The Property is a unique open space asset, centered in the southwestern part of the town of Penfield. Formerly Shadow Pines Golf Course, the land was purchased by the Town of Penfield in 2018 for general municipal use, after the golf course had ceased operation in 2016. Voters had overwhelmingly approved the purchase via a public referendum in February of 2018. The vote indicated that residents desire that the land be preserved as recreational or natural open space.
After purchase, the Town Board appointed a committee of residents to provide recommendations for the best possible use of this property. The committee, known as the Shadow Pines Land Use Advisory Committee, compiled its recommendations in a final report in 2019. Recommendations took into account the recommendations of the Moratorium Committee, the 2020 Comprehensive Plan, residents, and Town staff.
The engineering and landscape architecture firm BME Associates was hired to develop a Conceptual Master Plan for the Property based on recommendations of the Shadow Pines Land Use Advisory Committee.
BME Associates, the consultant that the town utilized for the design of the new parking area and future pickleball courts, has completed the design plans and has submitted them to the agencies for review and approval. These agencies included the Monroe County Department of Transportation, the Monroe County Water Authority, the Monroe County Department of Environmental Services, and the Monroe County Health Department. Once all the comments are received and the plans finalized for approvals, bid specifications will be prepared in order to put the construction job out for a public bid.
