long Island Motor Parkway in Levittown, which closed in 1938. The housing site would also include 117 street parking spaces, but the developers need a variance as the zoning code requires 133 spaces.
According to the plans presented by attorney William Cohn, the 46-unit estate will stand at 27.5 feet and offer one and two bedroom condominiums for less than $300,000.
The project has been met with fierce opposition from a number of Levittown residents, including members of the Levittown Property Owner's Association (LPOA). Critics have cited a potential increase in traffic as a concern, as well as the desire to keep the land preserved.
