Town Board Meeting–Re: Apartment Units Rt 57

On Monday October 17th there is a hearing at the Town of Clay offices at 7:30 pm requesting a zone change from RA-100 Residential/Agriculture to R-APT Apartments for the property located at Oswego Road and Bel Harbor Drive.

Residents in the area have a petition regarding the proposed change of zoning for 3 lots at the corner of Route 57 (Oswego Road) and Bel Harbor Drive in the Bayberry community of Liverpool, NY.  The applicant is requesting this zone change to construct 24 unit (one bedroom) units.

If you wish you can sign this petition you can stop by 4100 Bel Harbor Drive.

THE APPLICATION FOR ZONE CHANGE WAS PULLED PRIOR TO THE MEETING BY THE DEVELOPER.

Remembering Clarence Rycraft

 

ryeOn March 9th Central New York, the Town of Clay and the Bayberry Community lost a dear friend and neighbor. Clarence “Rye” Rycraft lived in Bayberry since the early 1960’s; he was very influential with the matters of the Town of Clay and instrumental in many things which shape our area today.  Even with a very busy schedule, he seldom turned anyone away who had questions or comments about Bayberry or the Town of Clay and certainly not lost for words!

Serving as a volunteer on many levels with the BCA, he was also on the Town’s Planning and Town Board for a combined 25 years, retiring in 2011.  He was always well informed, prepared and passionate about issues he believed in and putting aside any personal agenda, he put the Town, community and neighbors first.

Rye will be missed by those many whose lives he touched.  I was his neighbor for nearly 30 years, every night he and his good friend John walked their dogs on the Oriole/Quail loop, it will take a while getting used to not seeing the two lights on the dog collars meandering through the streets of Bayberry.

THANK YOU RYE.

The April 7th Board of Directors’ meeting will include discussion on a form of dedication for Mr. Rycraft, we hope you will attend. If you cannot attend the meeting, submit any ideas via http://www.bayberrycommunity.org or bcaexecboard@yahoo.com.
