TUCKAHOE, N.Y. – The Eastchester Daily Voice reached out to local officials to ask what New Year’s resolutions are for Eastchester and Tuckahoe.
Tuckahoe Trustee Stephen Quigley is looking forward to several things in the village, and hopes to fill the many empty storefronts that litter Main Street.
“I would like to explore ways to attract new retail businesses to Tuckahoe, particularly on Main Street, where there are a number of empty stores,” he said. “Tuckahoe can be the perfect alternative to the high commercial rents in nearby Bronxville and Scarsdale.”
Quigley said he is eager to continue building relationships with his fellow Trustees and Mayor Steve Ecklond so they can better serve the community.
“We have a common purpose: ensuring the highest possible level of services to the residents of Tuckahoe while remaining responsible watchdogs over the expenditures of the residents’ taxes,” he said. “We want to find a balance to the village’s budget that minimizes the impact on taxpayers while maintaining and improving the level of services that our residents have come to expect.”
There will be several construction projects in the village in 2013, and Quigley said he is hopeful that it boost the local economy.
“I am looking forward to beginning construction on the new residential and commercial complexes on Main Street and in Crestwood,” he said. “They will be attractive additions to the village landscape and should bring vitality and economic stimulation to our commercial districts.”
