Phase One permits general construction and allows retail on a pre-order/pick up model. We have provided a link to detailed information on the state’s re-opening program on our website. It is anticipated that several upstate regions will be qualified as of Friday. In addition landscapers and gardeners will be able move beyond basic maintenance activity statewide as of Friday. As a reminder in White Plains May 15 is also the last day gasoline powered leaf blowers may be used until October 1st. Please report violations to the police at 422-6111.
