Geneva seeks input regarding Pulteney Street options

GENEVA SEEKS RESIDENT INPUT REGARDING PULTENEY STREET The City of Geneva is seeking resident input regarding two options for Pulteney Street. Residents are being asked to evaluate the options and to complete a short, three question survey online and to participate in the public forum on March 30, 2015. The City of Geneva is requesting the evaluation and input from residents of the following two options regarding the reconstruction a/o closure of Pulteney Street. The first option states that the City of Geneva is preparing for the reconstruction of Pulteney Street between Hamilton Street and Jay Street in the South Lake Neighborhood. The project will entail reconstruction of water, sewer, and drainage utilities, pedestrian facilities including crosswalks and sidewalks, and restored pavement condition. The total project cost is $3.25 million, which the City is prepared to bond for. The second option that the City is evaluating is a concept whereby Hobart and William Smith Colleges contributes $1,250,000 to the reconstruction project. Under this scenario, the roadway between Performing Arts Center and St. Clair Street would be closed to through traffic. Emergency vehicles would still be permitted access. Hobart and William Smith Colleges would maintain the portion of the roadway that is closed to traffic and the City would not be responsible for plowing, pavement condition maintenance, or other maintenance activities along this section of road. The survey can be found located at Geneva Survey and will be closed on March 26, 2015. There will be a public forum held at the Geneva Neighborhood Resource Center on Monday, March 30, 2015 from 6-7 p.m. where the survey results will be shared and an open dialogue can take place.
