Today Penfield DPW began work on the LaSalle’s Landing Park improvement project. THERE IS NO PUBLIC ACCESS TO THE PARK DURING CONSTRUCTION. We are expanding the parking lot, modifying the driveway, and improving launch access for canoes and kayaks. We expect the project to continue all week. Long-term plans for this park include adding a small building with restrooms and a bit of shelter as funding becomes available through some combination of budgeting and grants.
If you’ve traveled Baird Road you may have noticed roofing materials staged at the Penfield Community Center. Work will soon begin to replace the roof over the gymnasium area. This is year three of a four-year project to replace the entire community center roof. It’s a big project so we have spread the cost over four budget cycles. We expect this year’s work to be wrapped up by mid-July. The last stage of the roof replacement is planned for 2021.
