Cedarhurst-based Paramount Construction changed plans for a proposed apartment complex at Court and Payan Avenue to assuage critics of the building who thought it would be too large for the area, according to Dominick Minerva, Paramount’s attorney, who spoke at a Jan. 8 Village of Valley Stream board of trustees meeting.
The Valley Stream Chamber of Commerce has served the village’s business community since April 1955, and it has since sponsored a variety of events to promote the village’s downtown.

The developer whose plan to build nine single-bedroom apartments on Hoffman Avenue was rejected by the Valley Stream Board of Zoning and Appeals in May instead plans to construct a building with six two-bedroom apartments, which complies with village code.
