Proposed self-storage facility in Sayville meets with opposition from community leaders


At the Town of Islip Planning Board meeting last night, Thursday, October 30 a presentation was made by Safeguard Storage in conjunction with an application for a zone change on two parcels of land at 246 N. Main Street in Sayville where a now vacant sports complex building stands.

The properties are currently zoned B1 (for business including restaurants, office space) and Safeguard Storage is requesting a change to I1 (industrial).

Greater Sayville Chamber of Commerce President, Eileen Tyznar and Sayville Civic Association President, Christine Sarni both spoke during the public portion of the meeting expressing their opposition to the zone change and questioned the added value of a self-torage facility in Sayville citing the 2-mile radius proximity of at least three other existing/proposed self-storage businesses.
