Community Center Update

Design work is nearing completion on the new Chili Community Center. When complete, this new facility will be the home of the Chili Senior Center, Chili Recreation, and the Chili Public Library.

Although work is taking place at the site, the Town has not yet done an official ‘ground-breaking’. Contractors are clearing trees and brush to prepare for a ground-breaking.

We will hold a public meeting to share the final designs and timelines once the design work is complete. Like many projects of this nature, there have been a few delays — but nothing major. We are looking forward to making this much-needed project a reality!

Development Around Town

Here’s what’s happening around town.

The former Kmart store is in full renovation mode. Making way for several new stores. Among those that have been disclosed to us so far: Aldi’s , Dollar Tree, Big Lots, Pet Supplies Plus, a Fitness Center, an Urgent Care and a Dance Studio.

The Development you see on Union St. at the Rail Road overpass is the future home of C&M Forwarding. C&M is a trucking and warehousing facility.

American Packaging is about 75% completed with their recent expansion of their new facility on Beaver Rd.

Taco Bell will be coming back to the Planning Board for final approval of their proposed facility on the Two Fronts Plaza (Chili-Paul).

Two new warehouse facilities have been approved, one on Aviation Ave. , one on Airline Dr. . Both located in the industrial zone.

If you would like to be more informed on development being proposed in Chili, please visit the Town web site. There you can sign up to get email notifications for all Town Board, Planning Board and Zoning Board agendas.

Town Board Agenda 1-17-18

Tonight’s Town Board meeting:

For those who looking for an update on the Incentive Zoning Application for Golden Road, we will not be considering that application on tonight’s agenda.

There are 2 Public Hearings tonight, both for inclusion in Sidewalk & Lighting district for Rose Hill Estates. If passed, once the roads are dedicated, the Town will be responsible for maintenance of the street lights and sidewalks. The residents of this subdivision will be assessed a special district tax to cover the cost.

Resolution #89 “2018 Budget adjustments – Grants” This resolution if approved would adjust the 2018 budget for grants received where the work/project has not yet been completed and will carry over into 2018. These adjustments have no effect on the tax rate.

Resolutions #90 & #91 – We are required to identify a specific use of the incentive zoning funds, of which are of a “community” benefit. The resolutions dedicate the funds to the sidewalk reserve which is and would be used for new sidewalks & sidewalk repairs. Use of reserve funds does require another resolution which would identify and approve location/s  and installation of any such amenity.

Resolution #93 – ( added after the initial release of our agenda) Our former HR & Finance assistant retired a few weeks ago. This resolution if approved will appoint Michelle Lenhart as our new HR & Finance assistant. Please join me in welcoming Michelle to our Chili team..

 

Agendas are available in advance of our meetings typically the Friday before. If you have any questions please drop in, give me a call (889-6111) of email me,  ddunning@townofchili.org

The next meeting of the Town Board will be February 14th @ 7pm…
