I am a constituent of Councilman Dan Halloran and I am glad to have an elected official that I can count on taking action.
Star Nissan/Toyota has, over the past 10 years, violated all noise, screening, dumpster enclosure, and parking requirements of the Zoning Resolution, as well as the ventilation requirements of the Administrative Code. I have also seen their workers drive cars in the opposite direction down a one-way street in order to save time.
Numerous elected officials have reached out to the dealership over the years in an effort to come to a resolution, but to no avail. Councilman Dan Halloran is not "out of control" as they would clearly love to portray him, but frustrated that after having held two recent meetings with Star Nissan they again refused to cooperate.
I applaud Councilman Halloran for taking a stance for his constituents. How long must Star Nissan continue to get away with all these violations and completely disregard the concerns of the community? Why should the residents have their quality of life reduced because of an uncooperative business owner?
I wish there were more elected officials like Councilman Halloran out there taking a proactive role in their community rather than filing it away as just another constituent complaint.
