A recent planning board hearing has sparked new interest in the debate of the proposed 7-Eleven at the corner of Muncey Road and Udall Road in West Islip, with many residents and business owners in opposition of the project.
Though Eliot Bloom, the West Islip lawyer representing the owners of the location, said the convenience chain is the only business to show interest in the project, residents still have other businesses or uses for the property in mind.
Last year, we asked our readers what they wanted to see built at the property. Still, the majority of voters, thirty-seven percent, said they would like the 7-Eleven built.
