Where We Live: Lancaster


The Lancaster Village Board has a special meeting at 7 p.m. Monday to hold a public hearing on possible Community Development Block Grant projects. The board meets in the Municipal Building, 5423 Broadway.

A possible consideration might be to extend improvements to sidewalks and curbing one block north of the Central Avenue business district between Pleasant Avenue and St. Joseph’s Street. The idea would be for the improvements to resemble the sidewalks and pavers in the hub of the business district.

Also this week:

• The Lancaster Town Board meets at 6:30 p.m. in a work session Monday, followed by its regular business meeting at 7 p.m. in Town Hall, 21 Central Ave.

During the work session, board members are expected to discuss how the old Gipple cabin – built in 1803 and believed to be the oldest log cabin in Western New York – would be moved to the Hull House historic home on Genesee Street. The cabin, in great disrepair and which had been buried in tree overgrowth until recently, is located at the intersection of Harris Hill Road and Wehrle Drive. The Hull House Foundation is trying to restore the cabin and is interested in having the town help move it to its Genesee Street site before winter settles in.

The board also is expected to set a public hearing for Supervisor Dino J. Fudoli’s preliminary 2014 budget.

The board also will consider a resolution calling for the approval of 22 proposed single family homes as part of Hidden Pines Subdivision Phase II, located on the east side of Aurora Street across from Running Brook Drive.
