YORKTOWN, N.Y. - A feeling of euphoria was in the air Thursday as business leaders and elected officials gathered in Yorktown to celebrate the groundbreaking of a new development headlined by Lowe's, which underwent nearly a decade of review by local and state agencies.

In 2010, Breslin Realty submitted an application to build a 151,000 square-foot Costco Wholesale Club at 3220 Crompond Road, a vacant property that was once home to hotel. The project eventually fell apart due to a lengthy review process and opposition from residents and gas station owners.

With Costco out of the equation, Breslin Realty sought another major retail chain to take its place. Last year, the Garden City-based company submitted a revised plan with Lowe's as the centerpiece. The Yorktown Planning Board approved that project in December.

In addition to a 120,663-square-foot Lowe's and 25,448-square-foot garden center, the project also includes a 7,600-square-foot restaurant, a 4,500-square-foot restaurant and a 4,000-square-foot bank. Tenants for those buildings have not been announced.

According to Breslin, the development is on track to be built by November 2018.

I Swear...

As the dust settles on this year’s elections and our gaze inevitably begins to turn to 2018, I would like to take a moment to reflect on this incredible miracle of human interaction called democracy.

Everyone who ran for office this year, or who has run in the past, deserves our thanks for going through an exhausting, sometimes exhilarating and often exasperating electoral marathon, ...

Vote for Change… in Election Campaigns

It’s all over but the shouting; the voting has ended, and the results are in: Depending on where you live, local elections are out of control. Not the part about casting ballots. The part about those mailers, ads and what-not telling you how to cast your ballot.

I don’t have any proof at hand that fake news has overtaken even town-level politics, though nothing would surprise any ...

Veterans Day is a Teachable Moment

Dear Dr. Linda,

I read your column last year about Veterans Day. I would like to see that same column so that parents and teachers can use it to share with their children.

Like the fifth-grade teacher who wrote to you last year, I feel it’s important for children to stop what they’re doing and think about the men and women who protect our country. That’s the purpose of ...
