Real estate agents partner with village

The Greater Rochester Association of Realtors has obtained a $15,000 grant to help the village of Penn Yan in Yates County to develop a comprehensive plan for its future.

The grant is from the National Association of Realtors’ “Smart Growth” program. GRAR will partner with the Penn Yan 2020 Vision Steering Committee and the Rochester Regional Community Design Center to develop the plan to guide the future development of Penn Yan.

The Vision Plan for Penn Yan will address waterfront development, the downtown core, housing and mixed use development, new commercial and community development, architectural and environmental design guidelines, transportation and related connections, community gateways and signage among others.

The plan will include ideas to discourage sprawl development, encourage growth within the village core, promote smart growth and walk-ability, making Penn Yan more sustainable for its future.
