It's About Trust... Village of Great Neck's Development Tactics Rebuffed
After a contentious public hearing on Oct. 15 at the Village of Great Neck Board of Trustees meeting, the mayor and trustees withdrew a motion to place a six-month moratorium on any demolition, construction or substantive alteration to the homes on Arrandale Avenue.
