Van Buren officials approved a local law banning parking along Sun Meadows Way from Downer Street to the 84 Lumber parking exit.
The request for the ban came after the town codes officer had submitted several complaints regarding large vehicles (tractor-trailers) and passenger vehicles parking along Sun Meadows Way to access area businesses. The parked vehicles made it difficult for travelers to navigate the roadway, especially those exiting 84 Lumber. Van Buren Highway Superintendent Ed Parks also said it created a stress on the road causing the black top to crumble at the road's edge.
Property deemed unsafe
The village codes officer received a memo that the property at 3 to 9 West Genesee St., which was damaged in August of 2007 by a fire, was deemed unsafe. The village board approved an inspection of the property by the codes officer and an independent structural engineer.
