He said that Village code dictates that the plan should have been renewed at the March 12 meeting, but the Village board chose to table the renewal to April 23.

These kinda lawsuits are killing business in america. In other countries when they want to build something, they throw the shovel right in the ground. Instead of waiting years for permits and lossing loads of money fighting frivolous law suits.

woudnt make sense instead of law suits to spend that money and energy on making more improvements to the village??? new village may be one of the best things to happen in the village and the blighted four corners, if investors thought a hotel would have worked they would have built it. as for the parking issue there is always plenty of parking behind main street, walking is good for you and gives you the chance to meet people and see what the main street shops have to offer lets get on with the construction instead of lawsuits spend that money on some nice new benches for main street it would improve main street and that way the people who cant walk two blocks from there car will have a place to sit and rest.

Just think ... 291 new apartments. Wait until there are 500 or more extra cars are continually parked downtown and then tell me we have enough parking. This Tritec project is ill conceived and should be redesigned!

As the last owner occupide home owner on Lake St. , I would ask TRITEC to build a tier parking facility to resolve the parking problem. If I remeber right this was in the original plans. If this is not feaseable then purchase the slumlord homes that exist on Lake street and tear them dowm. I still feel that the congestion on Lake st. will cause traffic problems. I Can't wait for the Live after Five's after the TRITEC project is comlpete.

You are really talking about one corner. Two corners are pawn shops and one is a realtor/attorney. People do not flood into Patchogue for the pawn shops or the realtor/attorney. Let's be honest about this.
