.The Town of West Seneca needs to get out of the paving business This fiasco that’s been ongoing on Cranwood, it just reaffirms that there is nothing the government can do cheaper than private business. This paving has been going on for weeks. It’s absolutely ridiculous.
.I thought the purpose of a modified sports team in school was so the children could learn to play the game better, being taught by the coaches on how to improve their skills for the JV and varsity programs. How can this be done when you have coaches who don’t even know how to coach a team? It’s ridiculous how the sports programs in the school district are run. Yo u ’re paying teachers for this, and they’re not even teaching the children anything. You could have volunteers that would do it for free, and it would be much better for the program.
.I have been a resident of West Seneca for 60 years. Actually, it was called Ebenezer. I currently live in a West Seneca senior apartment. I worked in West Seneca for over 60 years, owned a home and paid taxes. I do not believe that just baby boomers should enjoy their retirement. Seniors should, too. Not all baby boomers, because of our current economy, will be able to afford town homes or patio homes. A certain small group of people around the Houghton College area do not have the say in who should build in that area. It is not just your town; it is our town, too.
. From the Dec 21, 2005, West Seneca Planning Board meeting, the next town Supervisor Wally Piotrowski, a town judge at the time, was in opposition of Young Development building a 40-unit apartment complex on Seneca Street, which is near Wally’s home, and he suggested that Mr. Young find a location that is zoned properly. His father, Wallace Piotrowski,
New York State real estate appraiser, stated that the town was saturated with apartments and commented at the number of vacancies in other complexes in town. He thought that adding this size complex in an area that was not suitable would diminish the value of properties in the area. Funny, not OK in their neighborhood, but OK for the Houghton College neighborhood?
