The Village of Penn Yan received funding from the Genesee Transportation Council for a Circulation, Accessibility, and Parking (CAP) study. Penn Yan established a steering committee comprised of Village officials, key stakeholders, and community members to guide the CAP process and has been working with a consultant team led by Ingalls Planning & Design from Fairport.

This CAP Study is providing the Village with the opportunity to focus solely on the issues of character, access, connectivity, and parking that constrict development and livability in Penn Yan. The objectives of this CAP Study include:

•  Enhance the livability, mobility, and identity of the village to create a stronger sense of place;

•  Improve safety, access, and connectivity for all modes of travel into the village and within major activity centers;

•  Preserve and enhance the village’s historic character and walkability of the downtown core;

•  Foster additional economic development opportunities by increasing multi-modal access and addressing downtown parking needs and alternatives; and

•  Identify opportunities to capitalize on connections to recreational trails and the waterfront.

The drop-in style community meeting will be held from 5 to 7 p.m. Nov. 7 at the Penn Yan Academy, 305 Court St, Penn Yan.

The purpose of the meeting is to review draft recommendations to improve circulation, accessibility and parking, and to celebrate the efforts of community members who have participated in developing the nearly complete study. Community members are welcome to attend the meeting to review project information, talk with the project team, and provide feedback on draft recommendations.

The meeting is open to the public. It is a drop-in style meeting and will not include a formal presentation.

Community members can drop in anytime between 5 and 7 p.m.
