The Penfield Town Board is expected to set two public hearings regarding the Southpoint Marina expansion.

Two measures are on the board’s meeting agenda this Thursday: one would set a public hearing on the project; the other would set a public hearing on the project’s environmental review.

The Daniele family, which owns the marina, wants to add 176 boat slips and a 3,750 clubhouse. The marina is located along the south shore of Irondequoit Bay, which is an environmentally sensitive area. The Town Board required an in-depth environmental analysis because of the project’s potential to impact the bay environment.
