Community Meeting about Sunoco Property in Glen Head


The Glen Head - Glenwood Civic Council will hold a community meeting on Tuesday, August 18, at 8 P.M. in the auditorium at North Shore High School.

The meeting will focus on the Sunoco property on the southeast corner of Glen Head Road and Glen Cove Avenue, where a local developer is in contract to purchase the lot and refurbish it to lease to an occupant who would operate a 7-Eleven convenience store.

Civic representatives have met with the developer and the Town of Oyster Bay, contacted Sunoco and 7-Eleven, and expressed opposition to 24/7 operation in Glen Head. Civic group representatives will report on these activities, provide brief updates on other issues they have been following, and solicit community input.

The 7-Eleven company has identified the Sunoco property as a priority location. The company requires its stores to operate 24/7 and sells more cold beer than any other U.S. convenience retailer. The lot is zoned general business, which permits 24-hour operation.

The Glen Head-Glenwood Civic Council, Inc., is made up of the Glen Knolls-Glen Head Estates, Glenwood/Glen Head, Harbor Hill, Hill Terrace and Todd Estates civic associations and the Radcliff Manor Neighborhood Association.

What suggestions for use of the property have been made?

I think a charming/Retro little diner would be great. Serving breakfast and lunch..maybe dinner. It would serve for those who want to meet and have a bite. Not interferring with the deli's and other food service business' i.e. Bernards.
Emphasis on the "Charming" factor.

Is there something Glen Head residents need that we have to leave town for? For example an optical store which there isn't one for miles. I am not saying put a Lens Crafters there but we can come up with ideas like that.

love the retro diner idea....we were thinking of the same type of business.

7-11 would be much better on Glen Cove Road across from TD Bank!

Also love the idea of a diner... especially since the Brookville Diner is gone!
