SMTC to hold meeting on Three Rivers study

The Syracuse Metropolitan Transportation Council is currently conducting a transportation access study for the Three Rivers Point area on behalf of the town of Clay and will hold a public meeting at 7 p.m. Wednesday Nov. 17 at Clay Town Hall, 4401 Route 31, to discuss various aspects of the project.

When complete, the study will identify potential transportation impacts associated with redevelopment of the Three Rivers Point area. As a transportation study that anticipates possible future development in the area, it will also serve as a guide for the adoption of a reuse plan for the area.

The town's Local Waterfront Revitalization Plan proposes redeveloping the Three Rivers Point Area into a mixed-use center to include housing, office space, retail space and public open space.

This access study will refine redevelopment options for the Three Rivers Point area based on the LWRP, examine access to the area, assess the impact of redevelopment on the local transportation system and, ultimately, provide the town with a guide for redeveloping this area.

The goals of this meeting are to:

n review existing conditions in the study area;

n present preliminary redevelopment concepts; and

n gather public feedback on these concepts.

This meeting is the initial public outreach for the access study.

For additional information about the project or the public meeting, or to ensure accommodation for special needs, contact the SMTC at 422-5716.
