Four Commercial Buildings Proposed Near Yorktown/Somers Border

YORKTOWN, N.Y. - A plan to build four commercial buildings on an 18.1-acre site on the Yorktown-Somers border is being revived after several years of inactivity.

The plan, proposed by Zat Construction, was discussed as far back as 2008 and most recently in 2011. It calls the property at 76 Route 6, near Whispering Pines, to be subdivided into three parcels containing four commercial buildings. The Peekskill-based Zat Construction, owned by Victor Tonndorf, purchased the vacant land for $350,000 in 2002, according to records filed with the county clerk’s office. It is zoned for industrial use.

“They haven’t proposed any changes,” said John Tegeder, town of Yorktown planning director. “They’re just kind of restarting it.”

The plan does not require any zone changes and, despite being reviewed for several years, has never received any approvals, Tegeder said. Zat Construction met with the Yorktown Planning Board on Monday, Jan. 23, to discuss reviving the plan.

“It’s a well-developed plan,” he said. “We’ve looked at it for a number of years. It just never got to the finish line, for whatever reason.”

According to Yorktown Planning Board meeting minutes from April 11, 2011, the buildings would be a combination of medical, office, kitchen cabinet, plumbing and others with possibly a small retail element.

Are We All Connected?

A question that has long plagued me is whether we, as a species, have evolved in our consciousness of our interconnectedness to one another.

Influential philosophers, writers, economists and politicians have debated whether that should be our focus in the first place. Writers such as Ayn Rand (“The Fountainhead”) and her followers have suggested that our center of attention should ...

Hold Con Edison Accountable

To the editor,

I am writing to suggest that my fellow residents assist in holding Con Edison responsible for its disastrous handling of these storms and, further, to support steps that would ensure these now common shortcomings are not repeated.

Like too many here, I, my wife and three children ages 5, 3, and 8 months have been without power for more than a week. That we could live within ...
