By the time you read this about one-third of 2023 will be behind us!

The Hillcrest Civic Association outdid the St. Patrick’s Parade of last year with a record turnout of both participants and spectators.  It was great to see everyone enjoying the day.

Spring should be in full swing and it is time get out and enjoy the weather and start the Spring cleanup.  This year we will once again have Clean-Up Day.  It will be on Saturday, May 20th, and should not conflict with the Hillcrest Booster Days as it did last year.  Look for more details in this Newsletter and on our Website at

Hillcrest Booster Days is planned for the weekend of June 3rd and 4th and I expect another fine job will be done by the Hillcrest Civic Association in planning and sponsoring this event as well.

We have a planned new entrance to the Town Hall that will improve accessibility, security, and appearance of the Town Hall.  We hope to complete it this year.

The construction season is getting underway and two significant projects will be continuing. The first is the NYS Department of Transportation’s (NYSDOT) new bridge crossing the Chenango River, replacing the old steel bridge at the intersection of Route 79 and Pigeon Hill Road.  The bridge will cross into the Town of Greene in Chenango County from the Town of Fenton in Broome County.  Grade work for the rail crossing has already been started this season and it is expected the  bridge will be in use by mid-summer of this year. After completion, the old bridge will be demolished and the part of Route 79 from the new bridge to Pigeon Hill Road will be given to the Town of Fenton.

The long-awaited Broome County sidewalk project on Chenango Street should have begun by now and should be complete around the end of August.  The plan is to mill and repave Chenango Street after the sidewalks are complete.  The paving is expected to be completed in 2023.

Look for details in this Newsletter and on our Website at for details on  local Town of Fenton Highway projects planned for this year.

Please feel free to contact us with any questions or suggestions.
