Summer Update from Town Supervisor Ciaran Hanna

June 21, 2022

Greetings! Wishing everyone an enjoyable and safe summer here in the Town of Perinton.

Our Parks Department has been hard at work getting our parks, facilities and trails ready for the busy season. In partnership with Fairport Electric, we recently converted light fixtures at our tennis and pickleball courts to LED lighting. This environmentally conscious decision will further enhance the courts for evening play.

This summer, the courts at Fellows Road Park are being resurfaced, with two of the tennis courts being reconfigured into six pickleball courts. Pickleball is the fastest growing sport in the nation and one of our most popular activities in the Community Center. The project also includes new surfaces, new nets, relining of the area and all new fencing. While the Fellows Road courts are temporarily closed, we encourage you to enjoy the tennis and pickleball courts at Perinton Park, Potter Park and Kreag Road Park.

I am also happy to announce that public WIFI is available in our park buildings, including Fellows Road Park, Perinton Park, and Whitebrook Nature Area.

Our Recreation Department has been busy planning some of our favorite summertime events, such as the Sunday Concerts at Center Stage and the Thursday Gazebo Concert Series at Kennelley Park in the Village. I hope to see many of you enjoying these fun opportunities in Perinton this summer!

We will also welcome back the Pine Games, a free summer camp hosted in the Pines of Perinton. This Town program was established in partnership with the Fairport Central School District and Monroe County Sheriff’s Office. We are looking to add field trips and more community partners this year.

Summer also means construction season, and you may notice some updates and additions throughout our community. We developed a webpage to keep you informed on everything happening around Town called. “Projects of Community Interest.” You can find it under Building & Codes on

You can also find a list of Town, County, and State road projects on our website. As you are likely aware, New York State has patched Route 250, which is in dire need of repair. The Town has long advocated for the repair of Routes 96 and 250 and we are happy to see it on the State’s 2022-2023 schedule.

In other construction news, the Town has been actively working with Greenlight since January 2020 on several network expansion projects in Perinton. We’ve issued 14 total Right of Way (ROW) permits, authorizing 37,000+ linear feet of conduit and 4,000+ linear feet of overhead cable in Perinton. The Town’s thorough permit review approach and construction monitoring of utility projects in the ROW has always been with the best interests of our residents and existing facilities in mind. We recognize the importance and benefit of having an alternative broadband service provider for our residents, and we continue to work with Greenlight on their expansion plans.

Finally, I am pleased to welcome our new Town Clerk, Janelle Reed, who has served as a Recreation Supervisor for 10 years, and filled the position after the retirement of Jen West. I thank Jen for her 13 years of dedicated service and outstanding leadership as Town Clerk. I am certain that Janelle’s experience, customer service skills, organizational abilities, and detail-oriented nature will allow her to succeed in this new position. You likely already know Janelle if your children participated in any of our summer camps or soccer leagues, but if not, please stop by the Town Clerk’s Office and say hello.

Summers in Perinton are filled with endless opportunities, and I hope you will take some time to enjoy the season with your family! Try out a new Recreation class, take a hike on our trails, play a game of pickleball, enjoy a free concert, or have a picnic at one of our many parks.

As always, if you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to stop by, call or email any time. My number is (585) 223-0770, and my email address is I look forward to hearing from you.
