Earthen Embankment Integrity Program Meeting Schedule

The Canal Corporation announced several public meetings on their Earthen Embankment Integrity Program (EEIP) to be hosted in the Town of Perinton.

Statement from Supervisor Ciaran Hanna: “We are pleased that the Canal Corporation and NYPA heeded requests from the Town and our residents for a community approach to this project. We hope these public meetings will give us a full scope of the project and provide all of our residents, especially those property owners along the Canal, an opportunity for a meaningful discussion. When it comes to any proposed cutting along the Canal, we ask for a carefully considered, inclusive and planned approach in order to preserve the historic, recreational and economic value, while also ensuring our community’s safety in the years to come. I look forward to attending these meetings and hope our residents will join.”
