Where we live: Grand Island

Grand Island

A public hearing on the controversial proposal to ban hunting and animal trapping in town parks will be held during the Town Board meeting at 8 p.m. Monday in Town Hall, 2255 Baseline Road. The proposal also would limit trapping on other town-owned property.

A second public hearing Monday evening will consider a proposal to amend the development concept plan for townhouses in the Gun Creek Planned Development District off Whitehaven Road. Previous proposals have raised concerns about traffic congestion.

This week:
