Message from Supervisor LaFountain: Assessment and cleanup underway at Shadow Pines
On April 27, 2018 the Town of Penfield completed its acquisition of the former Shadow Pines Golf course including the Clark House and other structures. We immediately began assessing conditions of the 212 acres and structures for public safety and maintenance purposes. Penfield TV has videotaped the entire property to establish a baseline of assets, conditions, and to assist DPW with its initial assessment of public safety.
During the week of May 14, DPW crews will start removing hazardous downed, dead, and diseased trees. You will see this activity along Whalen Road and around the Clark House. Also, the grassy area along the Atlantic/Whalen intersection will be more regularly mowed by the Town’s DPW roadside mowing crew.
Crews will also begin work on the Clark House structures and plantings to improve its curb appeal in keeping with the neighborhood. The lawn will also be mowed regularly.
During this assessment and work period the public is not allowed on any portion of the property. We will notify residents when cleanup is complete and it is safe to enjoy designated portions of the property.
Safety is our priority. Thank you for your patience as we perform this necessary work.
