Flo's On The Go Rejected By ZBA

Proposed food truck business would have been located on Lake Street.

A proposed food truck version of Blue Point's popular  was rejected recently by the Patchogue Village Zoning Board of Appeals (ZBA).

The rejection was publicly announced at Tuesday's Village Board of Trustees meeting, but a reason for the rejection was not given.

Patch will update when it has more information, but a April ZBA meeting regarding what would of been "Flo's On The Go" was attended by several local business owners and residents who were openly against the truck.

They cited issues such as the business not taking a traditional retail spot on Main Street and its 70 Lake Street location across from  near some residences. Some of the business owners felt that the ruling over the truck would have set a Village precedent, and said they would consider converting their businesses to a truck model to avoid costs.

Had the eatery been approved, owners David and Connor Vigliotta told Patch in April that it would of been a 18 by 7 foot truck with two to three staff members serving the majority of the Flo's menu.

The building inspector has been tasked with ensuring compliance with planning and zoning board determinations. In fact the special permit would have been valid for only one year and would have been subject to the conditions set forth by the planning board. Enforcement again. "The point is moot" as Jessie Jackson would say. No Flow's. The property will remain nice and quiet and blighted.

Food for thought Just because a piece of land is vacant doesn't qualify it as blighted. And this particular piece of land is certainly not blighted. Ther is no litter, no trash, no overgrown grass etc. So, no blight Enforcement? Enforcement in the village has been inconsistent and selective. There are many examples. So it is no surprise that residents are unwilling to rely on enforcement to assure their quality of life By the way, since you seem so sure of your point of view, I wonder why you have chosen not to identify yourself.

Little off subject but can someone tell me how much revenue the town or the county could benefit from some or one law enforcement ticketing LITTERBUGS at Taco Bell? Have you ever seen it in the a.m? Ticket them and you have a continuess flow of $$$$$$ each and every day. Why does this continue? And Taco Bell is not the only culprit 7-11 also could be a boom from litterbug tickets!

No different than a hot dog truck or Mister Softee...how does this affect any of the sit down restaurants in Patchogue? Cause it's convenient to grab some good food on the go? Sour grapes is all it is. And I don't wanna hear about it being the entrance of the town cause the other end of East Patchogue looks like a scene from apocalypse now getting greeted by homeless people. Let Flo's have their food truck and stop crying.
