Masse Gateway Project up for council vote Monday
Three resolutions enabling Batavia to apply for a RestoreNY grant for the Masse Gateway Project are on the agenda of the City Council on Monday.
The council meets in a special business session to consider the resolutions at 7 p.m.
There is no public comment time scheduled on the agenda of this meeting.
The resolutions authorize the application to RestoreNY, provide for a municipal expense match for the project, and designate the city as the lead agency.
Following the special business session, the council will meet to consider several other items. Among the items on the agenda:
- Batavia Minor League baseball wants to build new restrooms at its facility at MacArthur Park. This would reqire the league to raise funds to build the restrooms, but since the land is owned by the city, the league will be required to donate the restrooms to the city once they are completed. The council will consider a resolution authorizing the project and accepting the donation.
- There is concern that the Bank Street cross walk isn't safe enough, especially for older people going to and from the senior services center on Bank. The council will consider three low-cost options for improving safety at the cross walk, including repainting the cross walk, adding removable "rumble strips" that remind drivers to slow down, and installing a no left turn sign for drivers coming from the YMCA parking lot.
