The company has agreed not to build a mall on the property.Mall or Nothing: The Battle Over Syosset Shopping Center“Unfortunately for the taxpayers of Oyster Bay, the Town and Simon’s misinformation campaign allowed them to slip their rotten deal past the public in a low turnout election,” Long Island Jobs Now, a Taubman affiliated group opposed to the referendum, said in a statement.“The referendum was never about a mall, which can still be built on Taubman’s property,” the statement continued. “We will continue to push this case in the courts and are committed to making sure the Town acts in the best interests of its taxpayers rather than Simon Property Group – whose only interest is maintaining its mall monopoly.”Venditto had choice words for Taubman, as well.“The residents of the Town of Oyster Bay have spoken and by a 2:1 margin, rejected Taubman’s mall, Taubman’s greed, and Taubman’s shameful and unethical behavior throughout the entire referendum campaign,” the supervisor said.
