Burger King Proposed for Ramp Ford Lot in Port Jeff Station

Multiple designs shown at civic meeting for new fast food restaurant.

The Terryville-Port Jefferson Civic Association saw multiple designs for a proposed Burger King to be built on the Ramp Ford truck lot on Route 347 in Port Jefferson, according to Charles F. McAteer, a civic member.

McAteer said that the attorney for Burger King, Timothy Shea, presented plans for the fast food restaurant last December.

The Burger King is being proposed for the truck lot just east of the automotive dealership, next to Eager Beaver car wash on Route 347.

Some residents have expressed opposition of the proposed Burger King at that location, according to Laurie Green, vice president of the civic association.

We will follow up on this story as it develops.

Would you believe that, that intersection used to be a "roundabout" ?

Bill, yes. When my family moved to Stony Brook (I was 2), my parents told me 347 had 5 lights between their house and NSP. Last time I checked there's now 37 between 112 and NSP. Eventually I'm sure the town plans to put an automatic tax machine (red light camera) at the 112 intersection and say all the problems are fixed.

We live behind where Burger Brothers want to build their Burger King. They have assured us they will take care so there is no noise, no loitering, a beautiful 6 foot white fence between our properties and the Burger King, lighting will not shine in our backyards, and so on and so on. Oh yes we believe all of this - they "care" about the neighborhood! Really? So if you care about the neighborhood then why not look into the suggestions made by many members of the Civic Association and use the empty, abandoned stores/lots throughout PJS? There is the old 84 Lumber property, Thomas Dodge property, Jack in the Box, Arby's, North Shore Lincoln, to name a few sites that would be better utilized rather than sitting empty. Oh no, they HAVE to be right across from MacDonalds because (in Burger Brothers words) "someone in the car may want Macdonalds and someone else will want Burger King." Apparently Burger Brothers do not drive down 347 - making a turn from one to the other is no easy feat - very few, if any, will risk their lives for a burger! Please everyone, come to the civic association meeting on February 28, 2012 and let's get together and SAY NO to this establishment. In this small corridor between Jayne Blvd. and Woodhull Avenue ther are a minimum of 16 eateries - do we really need another? Please help us!!!!
