Highbridge & Route 5 Proposal Not Yet Approved

Residents of Village ofFayetteville:

We have been working with thedeveloper to either fix and clean up the buildings or tear them down at thecorner of Highbridge & Route 5 . We are happy to see the developer start towork on having the buildings torn down on the site in the lower village, but no approvals have been granted.  The review process with the village board,planning and zoning boards has just begun. We have to conduct several meetings,engineering reviews, SEQR &  floodplain analysis as well aspublic hearings with the village board, planning & zoning boards.

The proposed project could be agreat addition to the village, but there is still a lot of public input andinvolvement at all governmental levels that need to be reviewed before anyapprovals will be granted. We look forward to reviewing the project and workingwith all partners involved in making our village the best it can be.

Thanks, Mark

Mayor of Fayetteville



There are a couple large projects currently under consideration by the Village of Fayetteville.  

Please understand that there are several steps that each proposal must go through.  Contrary to some recent news articles, these projects below have not been given any final approval. The multi-step process involves a number of reviews by board members and by professionals (i.e. engineers) and at least one public hearing for comment by the public.  Below is a chart to show what has (not) been completed.


I-81 Viaduct Project

Regarding the I-81 Viaduct project, a chart of Estimated Travel Times was given to the mayor that he would like to share with you. Please take a moment to review the information.


Safe Routes to School Grant sidewalk project

The Village of Fayetteville received a grant for $625,000 as a recipient of the Safe Routes to School Grant through the Transportation Alternatives program. “The goal of New York's Safe Routes to School Program is to assist New York communities in developing and implementing projects and programs that encourage walking and bicycling to school while enhancing the safety of these trips.”

RE: Sidewalk Work 

The Village of Fayetteville DPW crew will begin removing sidewalks in certain areas immediately.   The village was just notified today that the contractors are ready to begin the work.

Recycling in Onondaga County

     Recycling in Onondaga County? You're probably doing it wrong.


What Global Recycling Crisis Means for Onondaga County

What the Global Recycling Crisis Means for Onondaga County

The global recycling crisis has hit home. Recycling markets are in an unprecedented free fall, especially for paper products, because China, the country processing the majority of the world’s recyclables, closed its doors to most recyclables (they were getting too much contamination).
In Onondaga County and all over the world, communities are getting less money for their recycling commodities. This means everyone is paying more for recycling and in some places they actually stopped recycling because it was too expensive.

New 211 Service in Onondaga County

Onondaga County has just gone live with 211 service.  The program is described as follows:

Locating basic resources such as food, shelter, employment, or health care may mean calling dozens of phone numbers, then struggling through amaze of agencies and services to make the right connections. The 211 system helps residents find resources by dialing a simple three-digit number.  In July 2000 the Federal Communications Commission assigned the three-digit dialing code 2-1-1 for the exclusive purpose of providing widespread access to community information and referral services.

211 CNY brings together organizations in the community to better serve the residents of five counties: Onondaga, Oswego, Jefferson, Lewis, and St. Lawrence. 211 is a helpful starting point for areas with small fragmented rural communities that may not be as connected as bigger cities. Under a simple, easy to remember, three digit phone number, updated information is kept under national standards, and the call or use of the database is free and available 24/7. “

You can dial 211 from your home phone, cell phone or our office phone (Note – you DO NOT need to dial 9 first from the office phone.)
