Touro hearing postponed due to social distancing

Posted

The Touro Health Sciences School facility in Bay Shore is subject to a Town of Islip Planning Board hearing once social gathering restrictions are lifted at the state and town levels. The board has recommended a change of zone here from Business District to Downtown Development.

“Planning Board meetings, like all other municipal decision-making bodies, are cancelled until the Governor’s public gatherings/social distancing executive order is no longer in effect,” a town spokesperson said.

An agenda item was approved by the town council at its March 10 meeting, (which was open to the public with those attending asked to sit 6 feet apart, and residents were encouraged to attend the meeting via a live stream available on the town’s YouTube channel, Altice Channel 18, or Verizon Channel 1982) that allowed the board to serve as the lead agency environmental quality review of the parcel. The approved agenda item reads as follows:

“Approval for the Town Board to assume Lead Agency status for the coordinated SEQR review for the application for the redevelopment of the Touro Health Sciences School.”
