Babylon Village Board extends moratorium on new restaurants until 2019

Trustees hope to expand retail shops under policy

Share

BABYLON — The streets in the Village of Babylon are full of restaurants, however, there will not be any new places to eat until at least 2019 because of a new policy passed earlier this month. The Village of Babylon Board of Trustees prolonged an old policy that bans new restaurants from opening. The board is hoping to expand retail shops in the area now, since there are already about 30 restaurants and bars.

The policy comes as a new performing arts center is set to open early next year, and the trustees are worried how parking in the village will be once it opens.

The policy will be in effect until the end of 2018, and the board of trustees will then decide whether or not to lift the ban for 2019.
