A citizen advisory committee for the development moratorium of the Shadow Pines/Shadow Lake properties
In early 2016, Shadow Pines/Shadow Lake were placed on the market for sale as continued golfing operations or as currently zoned, half-acre residential development.
On March 23, 2016 the Town Board adopted a moratorium on development of both properties to allow for time to study potential land uses and associated impacts on town infrastructure.
On April 6, following an open call for volunteers, the Penfield Town Board named a citizen advisory committee to identify and review all land use options for the Shadow Lake/Shadow Pines properties.
The advisory committee will report back to the Penfield Town Board with findings on possible land uses, opportunities and constraints, zoning, and how potential land uses might be supported, implemented, and funded.
The 23-person committee is made up of a cross-section of Penfield residents and representatives from the school district and the town’s historic preservation and conservation boards. Representatives from the New York State and Monroe County departments of transportation and other subject matter experts will support the group as needed.
