Holiday Valley continues their improvement project plans with the construction of a new high-speed quadchairlift, to be completed next summer.

Plans are moving ahead for HolidayValley to construct a new quadchairlift. Two resolutions associatedwith the project were approved lastweek by the County of CattaraugusIndustrial Development Agency.The new chairlift should be readyfor use in time for the start of the2010-2011 ski season, according toJane Eshbaugh, marketing directorat Holiday Valley. The idea is tocreate a faster and more comfortableskiing experience.Eshbaugh expects constructionto begin next summer, and explainsthat the new lift will be a “high-speed quad.” Once people get on, itwill be a much quicker ride to thetop. “It’s a longer chairlift,” thusallowing a skier more time goingdown the slope. Eshbaugh notes thenew lift will service intermediateterrain, which is “one of our mostpopular areas” on Saturday and
Sunday mornings. “We have ve

The Villager 
featured an article on Peggy Filock andthe workshops she is currently offering. The article incorrectly indicated that Peggy
is a massage “therapist.” Please note that Peggy is not certied as a therapist. Thearticle accurately explains that Filock is a certied infant massage “instructor” whois teaching parents (and grandparents) the benets of infant massage. We apologize
for the error in giving Mrs. Filock an incorrect title.

And wasn’t it a beauty?Nature has its own versionof “trick or treat” you know.nd for most of the month, itwas a real pleasure for thoseof us who relish the crispweather, the blue skies and thegorgeous palate of colors one
can only nd in the Enchanted
Mountains.And now? We’re down toone last weekend – one last
ing for fall. The transition to
November can be a rough one,so you better saddle up andcome on in to Ellicottville thisweekend to see some sights of a different variety.I speak, of course, of thetrick or treaters. Halloweenfalls on a Saturday night thisyear, and the early eveninghours are for the little ones toparade from house to house,busily collecting candy whiledressed as their favoriteanimal, vegetable or mineral.Later in the evening, whilethe wee ones empty theirpillow cases and count theirloot, there’s no doubt thevillage will have more thanits fair share of slightly moremature revelers and lunatics,also dressed in a wide (andsometimes very strange)array of frightening garb. If you’ve never been to Balloonson Halloween night, you arereally missing out. And overat Double Diamond? Well,Brooks really knows how tothrow a Halloween party, andthe stranger the costume, thebetter he likes it.And don’t forget to visitour good friends overat Sommerville Valley’s“Nightmare Hayride.” Just theticket to get you in the spirit of things, (pun intended).So, dear readers, the lastweekend of October canhold a lot of fun for folks of all ages. Pull out somethinginteresting, put it on, andc’mon downtown! HappyHalloween, y’all! Until nextweek …

The Ellicottville TownBoard convened on Tuesday,October 28. Many topicswere on the agenda for theevening. First on the agendawas the Ellicottville ZoningLaws. An amendment wason the table to extend partof Ellicottville’s LD (LowDensity Residential) district,approximately 4,500 acres or7 square miles northwest of town into the AR (AgriculturalResidential) district thatcurrently encompasses mostof the outlying areas of theTown of Ellicottville. Beingthat it was a public hearing,various town residents were onhand to express their concernsregarding the possible windturbines that a few arearesidents have discussedallowing on their land.Buffalo Bison farm ownerRichard Southard, who ownsapproximately 600 acresto the northwest of town,asked the board to consider a
modication to the proposed
zoning amendments thatwould allow him to be able toput windmills on his propertywithout requiring a variance.s some of the Buffalo Ranchland is currently zoned AR andwas being proposed to changeto LD (where windmills wouldbe prohibited), Southardexpressed concern that hewould like to possibly be ableto put the wind turbines on theland proposed to be designatedLD. The board took hisremarks under advisement.Town Planner Carol Horowitzexpressed that even AR landhas “ridgeline” guidelines thatdo not allow the turbines to bebuilt if they would be visibleon a protected ridgeline.Resident and Buffalo Ranchneighbor Bill Brown expressedthat though his property isLD, he is surrounded by someof the Buffalo Ranch’s landcurrently zoned AR, whereturbines could be built. Heexpressed that the wind
turbines “do not benet the
(Ellicottville) community” andthat there would be “no relief to homeowners” regardinga reduction in electric bills.Local resident Jack Krameralso voiced his concernthat “even though there is aridgeline ordinance in place,the structures (which reach upto 550 feet tall) would reachabove the ridgeline.”The board voted to acceptthe amendment to the zoninglaws, thus expanding the LDdistrict around Ellicottville.Dave Riley, President of HoliMont, and Sean Hopkins,
Attorney from the law rm
of Hopkins and Sorgi whorepresent HoliMont, discussed
with the board the Caneld
Expansion project. Theyare working closely with the
Town of Manseld, the Town
and Village of Ellicottvillein order to obtain sewer andwater rights for the building of 225 condominium units on theproperty adjacent to HoliMontto the east. Hopkins saidthat “all DEC requirementshave been met” and that it isnow up to the three entitiesto come to an agreement onthe water and sewer rights.
The Caneld project should
take approximately “ten to
fteen years to build out”
according to Hopkins. He also
afrmed that HoliMont would
contribute $550,000 to be puttowards the Town and Village
sewer system over a ve year
period. Hopkins is hoping forthe Town and Village to cometo an agreement regardingthe sewer system by the nextsession.Bill Brown again spoke atthe public hearing regardingthe new Village Hall buildingthat the Village was proposing.Board members are looking atwhether to expand the existingbuilding, or to build somethingnew that would be shared byboth the Village and Town.He suggested to the boardthat various Town and Villageentities could be consolidatedand wondered “why are theretwo engineers and two clerks”and suggested to the boardthat they could possibly “workcloser together.” A boardmember questioned whetherhe was suggesting that theTown and Village shouldbecome one. Brown answeredthat the “very thought wouldbe heresy.”In Fall Fest news, TownSupervisor John Burrellpraised the police forces fortheir work in controlling thecrowds over the weekend. Hecommented that there was“good and successful policingof a large, large festival.“ 114arrests took place, with 79of those being citations foropen containers. There werefour DWIs over the festivalweekend. Police Chief LarryGraham told the board thatthey had been awarded a$1,250 grant towards theuse of extra patrollers orroad block inspections. Inall, the board praised thepolice department and Townemployees for a good andsafe Fall Fest. Graham alsoappreciated the use of theElectric ATVs donated by EVS(Electric Vehicle Systems) of Ellicottville.Highway DepartmentSuperintendent Dave Golleydiscussed the bridge that needsreplacing on SommervilleValley Road. He anticipatesa cost of $250,000 to replacethe bridge, but suggested thatif done “in house” it would bemuch cheaper. He anticipateswork to be started on the newbridge next summer. In otherHighway Department news,over 4,000 tons of salt andsand have been delivered tocombat the heavy snowfallsanticipated this winter.A public hearing has beenset on the 2010 budget onNovember 10 at 7:30pm.Town Supervisor John Burrellsaid that the upcoming budgetis “higher than I’d like” butwill be looking to reduce itfurther. The belief is that townrevenues will be less thanlast year, but suggested thatthe Tamarack Club mortgagerevenues have not beenaccounted for, which wouldthen fall commencing undernext year’s budget.The meeting concluded witha dedication to the late DonPritchard, a past Town ZoningBoard member and greatcontributor to the community.The board agreed that he willbe sorely missed.The next meeting of theEllicottville Town Boardwill take place on Tuesday,November 24, 2009 at 6pm.
