Rt 81 Information

The issue of the reconstruction of I-81 through the city of Syracuse is extremely important for the Village.  All of you are aware of the truck traffic through Aurora and the broken pipes, congestion, noise and safety issues that it causes.  The DOT is in the final stages of deciding whether to repair the elevated highway through Syracuse or to demolish it and replace it with a street-level boulevard.  The boulevard would be a regular city street, with 16 stoplights, connecting I-81 at the south of the city to I-81 at the north of the city.  The highway traffic itself would be routed east onto 481 and eventually connect again with I-81 on the north and with the Thruway.  Right now truck traffic comes through Aurora, or takes other routes to the west, instead of staying on 81, because these routes are 15 to 20 miles shorter than remaining on 81 and the Thruway to get to destinations west of Syracuse.  Taking these alternate routes from Homer to Thruway exit 42 (Geneva) is between 57 and 61 miles; taking the proposed 81 and 481 route is over 90 miles.  There is no doubt that traffic headed west from I-81 will find Aurora an attractive shortcut.  We cannot afford more long-haul trucks through our village.

NEWS FROM WELLS COLLEGE

The Wells College Seed Exchange is open for 2017, loaded with nearly 1,400 packets of many varieties of vegetable, flower and herb seeds. The Seed Exchange is completely free and open to the public. Our Seed Exchange cabinet is accessible whenever the Wells College Long Library is open: Sunday: 11:00 a.m. to 12:00 midnight; Monday through Thursday: 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 midnight; Friday: 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m.; and Saturday: 1:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Note that library hours change during academic breaks; you are advised to check the Wells College Library website for current operating hours. The Seed Exchange cabinet is located on the 2nd floor of the Long Library, around the corner from the circulation desk in the Learning Commons area.

We are grateful to our generous seed donors: Annie’s Heirloom Seeds; Botanical Interests; Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company; Burpee’s Seed Company; Ferry Morse Seeds; Fruition Seeds; Gurney’s; Henry Field’s Seed & Nursery Company; High Mowing Organic Seed; Johnny’s Selected Seeds; Renee’s Garden; Seed Savers Exchange; Sheffield’s Seed Company; Southern Exposure Seed Exchange; Stokes Seed; and Turtle Tree Seed.

In order to stretch our seed quantities and support as many local gardeners as possible, we ask Seed Exchange patrons to please take only as much seed as you need for this growing season; we provide smaller seed envelopes for this purpose. We also welcome saved seed from our area growers; please use the pre-labeled seed envelopes to provide information about your donation. The Wells College Seed Exchange is a collaboration between the Center for Sustainability and the Environment and the Long Library at Wells College. Come get what you need to get growing this season.
