New York Main Street Grant

The Town of Eden was excited to present Castle Redevelopment Group with their portion of the New York Main Street grant.  This grant helps support the revitalization of Main Streets across New York state.  Caste Redevelopment Group was able to improve retail space along with two apartments.  The site was originally deemed unsafe.  With the vision and financial commitment of Anthony Sinicki and his business partner, John Migliore, they were able to save the building and help revitalize Main Street.

Brightening the Town of Eden

As part of the New York State Main Street Grant, the Town of Eden was able to improve our streetscape by adding a few additions around town this year.  With the help of the Eden Community Foundation, we were able to double our grant funding from $15,000 to $30,000 giving an even greater enhancement to our downtown area.  Through the efforts of the Eden Community Foundation, the Eden Garden Study Club, and the Town of Eden, we were able to replace all hanging baskets and ground containers allowing us to use a greater variety of flowers.  Thank you to our local farmers, Agles, Henrys, and Zittels for storing the flowers. We have more improvements on the way, we look forward to sharing them soon.  While we are in difficult times, one thing will always remain the same, our community coming together to brighten the Town of Eden.  Thank you to all who assisted.

NY Forward Loan Fund

The NY Forward Loan Fund (NYFLF), announced on Friday by Governor Andrew M. Cuomo, will begin accepting pre-applications today.  The $100 million fund is a new economic recovery loan program aimed at supporting New York State small businesses, nonprofits and small landlords as they reopen after the COVID-19 outbreak and NYS on PAUSE.

The NYFLF targets the state’s small businesses with 20 or fewer full-time equivalent (FTE) employees (90% of all businesses), nonprofits and small landlords that have seen a loss of rental income.  The NYFLF is specifically timed to support businesses and organizations as they proceed to reopen and have upfront expenses to comply with guidelines (e.g., inventory, marketing, refitting for new social distancing guidelines) under the New York Forward Plan.

Priority will be given to industries that have been reopened. Applications will be reviewed on a rolling basis as regions and industries reopen, and seek to target:

  • Small businesses and nonprofits employing 20 or fewer full-time equivalent (FTE) employees;
  • Small businesses that have gross revenues of less than $3 million per year;
  • Nonprofits that provide direct services and have an annual operating budget of less than $3 million per year; and
  • Businesses that have not received a loan from either SBA Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) or SBA Economic Injury Disaster Loan (EIDL) for COVID-19 in 2020.

The program is not a first-come, first-served loan program.  Program information can be found on ESD’s website (https://esd.ny.gov/nyforwardloans-info), as well as on the pre-application page (https://nyloanfund.com).

 

Mask Distribution – May 26th 10am-2pm outside the Eden Town Hall

This week Erie County distributed one-time use surgical masks to all towns and villages.  The Town of Eden was given enough for about half our population.  We would like these to get to our vulnerable and at-need residents.  If you are in need of a mask, they will be distributed outside of the Eden Town Hall on May 26th from 10am-2pm.

Memorial Day

Due to the COVID – 19 Pandemic Memorial Day Ceremonies in the Town of Eden have been cancelled.  This includes the Memorial Day Parade and Ceremony at the Evergreen Cemetery.

In solidarity with all Towns in Erie County, the Town of Eden churches along with both fire halls will ring their bells in remembrance of our fallen heroes at 9:00am on Memorial Day, Monday, May 25, 2020.

Newell Faulkner American Legion Post 880 Honor Guard will follow the ringing of the bells with a 21-gun salute and taps at St. Mary’s Church in East Eden and at 10:00am at the Evergreen Cemetery in the Field of Honor.  Residents may join the ceremonies but we ask that you follow proper social distancing and not gather after the ceremony.

“As we set today aside to honor and thank our veterans, let us be mindful that we should do this every day of the year and not just one.” –Beth Pennington

Eden Corn Festival Cancellation

Press Release:
57th Annual Eden Corn Festival Cancellation
The Eden Corn Festival Board of Directors have made the difficult decision to officially cancel
the 57th Annual Eden Corn Festival scheduled for August 6th–9th.
Much consideration was given to every aspect of the Festival. With many months of planning
already into the event, it was decided that the event could not commence this year due to all the
uncertainties with the current COVID-19 pandemic.
The Board felt it would be too much of a financial strain to attempt to put on the Festival and
comply with all State, County, and Local “Social Distancing” requirements due to the
unpredictability of the ever changing criteria associated with the pandemic. The Health and
Safety of our committee members, volunteers, sponsors, employees, and patrons is of the
utmost importance to the Board.
Our thoughts go out to the many dedicated volunteers, organizations, businesses, and
employees, that benefit financially from the Festival. Lets hope 2021 bring us better times.
The tentative dates for the 2021 Festival are August 5th – 8th.
Sincerely,
Eden Corn Festival Board of Directors

Summer Recreation Camps

It is with great sadness that the Town of Eden is cancelling Summer Recreation Camps for the year 2020.  This includes day camps, mini camps, and swimming lessons.  Given the challenge of an undetermined opening timeline, safety requirements for both children and staff, and significant financial uncertainty, we have made the difficult decision to close.  Our seasonal employees and participating families need adequate time to make alternate plans for the summer. Other recreational programs are still being evaluated.  We will continue consideration of these as we work through phases set forth for reopening.

We recognize how this may put a great burden on families who rely on Eden’s summer recreation camp as a low-cost program for their children.  This decision was not made lightly.  We must put the safety of our community first.  Please do not hesitate to contact the Supervisor’s office with any needs you may have.

Sisson Highway garbage pickup

If you live on Sisson Higway between Hardt Road and Schintzius Road….Waste Management will pick up your garbage tomorrow due to the road closure.

COVID – 19 Update    April 16, 2020

(From Supervisor Hartman)

Good evening, I am calling to provide an update on the COVID-19 pandemic.  First let me start by saying how proud I am of our Eden residents.  By staying home and practicing social distancing, we are saving lives and doing our part to help flatten the curve. I recognize how difficult this is and ask for your continued patience during the next few weeks as our state leaders figure out a plan to re-open.  On Tuesday, April 14th, the Governor’s orders requiring that essential businesses provide facial masks or coverings for employees working directly with the public went into effect.  Starting tomorrow, April 17,th the Governor is ordering any New York State resident to wear a face mask or covering in public settings where it is physically impossible to practice proper social distancing.  This would include, but not limited to grocery stores and pharmacies.  Today, the Governor also extended the New York Pause order until May 15th.  As the weather improves during this extension, residents might be more tempted to gather.  We are asking you to follow these orders for the protection of every Eden resident. Also, the Town of Eden has extended the Local State of Emergency until May 15th. As always, if you need something, please do not hesitate to reach out to the Town at 716-992-3408.  I hope all of you are well.  Please take care of yourselves. Thank you and have a good night.

April 6, 2020 – COVID -19 Update

COVID – 19 Update

Good evening, I wanted to provide an update from the Town of Eden regarding the COVID -19 pandemic.  The NYS Governor has extended his stay-at-home order to April 29th.  We are asking all residents to stay at home, unless you are an essential employee. Over the next several weeks, we ask residents to only make trips outside the home which are absolutely necessary, such as to grocery stores and pharmacies.  Please only send one person and leave children at home whenever possible.  We will begin the next round of calling our senior and at need residents this week.  In the meantime, if you need something, please call the town hall at 716-992-3408. Local municipalities have been asked to strictly enforce the no gathering orders.  This is intended for both residents and businesses. In light of the upcoming religious holidays, we are urging you to reconsider large family gatherings. Until further notice, all playgrounds in the Town of Eden are closed. We are also strictly enforcing the no non-essential construction order. Any construction that is not deemed essential or necessary to protect the health and safety of Eden residents needs to stop immediately.  In accordance to the CDC’s most recent recommendations, we are asking that all residents wear a non-surgical face mask when in public.  There are several ways to make your own, including wearing a handkerchief or scarf.  I recognize that this is a very stressful and uncertain time. Your understanding and patience is appreciated.  These measures are making a difference and will continue to save lives.  I also would like to thank our emergency responders, healthcare, grocery store, and pharmacy workers, along with all essential employees risking their lives to help others. Please take care of yourselves.  We will get through this together.

CDC recommends wearing a face mask in public

The CDC is now recommending that you wear a face mask when out in public. The Town of Eden is asking anyone with the ability to make masks and are willing to sell/donate to our residents to please send their contact information to Marlene at marlene@edenny.gov and we will post this on our website and Facebook pages.

Thank you!

Important Message from the Supervisor

Good evening, this is Melissa Hartman, Eden Town Supervisor. Governor Cuomo has issued an executive order beginning Sunday, March 22 at 8pm, for New York State residents to stay at home.

A more extensive list can be found at https://esd.ny.gov/.  We ask that our residents adhere to these orders to protect essential workers and first responders.  You will be able to leave your homes for food, medical supplies, pharmaceuticals, pet supplies, or take to care of family members who are unable to care for themselves.  You are free to go outside, take a walk, or play with your children.  But we ask that you maintain a safe distance from anyone outside of your immediate family.

These are extraordinary times for the Town of Eden, New York State, the United States of America, and the entire world.  Because of this, we need to take extraordinary measures.  Uncertainty can cause confusion and panic.  We want you to know that our Town will persevere.  We will work together to ensure the well-being of our friends and neighbors.  Our amazing network of first responders and emergency services has been working hard over the last few weeks in preparation.

Additionally, we are asking everyone to take the time to check on your neighbors, especially seniors.  If any resident needs food or pharmaceuticals and can’t leave home, or if you are an essential employee and in need of childcare, please call us at 716-992-3408 for assistance.  If you suspect that you have COVID – 19 (coronavirus), please call your doctor.  If you require emergency assistance, please call 911.

Unfortunately, I do not have any information regarding the duration of this order.  I ask that we do our part to follow the guidelines provided and stay in our homes.
