FARMINGVILLE, NY (July 6, 2016) — Brookhaven Industrial Development Agency Board Chairman Frederick C. Braun, III announced that the IDA will sponsor the July 22, 2016 meeting of the Long Island Business Development Council, at which developer and IDA board member Michael Kelly will discuss his plans for the Arboretum at Farmingville, a project that is expected to help revitalize the hamlet. He will be joined by Brookhaven Town Councilman Kevin LaValle and Michael Wenz, President of the Farmingville Hills Chamber of Commerce.

Brookhaven Town Supervisor Edward Romaine and Braun are expected to welcome attendees at the economic development group’s meeting, which begins at noon at the Courtyard by Marriott Hotel, 5000 Expressway Drive S., Ronkonkoma.

The Arboretum is a proposed $100 million residential and retail complex at an abandoned 65.24-acre farm on the south side of Horseblock Road, west of Blue Point Road.
It has received key zoning-change approvals from the Brookhaven Town Board. Plans for the Arboretum call for 292 residential units and a two-story, 24,000-square-foot commercial building divided equally between offices and restaurant space. The project will be developed by Kelly Builders and Development Group.
