As being reported in Newsday today, plans to demolish 527 Deer Park Ave have been stalled as the developers were denied a permit by Babylon Village. The matter now moves to the Zoning Board of Appeals.
Chase Ognibene will need the Zoning Board of Appeals to amend a prior building permit approval requiring that the house be maintained, according to Darrell Conway, a West Babylon attorney specializing in land use applications.
Chase Ognibene and his father, Steve Ognibene, still intend to build two new houses at the Indian Crossing subdivision at Deer Park and Ketewamoke avenues, Conway said, but the permit denial lengthens and complicates a fight that could eventually end up in New York State Supreme Court
This is just one step in the fight to preserve this historic home. It’s clear that the Ognibenes plsn to fight this as far as they can so they can knock down the 527 DPA and build two more McMansions on their Indian Crossing development.
