The developer of the shelter recently filed a lawsuit against the town of Oyster Bay, hoping to continue plans for the shelter at the former Hampton Inn.
Last year, the town went to court and got a restraining order that has kept the project from moving forward.
"It is very important to protect our community and to protect our zoning laws," Oyster Bay Town Supervisor Joseph Saladino said. "For nearly a year, Town of Oyster Bay residents and the Town of Oyster Bay town board have been aggressively fighting Nassau County's illegal plans."
