Clay releases study of lands north of Route 31

- Three Rivers, including the Three Rivers site and bounded by Route 481, Route 31, the Seneca River and the Oneida River;

- Caughdenoy, bounded by the Oneida River and the Erie Canal and including Lock 23;

- Orangeport, bounded by the Erie Canal, the Oneida River, the Cicero town border, Mud Mill Road and Caughdenoy Road;

- Ver Plank, bounded by Oak Orchard Road, the Clay Industrial Park, Route 31 and Morgan Road;

- Clay Industrial Park, including the park itself and bounded by Mud Mill Road, the Cicero town border and Route 31;

- Maple Road, bounded by Route 31, the CSX railroad tracks and Route 481; and

- Cherry Estates, bouned by Route 31, Route 481, the Cicero border and the CSX railroad tracks.

The study examined land features that would limit development in all nine areas (wetlands, flood plains and soil suitability for septic systems) and facilities supporting development (public sewer systems, public water service and existing highways). Based upon that data, the study offers recommendations for how each of the nine areas should be developed.

There are several existing development proposals within the study area. The study will be used to determine how to best proceed with these developments. The town hopes the study will help to create development which will ease traffic, promote circulation within and between future neighborhoods and aid in economic development.

To see the study, contact the town at 652-3800 or visit their website at townofclay.org.
