At the request of residents who are seeking impartial information to help them make an informed decision when voting February 27 on two bond propositions to finance the Town’s acquisition of the former Shadow Pines Golf Club property, Supervisor Tony LaFountain will hold a Public Information Meeting on Tuesday, February 13, 2018 at 7:00 PM in the Town Hall auditorium, 3100 Atlantic Avenue.
The presentation will include an overview of the history from when Shadow Pines ceased golf operations in December 2015 up to February 2018; voting information including a review of the two propositions, who is eligible to vote, and absentee ballots; financing and costs to taxpayers; and potential short- and long-term future uses of the property. Maps of the property and ballot information will be on display for everyone to review.
“I have heard from residents who are new to the topic of Shadow Pines and would like to get up to speed before the public referendum on February 27th,” said Supervisor LaFountain. “We have provided a lot of information about the Shadows Pines property on the Town website over the course of this project. It’s a great place to stay current with this topic and many more. A public information meeting will further help to educate residents and give them an opportunity to ask specific questions to help them make an informed vote on February 27th.”
Specific questions may be submitted ahead of the meeting by going to www.penfield.org/Golf_The_Shadows.php . Questions will also be taken at the meeting following the presentation.
