YORKTOWN, N.Y. - A proposal to demolish the Roma Building and replace it with an even larger structure has complicated matters for the Town Board, which was already reviewing a sizable residential development several hundred feet up the road.

At the Jan. 23 meeting, owners of the Roma Building, at Crompond Road (Route 202) and Saw Mill River Road (Route 35), presented  plans for a mixed-use development with 42 apartments and accommodations for seven or eight commercial tenants. To make the four-story building happen, the board would need to rezone the property and approve several variances, possibly for height and parking restrictions.

About a quarter-mile up the road, a residential development has been proposed for 2.6 acres at Hamblyn Street and Crompond Road. Early iterations of the project, which has been in development for almost a year, included two buildings with 36 apartments. Last week, the applicants showed alternative plans, including one with 10 multifamily town houses (20 units). These plans would also require a change in zone approved by the Town Board.

Assemblyman Kevin Byrne Looks Back on 2018 Legislative Session

July 17, 2018

There’s an old saying, “Our liberty is never safe when the New York State Legislature is in session.” There’s definitely some truth to that. This past legislative session I successfully fought back against several initiatives that would have added to our state’s crushing tax burden, added excessive regulations on businesses that hurt job creation and chipped away at ...

The Adventures of Superdog

I was always very impressed that my dog could bark on command and come when I called his name, until I read in the newspaper about a dog that saved his owner’s life by calling 9-1-1. Apparently, when his owner had a seizure, the dog pushed a speed-dial button for 9-1-1, barked into the receiver for help, and then opened the door when the responders arrived.

Honestly, though, it’s ...

If You See Something, Say Something

July 11, 2018

I am writing this letter because I see something different with the new Yorktown Town Board. I see an open government instead of a dictatorship with rubber stamps. I see the new Town Board working together for the best interests of the residents in Yorktown.

The auditor suggests in his report to not start a capital project without having the money first. A bad example is the Granite Knolls ...
