     Town Projects Update

  1. Beaver Creek Park Project.   Finally, after months of shipping delays, the remaining set of playground equipment, for age group (3-5), has arrived.  Scheduling the installation of this new piece of equipment by the supplier is underway.  In addition, construction has begun on two swing sets.  Finally, there is a number of unfinished site improvements that the contractor is required to make in order to close out the contract agreement.  Work on these improvements is to commence this week.

The completion date for all park improvements is scheduled for this summer contingent upon there being no further shipping delays. The athletic fields, however, will not be available this year for organized team sports. Team sports using the fields at this park will begin in 2023.  This will enable the grassed fields time to mature for the organized team sports.

  1. Brickyard Road Water Tank & Transmission. Bids for this capital project were opened and then were rejected by the Town of Canandaigua Town Board, on Monday, February 7, 2022, when the Board did not approve the 202-B funding authorization needed to move the project forward.

  1. Farmington Market Center Project. The Town Board will re-open the public hearing, at tonight’s meeting. The application involves a request to rezone three (3) parcels of land containing approximately 18.3 acres that are to be involved with the phased buildout of the Farmington Market Center site (which presently includes the Tops Market and Farmington Branch Office of the Canandaigua National Bank).  The Town Board, at their meeting on July 26, 2022, continued the public hearing to August 9th, due to an error of not posting the attachments (Parts 2 & 3 of the Full Environmental Assessment Form), to the posted resolution. 

The first phase of this site’s development will include the connection to Mercier Boulevard to the east, the construction of a new branch bank for Canandaigua National Bank, the construction of a Tops Fueling Station, the construction of a Mavis Tire Store, installation of pedestrian sidewalks from the southeast corner of the intersection of State Route 96 and Mertensia Road, the construction of sidewalks from Mertensia Road into and connecting to the Tops Building, the re-design of the current entrance into the plaza from State Route 96, and the installation of the Main Street Corridor improvements [streetlights, benches, trash receptacles, landscaping, etc.,] across the entire frontage of the plaza site.  

The incentive zoning process requires submission of an overall preliminary site plan for review and approval by the Town Planning Board and then the filing of said plan with the Town Clerk’s Office.  Once filed, then the Town Clerk is directed to amend the Official Zoning Map.  Once the rezoning is complete, then final site plan applications may be received and acted upon by the Planning Board for each of the proposed seven (7) commercial sites to be located within the three (3) subject parcels. 

  1. Gerstner Medical Building.  The project involves the construction of a 7,500 square foot two-story medical equipment office and sales building with associated site improvements located along the east side of Quentonshire Drive, south of County Road 41. A letter of credit still needs to be filed with the Town Clerk’s Office and then a pre-construction meeting will be scheduled.
  1. Welcome To Farmington Signs.  A joint committee comprised of Town Officials, Town staff, representatives from the Farmington Chamber of Commerce and Finger Lakes Gaming and Racing have been meeting and have chosen the design for new signage to be placed at gateway entrances to the Town welcoming people.  Five (5) of the new Welcome To Farmington signs have now been installed.

      The Town Board tonight will be accepting an easement with property owners located                   along the north side of State Route 96, near the Town’s entrance from the Town of   Manchester.  Another easement is being reviewed for the placement of the final sign to          be located on property along the south side of State Route 96, near the    Victor/Farmington Town boundary.  Meanwhile, additional welcome signs have been            prepared by Ewing Lettering & Graphics, and will be placed in other locations where     easements are not necessary.

  1. No Standing Signs, State Route 332.  The Town has been informed, by the New York State Department of Transportation, that a No Standing restriction zone will be established along both sides of State Route 332, starting at a location 1,000 feet north of the Route 96 intersection to 1,260 feet south of the intersection.  The signs are deemed necessary to eliminate ingress and egress sight restrictions being experienced by motorists which are caused by the parking of large tractor trailer vehicles along the shoulders of State Route 332 in this area. An order for the restriction signs continues to be processed for filing with the Secretary of State.  Once authorized, signs will be installed by State DOT forces as ordering and work schedules allow.
  1. TOMRA NY RECYCLING PROJECT.  Site work has commenced on this project site.  The project involves the expansion of the recycling operations at their site located at 5923 Loomis Road.  A meeting has been scheduled for this coming Wednesday afternoon with TOMRA NY representatives and Town Officials to discuss the abandonment of the existing Tomra Trail, a dead-end street that is now used only for Tomra New York Recycling Project.
  1. FEDERAL HIGHWAY TRANSPORTATION ALTERNATIVES PROGRAM (TAP) GRANT AWARD.  The Town, having learned last month that it has been awarded a TAP Grant in the amount of $1,771,200.00, to be matched with approximately $450,000.00 of local funds, has begun preparing Letters of Interest to be sent to eligible engineering firms established by the Region 4 Office of the New York State Department of Transportation.  This first part of the Grant Award Process, will enable the Town to rank, interview and select a qualified firm to prepare detailed design plans for the construction of approximately 17,000 lineal feet of five- foot-wide concrete sidewalks, construction of a pedestrian bridge crossing of Beaver Creek, installation of bike lanes and stone dust trail connections to the Auburn Trail.  Construction should be scheduled to start next year and, hopefully, be completed early in 2024.
