What ever happened to all of the renovations that were supposed to be done? This building is such an eyesore in the middle of town

This building with multi levels should receive a special Fire Inspection.
And a extra inspection fees for all the combustible uses. Will any one FOIL
the Fire Report ?

Fire Sprinklers ?, Code Enforcement ? When did the Town of Yorktown send its Fire Inspector to see if the kitchens and grease ducts have Sprinkler Systems.? We hope the rebuilt gasoline pumps are protected. Another miss by the Building Department and the Planning Department. Thank GOD for our Volunteer Fire Department .
