Baldwinsville: Boards in brief

Festivities held at Paper Mill Island, including fireworks, must end by 10 p.m. according to a revision made to the island contract.

Village officials voted to accept the earlier curfew due to increased complaints about noise levels this year and parents complaining the firework displays began too late for young children.

There can be exceptions made to the contract rules on a case by case basis.

SU students to provide plans for village site

The village is moving forward with a plan to have 24 Syracuse University students design sketches to potentially be used for the former Harrington Fire Station site. The student's instructor, Peter Crissey of Crissey Architecture, presented the board with information and examples of previous projects tackled by his former students.

"I think you will find the professionalism of the students impressive," Crissey said.

The board plans to meet with the students and Crissey before January to discuss different ideas for the area. If they proceed with plans, the board should have 24 different designs by the end of January.

Land use change sought at Radisson site

A petition was filed for a land use change at the Silverwood II site in Radisson.

The site is at the corner of Deep Glade Drive and Willett Parkway. Developers recently withdrew a petition requesting a land use change from commercial/office to multi-family after residents in the surrounding area voiced opposition to apartment buildings. Developers have now filed for a change from commercial/office to residential.

The board plans to schedule a public hearing regarding the request at the Dec. 7 board meeting.
