Dear Town of Richmond Residents,
The Richmond Town Board has established a Comprehensive Plan Review committee. The next time they meet is Thursday, July 12th, 5pm to 6:30 at the Honeoye Library. (Please park on the street or at Town Hall). All meetings are open to the public. If you would like to be involved in some way please let me know at email@example.com. An important part of this process will be a community survey. Make sure we get your input. Some of the work to be done will address Code and Zoning concerns along with a Master Plan for our Parks, Sandy Bottom Beach, Trail System and Sandy Bottom East Lake Rd Park (3-M) along with Economic Development, Tourism and Housing concerns. There is a good deal of great research, and a large amount of work to be done. Please come out and get involved.
The Town Board is thankful for two Eagle Scout projects. Thanks to Eagle Scout candidate Robie Ungar, we have a new Kiosk at Sandy Bottom Park and we need suggestions as to what should be displayed there among the suggestions of pamphlets and maps. Noah Guffey led a team that stabilized, straightened, repaired and painted the gorgeous wrought iron fence at Curtis & Purcell Hill Cemetery.
Due to the infestation of the Ash Borer Beetle in our ash trees at Sandy Bottom Park, the Parks and Recreation Committee has been busy orchestrating the inoculation of a few Ash trees for shade on beach and near the Sandy Bottom trailhead as well as exploring avenues to remove other Ash trees before they become dangerous. The committee is looking into both the Re-leaf grants with in the DEC and Urban Forestry grants to assist with complicated task of getting dying ash trees out of the Park’s wetland. They are also putting together a “Friends of the Park” not-for-profit to assist this committee. Both this committee and the new Board could use more members. Parks and Recreation meet the first Monday of each month at the Town Hall 6:30 pm. All meetings are open to the public. Send me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have some time to dedicate to our parks system here in the community.
Sandy Bottom Beach is open for swimming and pavilion rentals. Swimming hours are 11 am to 7:30 pm. Please check out all of the recreation programs on our website www.townofrichmond.org. Fireworks will begin at dusk on July 3. Don’t forget about the Ring of Fire; flares are available at the Richmond Firehall. There is a parade on Main St. at 11 am on the 4th. If you want to be in the parade they are gathering at the Honeoye United Church of Christ. The Honeoye Community Band will play at the Gazebo at noon.
