August 2019.  There are many capital projects going on throughout the Village, totaling approximately 5.3 Million.  All of these projects reflect Kenmore's on-going efforts to invest in our buildings and infrastructure. 

 

Work is nearing completion at the Kenmore Community Center.  This project included a full asbestos removal, new HVAC, a new roof,  new energy-efficient windows, LED lighting and the installation of new handicap-accessible bathrooms.  Work also includes new flooring in the two main community spaces. The Center will re-open sometime in September. The estimated cost of this project is $1.1M.  The Water main on Wabash has been installed and work is currently in progress on Kinsey.  This project cost $1.5M  The full street reconstruction of Wardman (between Myron and Colvin) is also underway.  This project includes new water, storm and water lines, new curbs and sidewalks and repaving.  This project will cost approximately $2.5M.  The Wilber Sidewalk project started this month and includes work between Kenmore Avenue and Hoover as well as sidewalks in and around the Community Center.

 

While we appreciate that these projects present some inconvenience, we hope you'll "excuse our dust" knowing that each of these projects shows your tax dollars being used to improve Kenmore.

 

 

 

April 2019.  The Kenmore Community Center is closed, effective April 8, 2019, while the building undergoes major renovations.  The project includes full asbestos abatement, a new roof, new HVAC, new energy-efficient windows, and installation of new handicap-accessible bathroom facilities.  The $1.1 million dollar project is being funded, in part, through a $500,000 grant, thanks to NYS Assemblyman Robin Schimminger.  This is the first major renovation to the building, which was built in the 1950s and originally was used by the school district as an elementary school.  Since Betsy Ross Elementary closed, the Village has used the building as a community center.  It is the site of our Senior Nutrition Meal Program, which provides hot lunches and activities for our seniors.  While the Center is closed, programs have been relocated.  The Senior Meal Program has been moved to the Ensminger Program.

The Village continues to provide van service to and from the Senior Meal Program for a $1 round trip donation.  Advanced registration is required for both the meal program and the van service.

To reserve van service, please call 716/873-5700

To reserve a meal, please call 716/ 874-3266

Renovations to the Kenmore Community Center are expected to take 6 months. We look forward to re-opening the Center in September!

 

 

January, 2019.  The Village of Kenmore is currently advertising for bids for a capital project involving the Kenmore Community Center, located at 135 Wilber.  This project involves renovations to the Center, including a new roof, new energy-efficient windows, some new flooring, new heating and cooling, and new bathrooms.  The estimated cost for Phase I of this project is $1.1M.  Funding for this project comes from a borrowing and from a $500,000 grant secured through NYS Assemblyman Robin Schimminger.  Due to the extensive work involved, the Center will be closed throughout construction.  Programs that take place at the Center will be relocated.  Work will begin in the Spring.
