Farmington seeks resident input as they move forward updating comprehensive plan

The Town of Farmington wants to survey residents to determine future development, especially in high-traffic areas.

Town officials are asking residents to weigh in on things like street lighting, landscaping, bike lanes, bike racks, and some other features that are being considered.

The goal is to create a more highlightable space that will serve as ‘town center’.

The survey has 17 questions, which are open-ended, and intended to draw responses from those taking it. The survey is less about options, and more about ideas.

“We have an opportunity to plan for the growth of our town and to coordinate our efforts to guide land use and development to meet the future needs of our region, especially in terms of public health, safety, economic development and infrastructure,” Supervisor Peter Ingalsbe told The Messenger.

The survey is part of the Town’s effort to update its comprehensive plan. That plan will help manage growth that is expected in that part of Ontario County over the next decade.

Responses to the survey are due by 4:30 p.m. Friday, February 21st. Visit to find the survey, or stop by the town offices.
