Clarissa Road, Shopping Center Discussed at Meeting
Although there is no application pending before the Village of Mineola Board of Trustees, representatives of Gensel's Furniture Gallery and Metro Centers held a community meeting to discuss the latest plans for the shopping center, located north of Jericho Turnpike, between Herricks and Beebe Roads. Previous plans, which included the sale of Clarissa Road to the land developer Metro Centers, were turned down by the village's board of trustees. The community meeting, held last Wednesday, could mean that further plans for the site will eventually be submitted to the village board.
