Town of Eden News & Announcements

Take a minute: tell us what you think

In Cultivate Eden, the Town’s Comprehensive Plan update, the residents brought up the idea of a community center for the Town.  Subsequently, we were awarded a grant to find out how desirable and feasible something like this could be in our community.  We invite you to take a quick survey so we can find out more as we continue to study the idea.  Thank you!



The Eden Highway Department is available for residents to dump yard waste…  this only include brush, grass clippings & leaves.  If you bring your leaves in bags, they need to be emptied into the leaf pile, do not leave the plastic bags.  No garbage, building materials, scrap etc is allowed to be dumped.

Eden Valley Mill historic marker

Today we held the Eden Valley Mill historic marker unveiling.  We would like to thank Senator Gallivan and Assemblyman David DiPietro for attending the event and for their continued support of the Town of Eden.  Also, we would like to recognize Eden resident, Gary Eye, for his passionate pursuit of the Mill’s historic preservation.  A very special thank you to the Pomeroy foundation for their generous donation of the marker.

The Town of Eden Receives State and National Recognition as a Safe Town

On April 16, 2018, the Safewise Report, an independent review site, released the “100 Safest Cities in America” naming Eden, New York the twenty third safest town in America. The report uses recent FBI crime data to calculate the rate of crimes per 1,000 people in cities and towns reporting very low or no violent crimes (e.g., aggravated assault, murder, rape and robbery).

In addition to this national ranking, the Town of Eden was named the fifth safest town in New York State by Elite Personal Finance, a financial review company that conducts independent reviews. As with Safewise, Elite uses FBI crime data to determine crime rates within each town in New York State. Eden reported zero violent crimes in 2016, and therefore had a crime score of 0.00 for the 2017 and 2018 reports.

Eden, New York is considered a small rural/suburban town with a population of 7,670. Eden is located approximately 18 miles south of Buffalo, New York. On May 9, 2018, the Eden Town Board will recognize the Eden Police Department for their outstanding dedication to the safety of the Town of Eden. The presentation will be held at 7:00 p.m. during the regular town board meeting at the Eden Town Hall.
