The Silver Lake Association (SLA) will host an event titled “Planning, Funding and Executing Public Projects: A Discussion with Government Agencies and Community Groups about Silver Lake, N.Y.” on May 13 at the Club at Silver Lake.
The main goal of this event is to address issues at Silver Lake and find ways they can be tackled.
“Were just hoping to get people excited about all the different things that people are working to do,” said Kelly Paganelli, an SLA member. “We were hoping to continue a discussion about what governments and communities can do working together to get some changes going.”
At the meeting, the association also plans to address the following topics: dredging of the lake, promoting native species planting and generally keeping the water healthy.
The event will be moderated by Andrea Locke of the Western New York Partnership for Regional Invasive Species Management. It will feature Frank Bright, a Professor at the University at Buffalo and co-chair of the SLA Water Quality committee.
Other featured speakers will include Jacquie Billings, a Village of Perry trustee and owner of the Hole in the Wall restaurant; Brittney Roggers of the New York Sea Grant; and John Whitney, a USDA district conservationist.
