The Riverhead Town Board on Tuesday unanimously authorized the signing of a letter of intent to sell most of the remaining town-owned land at the Enterprise Park at Calverton, including both runways, to Luminati Aerospace LLC for $40 million.
Luminati has had a presence at EPCAL since 2015, when it purchased the former SkyDive Long Island property for $3.4 million. More recently, it leased space in a portion of the former Hangar 6 building, which also houses PODS and Mivila Foods. READ

Available for cats and dogs, the event should service close to 70 animals, said shelter director Gillian Wood-Pultz.
“Spay/neuter is the only 100 percent effective method of birth control for dogs and cats and the most efficient tool for reducing pet overpopulation available,” she said via email. “Studies show that spayed and neutered pets live 20 percent longer on average than unaltered pets.”
NFAWL took over operations at Riverhead Town’s dog shelter last year, and with financial support from Riverhead Move the Animal Shelter, will be moving to the town’s Henry Pfeifer Community Center in the future after Town Board members voted 3-2 recently to OK the move.
The spay and neuter clinic will take place on Oct. 29 and Oct. 30. Appointments are required; call 566-8870 to set up a time.

The 15-acre property has just seven acres of vines, but also a 4,500-square-foot custom colonial home and tasting room. The vineyard estate was built by the late Peter DiBernardi, the vineyard’s original owner and winemaker, who died in March.
