Despite opposition from some residents who feared noise and traffic and even suggested moving it to EPCAL, the Riverhead Town Board on Wednesday night approved the “Freak Out” music festival proposed by Nile Rodgers Productions for the weekend of Aug. 12-14.
The board also approved a ban on 24-hour operations in three zoning districts, including the one where 7-Eleven is proposing a store at the Vinland Commons in Aquebogue.
An attorney for 7-Eleven said afterward that its “highly likely” that 7-Eleven would file a lawsuit challenging the zoning amendment.
The town is already in court with Vinland Commons over that project.
The board also held a 2-hour public hearing on a zone change proposal to allow assisted living on a Mill Road property. (see separate story)
