Pooler Development has proposed an alternative access to Meigs Road from the Sun Meadows Development.
Sun Meadows, which currently has one access road along Downer Street, requires a second access if the developer is to sell all the lots for homes. Previously, Pooler requested an access road that connected to Meigs at a 90-degree angle near the Golden Legacy apartments. However, the proposal did not meet village needs. The proposed alternative connects to Meigs Road near the southern part, which dead ends before Interstate 690 near Syracuse Home. If permitted access by the village, the developer proposed contributing $65,000 to the village for improvements to Meigs Road.
"As proposed, I don't have any major problems," said Village Engineer Tim Baker. "It has a reasonable connection."
Pooler officials said the increase in traffic from the development would not require additional improvements to Meigs or the intersection of Meigs and Downer Street.
Village officials wanted to hear input from residents along Meigs Road and have scheduled an informational meeting during this Thursday's board meeting, which begins at 7:30 p.m. at the village hall, 16 E. Genesee St. in Baldwinsville.
Keep sidewalks clear
After speaking with a resident that is having difficulty using village sidewalks due to snow, Mayor Joe Saraceni asked residents to please try and keep sidewalks clear, especially with the growing number of people in wheelchairs and scooters using the sidewalks.
Public safety meeting
The village public safety meeting will be held at 5 p.m. Wednesday Jan. 21 at the Baldwinsville Police Department conference room.
