Recently, the four Commack residents have filed a motion to intervene in the lawsuit between the Marion Carll Farm heirs and Commack School District. School officials have pushed back, fighting the taxpayers request to intervene in defense of the district. Both parties are waiting the decision of a judge as to whether residents will be allowed to have a legal say in the ongoing lawsuit over the historic farm.
The zoning of the industrial area between Commack and Kings Park is pending before Town of Smithtowns Board of Zoning Appeals. Applicants Carlson Associates and FB4Realty have requested the public hearing previously set for Sept. 5 be rescheduled for Nov. 21.
