Village Update December 31, 2019

I apologize for the length of time between these updates. Life has a way of taking over from time to time. As of 8 am this morning the outflows have been increased to 10,000 cm/s. This has occurred as the shipping season has ended. While this will help remove some water, it is also further evidence that our future is being controlled by the shipping industry. I expect we will see further...

Village Update – January 10, 2020

I hope everyone had a happy and successful New Year celebration!  2020 will be an exciting year for the village.  On January 18th, the local Rotary’s will be hosting a WinterFest in the village.  There are many activities planned for all ages, several vendors will be in the village.  At 11 am that morning, the grand opening of the Macyville Woods Nature Preserve will be held followed by a guided walk through the preserve.  From 10-12 that morning there will be an open house in the Village Hall for people to learn more about the Storm Water Project on Wickham Blvd and Greig St.  The most recent plans will be on display and representatives from Costich Engineering and the village will be on hand to listen to suggestions.

We will also begin to broadcast our board meetings each month.  You can access them at:  /live/  The first time you use the link you will be asked to download a brief application to support Zoom meetings.  Our meeting this month is January 16th at 6:30 pm.

All of our REDI projects are on target to have the Engineering Report completed by the February 15th deadline for the state.  This is the document that will trigger the contracts with NYS for the actual monies for each project.  All of our projects are still at the conceptual stage and will begin to move to 50% design in the next 60 days.  At this time, it appears that permitting of each of the projects will take place in the Spring, followed by construction bidding in the Summer with construction anticipated in the Fall.

The survey work for the White Birch project is wrapping up.  Additional information has been requested from the state engineer’s regarding access to the site.  A preliminary design will be completed in a month or so and shared with the White Birch Association for comment.  This entire project other than the site access will take place on White Birch Association property.

The survey work for the Lakestones project is complete.  Analysis of how the shoreline has changed over the last 10 years is underway.  That work will help inform the engineers on where to best place the revetment.  A preliminary design is expected to be shared with impacted residents by the end of next month.

Work on the Beach Dune project is focused on getting core samples from possible sand source sites and analyzing the changes to the beach over the last few years.  Since we have no ice cover, the changes in the last few weeks are significant.  We are working with the Lakeview Neighborhood Association to put together a group to participate in the design of this project.  That will likely convene electronically sometime next month.

The stormwater project will hold an open house for all interested residents on Saturday, January 18th from 10-12.  It will be an informal meeting with various stations set up to show ideas, answer questions and receive comments and suggestions.  The materials used at the open house will be posted to our web site for those not present to see.  The survey work is complete, the base map is nearly complete and the next step is to review the topography across the entire area.  The most significant change that has occurred since we first presented this project is a likely move to electric pumps, similar to our wastewater system.  That eliminates the need for ‘cottages’ at each location and minimizes the footprint needed for each station and saves money.

I know that many of you have been turned down for breakwall remediation projects.  Our voices have been heard and it is my understanding that this is being revisited in Albany.  Securing our perimeter is vital to our ability to keep the streets dry and we have made that well known.  I am optimistic we will see some movement soon.

Clearly our water levels remain high and we have significant rain coming this weekend.  Hopefully, it remains warm enough to keep the outflows above 10,000 cm/s.  We can’t seem to get below 246, though it looks like we will get there by the weekend.   Making our voices heard in Washington is the best thing we can do at the moment.
