During the Village of Homer’s Board of Trustees meeting on Tuesday, March 21st, the board voted to approve the funding for an architect on a linear park within the Village of Homer.
The board voted unanimously for a contract between the village and Terry Horst, Landscape Architecture, PC of Syracuse, NY. The contract total will be $9,500 dollars and will include the construction document, bidding and construction administration, stormwater pollution prevention plan, and SWPPP inspections.
The next phase for the project as Spring approaches will be further weeding and mowing of the property and removal of any debris.
The linear park will run alongside Homer Ave. just south of the Exit 12 corridor along the Tioughnioga River. The park will end right before the CNY Living History Center.
Originally, the roadway had multiple auto body shops along the roadway years ago. The Village of Homer used eminent domain to take over the properties before later demolishing them.
