A public hearing regarding the installation of a 3-way stop at the intersection of Hooker Ave. and Sunset Drive within the Village of Homer is expected to take place towards the end of March. The Village Board of Trustees voted unanimously last night to move the process forward for the public hearing.


The process to install a 3-way stop kicked off when the village sent out a questionnaire back in March of 2023. Questions included if the resident felt the need for a stop sign, and any concerns. Homer Police Chief Robert Pitman says overall it is a safety concern, noting there are no sidewalks in that area and pedestrians are walking along the side of the roadway.

During a Board of Trustees meeting back in August Mayor McCabe did note a majority of the residents who participated in the questionnaire were in favor of the 3-way stop sign. Board of Trustee, Ed Finkbeiner spoke last night saying in total, the village received 25 responses with 16 in favor for the stop signs and 9 against.

Last nights board of trustees meeting also brought up the suggestion of the new stop signs to have flashing lights by DPW Superintendent, Phil Stockton. It would be similar to those on Gracey road in Cortlandville.

X101 will announce the public hearing date once official.
