Priority #1: Get that building knocked down ASAP. Its neglect by the owner is such a shame. The county health office should have already closed down the business; sooooo many health code violations, as well as building code violations which have been ignored. Tom Carvel would be so embarrassed by what the town and the county and the owner have allowed to happen to this historic location which is now irreversibly dilapidated.

What a shame! Years ago I contact Carvel corporate about the condition of this store to see if they could get the franchise owner to do anything about it. Corporate didn't care.

Very sad indeed. Tom must be rolling in his grave. I can't believe that this has been allowed has happened to this historic landmark.

Building code violations ignored?
That's not a neighborhood association flexing its muscle.

We must acknowledge that our governments - Town and County - aren't living up to their responsibilities. A clear, unambiguous set of instructions to the Building Department to ENFORCE THE TOWN CODE AS WRITTEN (as contrasted to the way the inspectors choose to interpret it in meetings with owners and their checkbooks) would significantly reduce the involvement of neighborhood associations. Their activity is a direct response to a clear failure of the Town officials charged with enforcing the law. The deliberate flouting of the building code on Route 119 at the car dealer wouldn't have happened if that neighborhood association was on the ball - but a building inspector, a greedy owner and a sack full of cash make a strong case absent any sign the neighborhood cares.
