You may know the good news but if not – I wanted to share that the village has been awarded $300,000 through the EPF grant program to support the Village Beach project. I write both to share the news and also my gratitude for your support of the application. We had such broad-based support – over 25 letters written! The project’s support by our county leaders, our lake leaders and neighbors, our school, town and village leaders, by local families, by arts organizations and advocates, small businesses, and economic development partners all played a crucial role in conveying the importance of this project.
Our state representatives did everything in their power, and Senator Gallivan’s endorsement of the regional significance of this free public access to Silver Lake through his recommendation of the $150,000 SAM grant we were awarded last year, helped to bring home the point.
You sent a strong signal about the local and the regional significance of this project and you took time out on short notice – always the way with grants – to learn about the vision and provide your support.
Even while we’ve been waiting, we haven’t been waiting! The Village hired a design firm this summer who have been working with a fabulous steering committee that has broad representation and knowledge. The team just finished schematic design for the beach. If you didn’t see it at the open house last month, the village will soon be posting it at our website.
So now we can fine tune it based on final funding (we had requested $500,000) and move efficiently into construction drawings this spring.
Thanks again – the time you took and the results it has brought is one more proof that Perry is a YES community!

The SLA with the help from Karl Hanafin created a nice graphical interface for the temperature sensor at Silver Lake. Click on the URL.
Roland Beck, from the State Park’s Office at Letchworth, and the SLA WQ Committee worked together to make available this very important disposal station. This will help alleviate the possibility of invasive species being transported into Silver Lake or from Silver Lake to another body of water. The Invasive Disposal Station is installed at the State Public Launch at the South west end of Silver Lake. Let us all do our part and use this valuable tool.
