Supervisor Kate Murray and Councilman Gary Hudes welcomed Levittown Ford to the neighborhood on Thursday during the ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new car dealership located at 3195 Hempstead Turnpike.
Murray and Hudes played a role assisting the owners of Levittown Ford in finding a suitable home, facilitating interaction between the business partners and the property owner as they worked to strike a deal. Though the owners of the prospective dealership considered other nearby locations, they ultimately decided to open on the property at 3195 Hempstead Turnpike, which keeps in line with both the business’s priorities and the character of the surrounding residential and business community.
“We are pleased to welcome Levittown Ford into the community,” Murray said. “I thank Councilman Hudes and the owners of Levittown Ford for coming together to open a vibrant new business on a main thoroughfare in our township. This grand opening signifies our township’s mission to encourage new businesses, create jobs and stimulate the local economy.”
“Anything we can do to help bring fine businesses into our community is a plus for our economy and for our residents,” Hudes said. “I believe that Levittown Ford will be an important piece to the community for years to come.”
“I want to thank Hempstead Town and the community for allowing us to be a part of the neighborhood as a Ford dealership,” said Levittown Ford co-owner Joel Sporn. “The town jumped through hoops for us and we appreciate the fact they saw in us a reason to get the project moving. We are excited to be here.”
The grand opening of Levittown Ford is another example of Hempstead Town’s work to support new businesses and job creation in the township. A neighboring vacant property that once housed a synagogue will soon be the new home for the prestigious Zwanger-Pesiri Radiology clinic.
