Some thoughts on the proposed Western Gateway zoning law by a member of the legislative committee

GUEST COLUMN

Public comments on the proposed Village Gateway West zone have resulted in a much clearer and better law, now incorporating changes which attempt to alleviate many of the concerns that have been expressed — including noise, parking, protection of the lake, construction of new buildings, expansion of existing buildings and protection of historic character. I encourage everyone to take a look at the most recent draft on the village website.

Police chief proud of ‘Cops on Top’ fundraiser success

LETTER TO THE EDITOR

To the editor: I would like to take this opportunity to express just how proud I am of my officers and the community in which we serve. The recent fundraiser for “Cops on Top” at Dunkin Donuts was a heartwarming success for not only Special Olympics but for the community as well, a community that the police department is a part of. That is the attitude that all of the Cazenovia police officers take whether they live in the Cazenovia area or not, that this is their community too.

We had a record high of more than 10,000 visitors who attended the event over the weekend. The huge success of the event can be attributed to the efforts of many people and organizations throughout the community.
