I would like to thank all who participated in our March 2 public hearing on the proposed Local law No. 1 of 2016 to put into effect a twelve-month moratorium on development of the Shadow Pines and Shadow Lake golf course properties. Hundreds of residents have already expressed their opinions (in person and online) for or against the moratorium.
As a reminder, today (March 4) at 5:00 p.m. is the deadline to ask to serve on an advisory committee that is being formed to study potential uses and impacts of the ‘The Shadows’ properties. The committee will report its findings and recommendations to the Penfield Town Board. Those who wish to serve on the committee should send a letter expressing their desire and relevant skills/qualifications to me at email@example.com. The time commitment to serve on this committee will require a few hours each week for the full duration of the twelve-month moratorium.
To date, more than 90 people have asked to be considered for the advisory committee. The Town Board plans to seat a cross-section of 20 neighbors and stakeholders. In addition, representatives from the New York State and Monroe County departments of transportation, other subject matter experts, and relevant town staff will serve as resources and advisors.
Those who wish to weigh in for or against the moratorium may do so through 5:00 p.m., Wednesday, March 9. Please state your position using this online form or by letter to Town of Penfield Supervisor, 3100 Atlantic Avenue, Penfield, New York, 14526.
The Town Board is expected to vote on the moratorium at its March 23 meeting.
