Message from the Supervisor: Public Referendum Dates for Shadow Pines

As was previously noted last week a resident petition was submitted to the Town of Penfield on December 20, 2017 calling for a Public Referendum on the Town’s intended purchase of the Shadow Pines golf course property from Dolomite/Oldcastle.

There was a five day period following the filing of the petition during which time the petition could be reviewed and an objection could be filed. No objection was received by the deadline of Tuesday, December 26, 2017 at 5:00 PM. 

Legal procedure requires the Penfield Town Board to hold a Public Referendum as called for in the petition no less than 60 days, and no more than 75 days, from the filing of the petition. This means the vote would need to fall between February 18 and March 5.

As of today, December 29, the Town and the Seller have a signed Letter of Intent and continue good faith negotiations for a Purchase and Sales Agreement acceptable to both parties.

I will share further updates as more details become available.

A Message from the Supervisor: Town collecting written communication regarding signatures

Since receiving a petition on December 20, 2017 calling for a Public Referendum on the Town’s intended purchase of the Shadow Pines golf course property from Dolomite/Oldcastle, the Town has received some requests from residents who signed the petition to remove their signatures for various reasons.  

The Town has no legal authority to alter a filed petition and therefore cannot remove any person’s signature from the Shadow Pines Public Referendum petition, even upon request.  

However, the Town is offering to be a repository for collecting any written communications expressing a desire to have signatures removed from the petition. The Town will add the letters to the Town Clerk’s Shadow Pines Public Referendum petition file, for review by any interested party. Questions should be directed to the Town Clerk at 340-8629.

A Message from the Supervisor: Public Referendum Petition was submitted

A resident petition was submitted to the Town of Penfield on December 20, 2017 calling for a Public Referendum on the Town’s intended purchase of the Shadow Pines golf course property from Dolomite/Oldcastle. The minimum number of signatures required to hold a Public referendum was 685; the petition was filed with 1,133 signatures. The petition was submitted in response to the Town’s November 20, 2017 Permissive Referendum to finance the purchase of Shadow Pines.

Legal procedure requires the Penfield Town Board to hold a Public Referendum as called for in the petition no less than 60 days, and no more than 75 days, from the filing of the petition. Therefore, the projected date for a Public Referendum is on or about February 27, provided a Purchase and Sales Agreement is accepted by both parties.

There is a five day period following the filing of the petition during which time the petition is available for review in the Town Clerk’s office, ending Tuesday, December 26, 2017 at 5:00 PM. 

As of today, December 21, the Town and the seller have a Letter of Intent and continue negotiations for a Purchase and Sales Agreement.

Penfield Town Board to hold press conference to provide timeline regarding efforts to purchase Shadow Pines property

PENFIELD, N.Y., DECEMBER 5, 2017 – The Penfield Town Board will hold a press conference on Wednesday, December 6 at 11:00 AM in the Penfield Town Hall auditorium (3100 Atlantic Avenue, Penfield, NY 14526) to provide a detailed timeline of events in the Town of Penfield’s efforts to purchase the Shadow Pines property from Dolomite/Oldcastle.

The Town Board is providing this information to clarify steps the Town has taken to date to purchase the Shadow Pines golf course property from Dolomite, supporting the Moratorium Committee’s recommendation to purchase the property in September 2016.

The timeline identifies key milestones and communications between the Town and Dolomite, and demonstrates how the timing of critical steps unfolded in a way that led to the Town Board’s recent decision to finance the purchase by Permissive Referendum—rather than by an up or down vote through Public Referendum—as the most likely successful purchase option acceptable to Dolomite given Penfield’s legal requirements and Dolomite’s stated firm closing deadline.

The timeline will be posted on the project page of the Town’s website following the press conference (link below).

Supporting documents are available upon request.
