This morning’s Happening in Homer segment featured a shortened version of Vinnie Bellardini’s interview with Mayor Hal McCabe, who shared his vision and plans for the village, including some exciting things in the works in both the near and far futures.
Below is the full 17-minute conversation, in which McCabe discusses recent accomplishments like the reconstruction of the basketball court behind the fire department, as well as the Newton Park playground – which was completed just this past weekend (see more on Newton Park here).
McCabe also said the village is in the process of making a five-year plan and revising its long-term comprehensive plan.
Developments large and small along Route 11 are expected to break ground in the coming years, with the most immediate being a new 40-condo plan that’s based on a project started decades ago but never completed.
