The Town of Geddes and Village of Solvay are soliciting proposals from qualified consulting firms to prepare a Joint Comprehensive Plan for the Town and Village. The Town Board and Village Trustees believe it best to utilize an independent planning organization or firm to ensure that the planning process remains objective, fair and credible in the eyes of the public. There are three established communities within the Town: the Westvale area south of the Village of Solvay, the Village of Solvay itself and the Lakeland area north of the village. The community is home to a number of large facilities and major infrastructure that are owned and operated by other jurisdictions. These include the NYS State Fairgrounds and Onondaga County Lakeview Amphitheater complex, Interstate 690, West Genesee Street/State Route 5, John Glenn Boulevard, and other primary transportation corridors. The purpose of this joint comprehensive plan is to guide municipal decision-making processes in both the Town and Village for the next 10-15 years. It will assess opportunities and constraints for future growth and development that is orderly, context-sensitive, and tax-productive. It should help to protect the positive elements of our community that are unique, while also helping to improve programmatic and infrastructural connections between the town's three distinct communities.
