L.L. Bean has ‘big plans’ for Cazenovia Outdoor Discovery School

Snowshoeing classes expected to begin this winter

— “They’re very pleased with Cazenovia and they want to stay,” Joseph told the board.

Joseph also told the board that L.L. Bean will store its kayak trailer in the barn throughout the winter, and will pay a $500 rental fee for using the space.

Also at the meeting, the board:

—Scheduled two public hearings to precede its Dec. 2 regular meeting: One at 6:55 p.m. to discuss the progress of the Village Edge South draft design guidelines and zoning, and the other for 7 p.m. to discuss revisions to the village code to update the Lakeland Park use regulations.

—Stated that the public boat launch and the public restrooms at Lakeland and Lakeside parks are closed for the season.

—Heard from Village Police Chief Michael Hayes that that “Exercise Stalker” case is still ongoing and the police have a suspect identified who is also connected to two of the vehicles reported in the numerous incidents. “The individual is reluctant to sit down with us — but he will be sitting down with us,” Hayes told the board. He also said the village police department has a new Facebook page now up and running.

—Heard from village Public Works Administrator Bill Carr that brush and leaf pickup in the village officially ended on Nov. 7, but village crews will continue leaf pickup as long as weather permits.

—Heard from Village Attorney Jim Stokes that Susan Light has withdrawn her application for a zone change for her property at 8 Farnham St. in order to create her food-related business. Stokes advised the board that despite Light’s action, the board could still move forward on the previously proposed action for the house at 6 Farnham St., which the village owns and intends to raze in order to create more parking for the Cazenovia Fire Department. The village had tied zone change requests for the two separate properties into one resolution because they were related actions. Mayor Kurt Wheeler agreed with Stokesand said the village should move forward with the 6 Farnham St. project. He said the proposal would be added to the board’s Dec. 2 meeting agenda.
