  • I-Square, which was in the thick of construction this past winter, now has businesses opening. It's one of several major projects under way in Irondequoit.
Irondequoit officials will take public comments on a draft comprehensive plan for the town during a public forum at 7 p.m. on Thursday, August 7. A public hearing will take place at 7:35 p.m. on Thursday, August 21. Both meetings will be held at Town Hall, 1280 Titus Avenue.

The town government hasn't adopted a townwide comprehensive or master plan since 1985. The last effort began in 2008, but was never finished. The new draft is essentially an updated version of the 2008 document, and it'll contain development objectives and other goals for the town.

Officials have said that the plan will help redevelop some parts of town and will aid the community's economic growth. It'll provide developers with specifics of what the community wants to see and what it expects of projects. It will also spell out how town officials plan to bolster neighborhoods and town infrastructure.

The draft plan is available here.
