On February 8, 2007, HBA obtained a change of zone grant from the Islip Town Board in connection with the proposed conversion of an industrially zoned property to retail use. The zone change paved the way for the opening of an Autozone store. The success of the application, in an area of Islip where retail applications had previously been denied, rested in part upon innovative solutions designed to insure adequate parking for the new retail use, as well as a commitment to revitalize and recycle an out-dated industrial building.
