Skaneateles: Town receives updated western gateway plans

Skaneateles Town Supervisor Terri Roney said the board has received updated plans for the western gateway project and property owner concerns are being addressed.

The Skaneateles Gateway West Highway Corridor Improvement Project for Route 20 is meant to beautify the west entrance to Skaneateles and also make that end of the community more walkable. The design is also meant to make the corridor safer for pedestrians and motorists.

The project extends from the town line to Fuller Street.

"By the next meeting it would be nice to have a game plan," Roney said.

Councilor Rock Keyes said he would meet with residents by the town's next meeting.

Town chooses new logo

The board voted on a new logo -- one that does not include a teasel.

The design, created by Chase Design, depicts a sailboat on the lake with hills in the background. It was selected from several designs the board has been taking into consideration.

According to Councilor Nancy Murray, the town had been playing around with the idea of a new logo and choosing a design for almost two years and it was time to "get the show on the road," she said.

The logo will be used on town vehicles among other things.

Town seeks 'Recreation Advisory Committee'

The town board is asking for volunteers to sit on a Recreation Advisory Committee.

This committee would study recreational needs of the community that could be supported through the Town of Skaneateles Recreation Department. This committee would explore recreation separate from the Skaneateles Community Center activities.

The town board is looking for representatives from all walks of life and from all parts of the community.

Submit letters of interest to the Town of Skaneateles at 24 Jordan St., Skaneateles, NY 13152 or e-mail them to town Clerk Janet Aaron at jaaron@townofskaneateles.com.

Hamlet meeting is May 13

The Skaneateles Town Board has scheduled a hamlet meeting for 7 p.m. Thursday May 13 and the Mottville Fire Department on Frost Street in Mottville. Roney said there will be an open agenda to hear what residents in Mottville want to talk about.

The Department of Environmental Conservation has not gotten back in touch with the town regarding an update on the Stauffer Chemical cleanup.
