Yorktown About to Enter New Development Era

Yorktowns era of new development is coming and the rewards will benefit every resident in the future.

The town hall seminar "The Approval Process" of Wednesday was in the spirit of cooperation and information. The seminar was designed to give the public information on how to move through the process. 

On hand were Supervisor Susan Siegel, building inspector John Winters, town environmental consultant Bruce Barber, town engineer Sharon Robison, and planning director John Tegedar. The focus of the seminar was to try and enlighten the public and members of the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce on the issues facing the approval and permit process. Seems like Yorktown is about to enter an era of new development and everyone is trying to stream line the process.

Bruce Barber said that 'While other towns are canceling planning board meetings due to lack of applications, Yorktown is about to enter an era of unpressedented growth."

In or about to enter the application process is Contractors Register, Costco, Crompond Corners, State Land Corporation, Fieldhome, Mohegan Lake Motors, Creative Living and Croton Overlook. The Yorktown Chamber of Commerce has been working diligently for the last few years to entise these companies to settle in Yorktown. These projects are smart developement in their respective locations and do not impact the school system. The development of these projects will give the homeowners of Yorktown tax relief in the next few years and will allow Yorktown to meet its finacial obligations without cutting services or laying off staff. Contibutions from the developers will also play a major role in repairing and improving Yorktowns infurstructure.

The sense of everyone working together was impressive, the jobs that will be created is inperative and the final result is something Yorktown can't afford to pass up.
