Aurora Reaches Plowing Agreement for Knox Farm
Aurora Reaches Plowing Agreement for Knox Farm

by Adam Zaremski

At its Jan. 24 meeting, the Aurora Town Board approved an agreement between the town and New York State regarding the plowing of Knox Farm State Park. The town will continue to plow the driveway and parking lot at the park.

Town Supervisor Jolene Jeffe said no extra gates would be installed, which had been a possibility raised by the state. Jeffe said this agreement would help give the Friends of Knox Farm a chance to organize efforts to reinvent how the park is managed.

Cycling Event

The Town Board also gave its approval for a youth cycling event at JP Nicely Memorial Park in West Falls. Organizer John Roden asked to hold an event for youths eight to 14 years old to race around the woods at the park, using mostly existing pathways, for several loops. The event is scheduled for July 16 at 10:30 a.m. to noon, with food to follow the race. He said the money raised would be sent to a not for profit group, not specifying which one during the Jan. 18 work session.

Parks and Recreation Director Peggy Cooke said it would be a “wonderful addition” at the park, and would not interfere with the baseball games there, as they are held later in the afternoon.

Roden said he has organized USA Cycling sanctioned races for over 10 years and thought the park would be a good place to hold the new event.
