STS Consulting Principal Planners took to heart the directive from the Town of Geneva to prepare a plan that  directs the Town toward a more sustainable and Climate Smart future. The plan provides a blueprint for redevelopment of 1960's era shopping mall into a dynamic, mixed use "Town Center" with mix of residential, commercial, parks and extensive network of bike and pedestrian facilities. The plan recommends reconfiguration of the existing NYS5/US20 and CR 6 highway intersection into a roundabout replacing traffic signal and town boulevard,  developed with "Complete Streets" standards.  Among many other recommendations are "District Approach Stormwater Retention" and infiltration, protection of agricultural land and historic sites and promotion of economic development.

STS Consulting receives 2016 New York Upstate American Planning Association (APA) Chapter's Awards for
