More than 12 years after the original plan was laid out, the Brewerton Revitalization Project continues to take shape in Cicero. The Cicero Town Board held a workshop Feb. 3 at the Cicero Senior Center to discuss the project’s progress.
John Guariglia, an engineer with Saratoga Associates, said work has already been completed on the west side of Riverfront Park, including walking paths and the addition of picnic tables. The project also includes improvements to parking, curbing and sidewalks on Walnut Street. Guariglia said he expects the asphalt work to be done this spring.
Improvements to the eastern portion of the park remain, including a revamped entry to the park, a green area, and a pavilion. Guariglia presented the board with an excerpt from the New York State Department of Transportation’s final design report on the Brewerton Revitalization Project, which described the pavilion as a “1,300 square foot, partially open-air structure.” There is no formal design yet for the pavilion, but the town is hoping to host concerts and other events there.
