Yorktown is asking for state permission to paint a unity mural at the site where hate speech was discovered this past weekend.
Graffiti, including slurs toward the Black and Jewish communities, was found spray-painted under an overpass.
The town board has now adopted a "Hate Has No Home" resolution making a mural request to the state.
It has also directed the Yorktown Arts & Culture Committee to organize the rules by which the town can accept mural proposals from artists.
