YORKTOWN, N.Y. -- Residents will have a chance to voice their opinions on two beautification projects under consideration by the Yorktown Town Board on Tuesday, Dec. 20.
The two Shrub Oak projects include the Mohegan Auto and Tire Center located at 1581 East Main St., as well as the Getty Station at 3700 Barger St.
Proposed improvements include new fencing, enhanced landscaping, new signage and the removal of unsightly trailers.
"These proposals could bring about some aesthetically pleasing changes to the Shrub Oak hamlet of Yorktown," Supervisor Michael Grace said. "Both proposals have been advanced through the approval process with proper input from our internal departments. We now want to hear from the public."
The Getty Station improvements are a result of the owner approaching the town for permission to install new tanks. At a town board work session in September, the board came up with the idea to capitalized on the opportunity to improve the site which is seen as a bookend of Shrub Oak.
"This could be a win for the town and a win for the local business," explained Councilman Greg Bernard. "I felt it was a great opportunity to make some improvements to a site located at a key intersection in town while the operator enhances his equipment. I applaud the employees of the town for taking swift action and not letting the application be tripped by any red tape."
The public hearing for both projects is scheduled for 7:30 p.m. on Monday, Dec. 20 at 363 Underhill Ave., Yorktown Heights.
