A state Supreme Court ruling has upheld the town’s rezoning for the AvalonBay project in Huntington Station.
In the ruling released Thursday, Justice Joseph C. Pastoressa rejected a number of objections to the controversial 379-unit multifamily development.
Those objections included complaints that the town had created illegal spot zoning and failed to take into account the environmental impact of the project.
The Greater Huntington Civic Group and resident Nancy Graffeo, who lives near the project, filed the suit.
Pastoressa found that the group hadn’t proven it had standing, with identifiable members who could establish that they were affected by the project.
He also rejected the spot zoning claim, saying the organization failed to prove its claim and that there were several multifamily developments in surrounding areas.

And, in dismissing the suit, the court ruled that the environmental impact study submitted by the town was sufficient. See the attached pdf for the ruling.
The town approved the rezoning in June 2011.
