Celoron Schedules Hearing On Paper Streets

CELORON- There will be two public hearings Monday in Celoron.

The first, which will begin at 6:45 p.m., will consider the abandonment of Walton Avenue south of Boulevard Avenue and the alleyways and carriage ways connected to the avenues. These paper streets have been abandoned for 10-12 years, and Holiday Harbor Marina is interested in obtaining the land. The marina will be paying for filing costs, so there will be no cost to the taxpayers. There will also be a public hearing at 6:55 p.m. for Local Law No. 4 of 2013. This law would provide for the codification of the local laws, ordinances and certain resolutions of the village into a municipal code to be designated as the “Code of the Village of Celoron.”
