Town of Penfield to host groundbreaking event on July 9 for new DPW facility
On Tuesday, July 9, Penfield Town Supervisor Jeff Leenhouts and the Penfield Town Board will host a groundbreaking event to formally mark the construction of a new Department of Public Works facility. The event starts at 1:30 p.m. at the DPW complex (1607 Jackson Road).

With the original DPW facility built in the 1950s, the new facility will be a tremendous boost to operating efficiency while ensuring the Town’s vital equipment, such as plow trucks, is properly stored and protected.

The new facility will be built on the northern side of the current DPW complex (1607 Jackson Road) and total approximately 73,000 square feet. The facility includes a 26-bay truck garage, a maintenance area, an administration office, a fueling station, and modern safety features. It will also include expanded men’s and women’s restrooms and locker room facilities.

Construction is expected to be completed in the fall of 2026. 

“This project has been years in the making, and I am excited to formally break ground,” said Penfield Town Supervisor Jeff Leenhouts. “When completed, this new facility will greatly improve our operating efficiency and employee safety, allowing our team to better serve the Penfield community.”

Community members are invited to join Town officials and local leaders to mark the momentous occasion. Limited parking will be available at the DPW facility with overflow parking available in Veterans Memorial Park.
