The Town of Penfield has been working with Barton and Loguidice for several years to investigate the existing stream and bank conditions along a portion of Allen's Creek. A significant hill slide several years ago blocked the creek and temporarily diverted its flow, causing erosion and changes to the creek over time. The review covered the section of the creek located between the Penfield/Brighton town line downstream to the Allen's Creek townhomes and along the rear yards of Shirewood and Burrows Hills Drive. After submitting applications to both the NYSDEC and the US Army Corps, the Town of Penfield has secured all the required permits to conduct the necessary stabilization on this section of the creek. The proposed stream restoration and stabilization actions aim to stabilize currently eroding banks, stop channel incision, reconnect the channel to its floodplain to increase storm flow attenuation and restore the channel plan and profile to balance sediment load with sediment transport capability. This work will comply with the received environmental permits and will be monitored by the Town of Penfield, NYSDEC, and a stream stabilization consultant.

A neighborhood informational meeting was held by the Town of Penfield on March 28, 2023. Town Engineer Mark Valentine and Wendell Buckman of Barton & Loguidice presented the scope of the project and answered questions regarding the process. Watch the video recording below.
