Minutes from the October 20 Meeting

The October 20 meeting had a packed agenda and room full of people.  We heard from the Monroe County Parks Dept and the Cornell Cooperative Extension about the plans for the Extension to move the Seneca Park, and for their current building to be taken down.  Then we moved into a presentation from Highland Hospital detailing their expansion plans.  Here are the full NBN Sector 6 Meeting Notes.

Update: here is a copy of the slides that Highland Hospital presented at the meeting:  Highland Hospital Community Presentation, Oct 28, 2014.  For those who missed the meeting, the slides include a project overview, renderings of the proposed addition, and a project timeline.
