Athletic Fields Improvement Project Update

Posted: 
January 21, 2014

The Town of Pittsford is moving to the next phase in considering a proposed Athletic Fields Improvement Project; the Town Council has agreed to oversee the New York State Environmental Quality Review (SEQR) required to further consider the project and, along with Town staff, is working with project engineer LaBella Associates to update the initial concept plan. Once a final preliminary plan has been developed, it will be reviewed by the Town’s Planning Board, Environmental Board, and Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, as well as by Town staff members, and will then be available online and presented to the public in a series of public meetings for public input and comment. The public input meetings are expected to be held this spring. A summary of the Athletic Fields Improvement Project’s current Concept Plan and concept drawings of potential field improvements are available on the Town website homepage or at Pittsford Town Hall, 11 South Main Street.

The Town of Pittsford’s Athletic Fields Improvement Project was proposed to support the Town’s commitment to provide high quality athletic facilities and allow for increased access to playing fields for youth and adults throughout the community. Preliminary development of the project included input from the various community youth sports and other groups currently using the Town’s athletic fields as well as from the Pittsford Central School District.

The plan was developed after an assessment of current Town athletic fields and facilities indicated a need for various field improvements, including improved handicapped accessibility, and a greater demand for field usage by community members than can currently be met. The project includes proposed improvements to athletic fields at the Town’s Great Embankment Park (631 Marsh Road), Thornell Farm Park (480 Mendon Road) and Hopkins Park (5 Barker Road) and new fields at the Town’s Willard Road property. The proposed improvements include the construction or reconfiguration of athletic fields, playgrounds, parking areas, sidewalks, drainage and restrooms as well as increased handicapped accessibility.

PITTSFORD COMMUNITY COLLABORATION TASK FORCE REPORT RELEASED

Posted: 
July 14, 2013

The Pittsford Collaborative Leadership Team has released a report by the Pittsford Community Collaboration (PCC) Task Force identifying current collaborative efforts and recommending future opportunities for collaboration among Pittsford’s Town, School District and Village.

The report

includes a variety of recommendations for further collaborative opportunities between the Town, School District and Village; the Executive Summary includes an overview of the recommendations made in each of five (5) areas. The full report made by the PCC Task Force provides background information and more detail on current and suggested collaborative efforts.

The members of the Pittsford Collaborative Leadership Team at the time – former Pittsford Town Supervisor Bill Carpenter, former Pittsford Central School District Superintendent Mary Alice Price and Pittsford Village Mayor Bob Corby – charged the PCC Task Force with finding additional opportunities for collaboration between the three entities and were pleased with the level of effort and professionalism exhibited by the task force and the thoroughness of the report.

“With so many current examples of collaboration, the Task Force members had to work diligently to find additional opportunities that were truly viable for our community and they did an excellent job” said Supervisor Zutes.

Mayor Corby agreed. "The task force members volunteered a great deal of personal time, effort, and research. The Leadership Team will carefully evaluate the report's recommendations to see if they can help each of us better achieve our respective missions” he said.

“The report is very thorough and well organized,” added Superintendent Pero. “It will serve as a valuable tool and help us raise our collaborative efforts to the next level.”

The PCC Task Force was appointed in October, 2011 by the Pittsford Collaborative Leadership Team. Task Force members (see list below) were selected from a community-wide pool of applicants. Two representatives each from the town, village and district also sat on the committee as liaisons.

The Pittsford Community Collaboration Task Force was established by the Pittsford Collaborative Leadership Team, a group comprised of Pittsford town, village and school district officials with a shared mission to determine areas in which the three entities can share resources and collaborate for “the betterment of all who live, work, play and learn in the Pittsford community” while continuing to achieve the mission and goals of each entity.
