New seasons in Fayetteville

To the editor:

When the people of Fayetteville honored me with my election as mayor, the most common commentary regarded the quality and nature of our small but vibrant community. That sense of pride and interest continues today and is showing some of its strongest signs right now as we go into another beautiful Central New York summer.

The flowers decorating our main street have never looked better and because of the dedicated work of many volunteers, this amenity has grown in numbers and placements. It looks like a small thing in practice and yet it is a big benefit to our village beauty.

This past month, we inaugurated our newly renovated fire station. It is up and running and running quite well. Though much different in scope than its predecessor, the design and construction fits in well with the village and will be a strong and attractive presence on that corner for decades to come.

On Friday June 10, we will open Canal Landing Park. We know how long and winding this road has been but now we will have a chance to enjoy an entirely new open, public space that creates a wonderful recreational opportunity.

On Friday June 17, we will mark the completion of the Safe Routes to School Sidewalks. That project will allow our children to travel to and from school in the safest possible manner and open up the village for patrons to shop, visit restaurants or just plain visit neighbors.

All these additions to the village take work, commitment and help from many sources. Federal and state grants paid for 100 percent of the sidewalk cost and 80 percent of the Canal Park project. Volunteers lead and staff the fire station along with committed career firefighters. Village employees labor, day in and day out, in a friendly and helpful manner. We are fortunate to have trustees who recognize the importance of efforts like these and who work tirelessly to see them through.
