Since last on Muncey Rd. and Udall Rd., a lot of suggestions have been passed around regarding what should be constructed at that location.
At the meeting, a majority of residents voiced their opinions against a 24-convenience store that the owners of the property (Jon Halperin, Peter Halperin and Stephen Halperin) wanted to potentially build.
Discussions on both the Patch articles and the WI Patch Facebook page have been heating up with mixed opinions on what the Getty station should be replaced with.
Some residents, like Genevieve Cesa, is in full support of a 24-hour convenience store. "The whole corner needs a facelift and it should start with 7-Eleven!" she said. "You have my vote. Build it please!"
But other residents see it as a terrible fit for that part of town.
"That area is looking rundown and the late night crowd a 7-Eleven attracts would only make it worse," said resident Andrea Gebler. "How many 7-Elevens does WI really need? The two on Union and Higbie are enough."
Longtime resident, Desiree Aiello, just wants to see something new there. "I have lived here 42 years, right off Muncey," she said. "Anything is better than whats there now..."
Compiled below are a list of suggestions taken off of article and Facebook comments on potential replacements. Please take a second to vote on what you think is the fit for West Islip.
