New Owners of Historic Main Street Building May Demo to Make Way for Retail


By KELLY CAMPBELL

The new owners of the turn of the century home at 189 Main Street may have plans to knock it down.

At the May 27 Northport Village Planning Board meeting, a “pre-preliminary site plan application” was on the agenda for the Board. The owners, Danielle and Jonathan Panichella, canceled their appearance before the Board prior to the meeting. Board member Liz Thalheimer, however, broached the topic in the couple’s absence.

“Although it’s just heresy right now, but their long term ideas are different from the current site plan,” she said.
