Town of Constantia town board meeting



The Town Board as well as many people from the Constantia community is interested in improving the appearance of the Town through a revitalization program. Improving the appearance of properties within the Town of Constantia will require a long term effort from our residents. The Town Board will initiate a two-fold program:

First, the Board will begin to enforce Local Law 1 of 2009, originally enacted in the mid 1980’s, dealing with outdoor storage on private property. This law can be found on the Town of Constantia website,, and is available in the clerk’s office at the Town hall. The Law generally prohibits property owners of the Town from storing certain items outside on their property. These items include abandoned, dismantled and unlicensed motor vehicles, abandoned mobile homes, recreational vehicles, boats, household appliances, rubbish and debris. Enforcement of violations of this law will be done through the Town’s Code Enforcement Office, after a moratorium of 60 days to allow residents to comply. Please refer to the actual Law for more details.

Secondly, the Board will establish a Revitalization Committee that will work on projects directed toward beautifying the Town. These could include work on sidewalks, flower and tree plantings, decorations, and possibly fund raising for these types of activity. We will need interested residents to work with the Town Board on this committee.

This announcement coupled with a 60 day grace period is an opportunity to bring properties into compliance with Town Law local ordinance #1 of 2009. Please take advantage of this time and contact the Town Clerk if you are interested in volunteering for the Revitalization Committee.
