NEWS BRIEFS FOR THE LAKE COMMUNITY . . .
Tuesday, April 25, 2017
In an email dated April 22, 2017, resident Greg Franklin wrote to individual members of the Long Range Planning Committee (LRPC) to poll them about Ames Avenue becoming an official LRPC project. "My purpose in writing is to ask if the Long Range Planning Committee is the place for this seed to be planted," he wrote.
"We really do need to get people away from the path of cars and trucks at the most curvy and dangerous portion of Perry Avenue. Now that I have the full view of walkers on Perry Avenue, I have personally seen the very dangerous conditions and even close calls--especially when two cars in both directions encounter walkers," Mr. Franklin continued.
Although I am immensely enthused about the Pedestrian Walkway, I am only one person among many. We need each other and each others' ideas and thoughts," Mr. Franklin concluded. Within less than 48 hours he had positive responses from four of the six persons to whom he had written indicating they would support the project becoming an official LRPC project.
The full text of the email follows under "Read More."

Current Customers of the Silver Lake Water District will Automatically be Connected to New Water System
Silver Lake Water District customers received a "Newsletter" dated March 21, 2017, in their last water bill. It seemed to be explaining what water customers were going to have to do in order to be hooked into the new pressurized water system and it seemed to involve a whole new connection between the road right-of-way and our individual buildings, homes, or cottages. Something didn't seem quite right about that since we already had a water connection in good working order.
So it was time to place a call to our man, Jake Koch, of the Town of Castile Water/Sewer Department to see if he could provide clarity--which he did without hesitation nor confusion. Mr. Koch indicated that current customers probably should not have been sent that particular "Newsletter" because it was describing the procedures that new/future customers were going to have to do in order to begin receiving water service from the new system.
As for the current water customers, there is nothing that we have to do in this process. We will begin receiving higher pressurized water when the system is completed and implemented without having to do anything. That means no applications, no white flags, no inspections, no running new pipe between the road right-of-way and the privately owned buildings. The only thing we need to be aware of is that our water will rush more forcefully through our pipes and into our sinks. It sounds like it will be possible to turn the value only part way open in order to get an adequate force of pressure with the new system.
Thank you, Town of Castile Board and Water Department! We are really looking forward to this! Any additional questions may also be directed to Jake Koch at (585) 727-2569.

For all the private roads in the Silver Lake Institute, the Speed Limit is simple. It's 15 mph. But look at the potpourri we have on our public roads that both surround the Institute and plow through the center of it. Chapman is 25 mph. Camp and Walker are 30 mph.
Here's one for the books: Perry Ave.--going South--is 15 mph. Perry Ave.--going North--is 20 mph. Now add 5 to 10 mph onto the Perry Ave. speed limits to get the actual speed of vehicles. This does not take into account those who are clearly traveling much faster and those not stopping at stop signs.

SILVER LAKE — The Silver Lake Association is encouraging attendance at its next public meeting. The group will host an event titled “Planning, Funding, and Executing Public Projects: A Discussion with Government Agencies and Community Groups about Silver Lake, N.Y.” It’s set for 9 to 10 a.m. on May 13 at the Club at Silver Lake. The goal is to address issues at Silver Lake and find ways they can be tackled.
“Were just hoping to get people excited about all the different things that people are working to do,” said Kelly Paganelli an SLA member. “We were hoping to continue a discussion about what governments and communities can do working together to get some changes going.” The group specifically hopes to address including dredging of the lake, promoting native species planting and generally keeping the water healthy.
“We’re trying to do all of those things and I think it’s going to take a lot of us doing a lot of little things, and hopefully we’ll make a difference,” Paganelli said. The event will be moderated by Andrea Locke of the Western New York Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management. It will feature Frank Bright, a Professor at the University at Buffalo and co-chair of the SLA Water Quality committee.
Other featured speakers will include Jacquie Billings, a Village of Perry trustee and owner of the Hole in the Wall restaurant; Brittney Roggers of the New York Sea Grant; and John Whitney, a USDA district conservationist.
Each presenter will give a five minute presentation on projects between governments, community organization and private citizens. Paganelli said that the SLA will present the information again at a later date at the Charcoal Corral for those who could not attend this meeting.
The event is free. Send an RSVP to: email@example.com. For more information, contact Paganelli at (585) 624-7805.
