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.
