The electric car company Tesla plans to open a new service center on a vacant commercial plot in Smithtown.

It’s part of the effort by the company to expand its footprint on Long Island. There is currently a service center in Syosset, a sales center in Manhasset, and two galleries in Huntington Station and East Hampton.

Tesla uses direct sales instead of independent car dealers. Under New York State law, it can own and operate no more than five stores in the state.

The Long Island Association has released its “Top 18 Priorities for 2018” and has made moving all downstate horseracing to Belmont Racetrack one of its top legislative priorities this year.

The LIA says moving racing from Aqueduct in Queens to Belmont would make it, along with a new Islanders arena, a year-round destination.
