Nicklan LLC Truck Depot, Storage Facility & Tom’s Garage

Nicklan LLC is an important project proposed for the 16 acres  on  the southside of RT 25-Middle Country Rd at the traffic light with Swezey Lane.  It calls for the construction of a new mini-storage facility open to the public, which will be located closest to the entrance off 25, and a new truck maintenance facility and storage yard for the sand trucks that currently use the site daily. The popular Tom’s garage and car repair shop will continue in its present location at the southern end of the parcel; it will be repainted to match the color schemes of the new buildings. The project required a Change of Zone granted by the Brookhaven Town Board on August 26, 2021, several variances granted by the BZA on December 13, 2023 and a special use permit/site plan approved at the final hearing of the TOB Planning Board on February 26, 2024..  The 8 acre eastern portions of the property will be retained in their natural state and deeded to the Town of Brookhaven as Open Space. Owners Stan Morabito and Nicholas Testa are looking to make the parcel safer. especially for  their Benimax truck drivers.  MICA wants the entire community to be safer, too! NYS DOT is requiring careful readjustments at the site entrance so trucks and cars can turn in and out safely from all directions.  The landscape plans for the north, east and south buffers feature many native trees and shrubs, including quaking aspen, grey birch, red oak, northern bayberry, inkberry, witch hazel, beach plum and lowbush blueberry. An extensive re-vegetation of 54,000 sq feet of the open space calls for  489 trees and 1,358 shrubs to be planted,
