Maintenance of the Knox Fields at Knox Farm State Park will be funded in part through a trust and agency account the Aurora Town Board established this week.
The account is dedicated to capital projects associated with the fields that are used for community soccer by the Aurora Arsenal Soccer League, as well as the equestrian center within the park.
Town Supervisor Jolene Jeffe said the account will be supplemented by any additional revenues generated by use permit fees or donations that can then be used to fund capital improvements at the fields. Examples of capital projects would be a permanent water line and parking lot improvements.
The Town Board also referred to the Planning Board a request to rezone 3.6 acres of land at 1963 Mill Road from residential to agricultural to accommodate the future home of Hawk Creek Wild Life Preserve. The property is part of the 14 acres dedicated to the project. The smaller portion of land requiring rezoning is in the front of the parcel.
The board also set a public hearing for 7 p.m. Feb. 25 about work on a new water line along Geneva Road and Center Street in an area known as Water District 6.
The board awarded a $2,165 contract to Tri-R Mechanical Services in West Seneca to repair the Municipal Center’s warehouse furnace.
