Village of Lewiston puts kibosh on food trucks
Tue, Feb 4th 2014 07:00 am

Village of Lewiston: Paladino lays out plaza plan
Sat, Feb 1st 2014 09:00 am
William Paladino met with the Village of Lewiston Planning Board Wednesday to update members on the status of his development plan. The Ellicott Development CEO intends to create a U-shaped plaza with three main units: 1) two restaurants (one fast food) and a retail store; 2) a two-story retail/bank/commercial building; and 3) a drug store. He may build condos on the lot's west end, too.

"It's taken us long to get to this point, because every time we move or tweak anything, it has to go back to the engineers and they've got to redo everything because of the site grades and slopes and things of that nature," Paladino said.

Sat, Feb 1st 2014 07:00 am

He suggested food trucks have an unfair advantage over brick-and-mortar eateries.
