Community Board 1 overwhelmingly approved the city’s plan Tuesday to relocate its sanitation garage on 21st Street to an industrial area in Astoria.

The board, by a vote of 31 in favor and one opposed, approved the plan to move the facility from 34-28 21st St. to 31-11 20th Ave., by Luyster Creek.

The Department of Sanitation presented its plans to the board and said the current facility on 21st Street is no longer big enough, is in poor structural condition, and is located in a residential district.
