The village of Mineola is considering a plan to adopt standardized storefronts in its downtown area, which will be presented at Wednesday’s board meeting.

Village Mayor Scott Strauss said this has been in the works for a while, and that he’d enlisted the support of an outside consultant and a committee of board members and residents.

The standardization of storefronts will give the neighborhood a quaint feeling, Strauss added, to add to the new businesses and apartment complexes that are steadily arriving to downtown Mineola.

The proposed policy would not be retroactive and would apply to new business owners. In order to move forward, the village board would have to formally approve the plan.

“We are literally going to change in a positive way the face of this village,” Strauss said.

The meeting will take place at 6:30 p.m. at village hall, 155 Washington Avenue, in Mineola.
