YORKTOWN, N.Y. President of the Yorktown Chamber of Commerce Joe Visconti said he thinks Yorktown is about to enter a business boomand Yorktown Supervisor Susan Siegel said she believes the booming applications and development are proof that Yorktown is business friendly.
There are $100 million in commercial development going on in Yorktown right now, Visconti said. If you couple that and these projects we have going on, and with IBM, I think Yorktown is getting ready for a business boom.
Siegel stressed that the ongoing development projects are proof that the town is open for business, and displaces the sentiment that Yorktown wasnt business friendly, a stigma she has been working to get rid of.
Who is saying that Yorktown is unfriendly? Where have they been? Siegel said. Siegel noted projects like Field Home and Lake Mohegan Motors as well as rezoning of the Staples Plaza and Village Traditions which could bring warehousing use or additional office use.
Visconti noted projects like Stateland, Crompond Crossing and Costco and say they would not only be good for business, but in turn for the tax payers.
Other towns are cancelling planning board meetings because they dont have enough applications, Visconti said. Not here, not in Yorktown. Were just getting ready for the business boom.
