The Fairport Industrial Development Agency (IDA) is pleased to announce that construction work for an improved and enlarged public parking lot between Railroad and High Streets in the Village of Fairport has begun. Improvements to the parcel, which is owned by the Fairport IDA, will add 35 additional parking spaces for a total of 61 with an enhanced layout, new lighting and pedestrian walkways, and additional green space and landscaping.

Macedon Excavating and Paving, Inc. was awarded the construction contract. BME Associates from Fairport serve as engineers for this project, working closely with the Village of Fairport and adjacent property owners. The improvements follow the recommendations of the 2012 Northwest Quadrant Master Plan and complement the 2016 Streetscape Plan Update. Construction is projected to be completed by August 25, 2017.

“This is another successful example of the Fairport IDA providing public improvements for the benefit of village residents, businesses and their patrons,” says H. Kevin Clark, Deputy Mayor and Chair of the IDA Board of Directors. “This project will provide much-needed public parking and green space on the north side of the village.”
