Eclipse Information & Opportunities – Stay in the know!

By All Posts

Please view this post regarding eclipse-day preparations if you have not already done so!

Some extra information as we approach the big day!

1. The Rochester Museum & Science Center is looking for people to join them between 6-9 a.m. to help be background figures for broadcast news teams who will be reporting live from RMSC for morning show coverage.
If you’re interested, please sign up here: https://forms.gle/yUiLg46ecNPmcx1B6

2. As part of the Monroe County Sheriff Office’s on-going preparation for the solar eclipse, we gave permission for a camera trailer to be placed on the Town Hall’s front lawn, to strategically monitor the traffic flow at this major intersection. There are three cameras on the pole, and the Sheriff’s command post will be in charge of camera movement. We also agreed to allow the camera trailer to remain until April 30 so that normal traffic patterns can be monitored. We are always happy to comply with the MCSO’s request when it concerns the safety of Clarkson residents.

3. Academy Award-nominees Sandbox Films (Fire of Love), Kate Davis and David Heilbroner (Traffic Stop) are creating TOTALITY, a feature-length documentary portrait of the human experience in the moon’s shadow, leading up to and during the April 8th, 2024 total solar eclipse!

They are seeking video clips from eclipse-chasers, filmmakers, and adventurers who want to share their peak PERSONAL experiences from this 2024 celestial event. Creators of all clips used will receive an onscreen credit and a licensing fee.

Please visit the link to sign up and receive their filmmaker guide! https://www.totalityfilm.com/

Monroe County Agricultural and Farmland Protection Workshop

By All Posts
Monroe County Executive Adam Bello invites farmers, farmland owners and interested community members to participate in one of three upcoming Farmer/Landowner public workshops held by the county Department of Planning and Development to discuss an update to the 1999 Agricultural and Farmland Protection Plan. The county is seeking stakeholder ideas about how to preserve high quality farmland and support the continued viability of agriculture in Monroe County.
Monroe County’s first Agricultural and Farmland Protection Plan was developed in 1999 to help safeguard and sustain agricultural lands and a viable agricultural economy within county limits. The plan update seeks to address changes in the physical, social, and economic landscape over the past 20 years and recommend policies and projects to ensure that agricultural land and the farm operations that it supports thrive over the next 20 years. The update will be developed over the next eight months by the Department of Planning and Development, consultants from Labella Associates and an advisory committee of farmers and leaders from farm support institutions along with the County’s Agricultural and Farmland Protection Board.
In-person workshops will be held from 6 to 7 p.m. Tuesday, March 26 at Ogden Town Hall, 269 Ogden Center Road, and from 6 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 27 at Pittsford Community Center, 35 Lincoln Ave. A virtual workshop will be held from noon to 1 p.m. Wednesday, March 27 on Zoom. Registration is not required for in-person meetings. To register for the Zoom meeting, visit www.monroecountyagplan.com.

Eclipse Preparation and Important Information (Updated 3/25)

By All Posts
We are less than one month away from this once-in-a-lifetime event. The Clarkson-Brockport-Sweden area is the center of the eclipse in Monroe County, and we expect a very large influx of observers. The eclipse duration is from 2:07 – 4:33 pm, with total darkness from 3:20 – 3:24 pm. We are striving to find the balance between safeguarding our residents and our taxpayers’ assets, while being a welcoming community and enjoying this awesome event.
Below are facts and suggestions we have gathered from many resources, including the Monroe County Executive’s Office, Monroe County Sheriff’s Office (MCSO), Monroe County (MCDOT), Monroe Ambulance, local fire departments, etc.
  • The MCSO predicts that traffic on the day of the eclipse, and perhaps in the days leading up to and the day after, will be very heavy and to expect gridlock. We should all plan accordingly, including, being where you plan to observe the event as early as 8 am on April 8th, and expecting to stay there until 6-8 pm.
  • The MCSO will do its best to keep the volume of traffic moving on major area roads and will utilize drones to assess congestion or other issues. They have contracted with three towing services for the removal of disabled vehicles or those parked in restricted areas.
  • Area schools are closed for the day which will lessen the traffic.
  • Monroe Ambulance plans to have additional ambulances staged strategically and the fire departments plan to have personnel stationed at all firehouses.
  • Due to the volume of additional cell phone users in the area during this time, cell service may be limited. The MCSO has contracted with Verizon to provide an extra tower to help alleviate this problem.
  • The Town Clerk’s Office, Supervisor’s Office and Building Department, all located at Town Hall, will be open 8-noon; however, we ask that you postpone any routine business to another day. The Court will be closed. Our Assessor’s Office, located at Sweden Town Hall, will be open. The Highway Department will be managing the town parks and working closely with MCDOT and MCSO, where needed. All emergencies will be referred to 911.
  • Sans Soucie Park on the Erie Canal, Hafner Park on Lake Road, and Kimball Park on Ridge Road will be open, but the lodges will be closed. No special events are planned at any of the parks. The parking areas will be marked and managed by the Highway Department. Extra temporary bathrooms will be at each park. The Seymour Library will be open and offering special eclipse programs throughout the day. Please refer to the website for more information: https://seymourlibraryweb.org/. We encourage you to plan to walk to our parks or the library.
  • You may pick-up free eclipse glasses from the Town Hall while supplies last; two per household; must show proof of residency.
  • We are not providing ‘No Parking’ signs for residents.
  • We strongly suggest that you view Monroe County’s website which offers additional practical information, including, planning ahead to buy groceries, medications, etc., rescheduling personal appointments, and/or delaying any home deliveries on the days before or after April 8th. Also, make sure your vehicles are fueled and/or charged. https://www.monroecounty.gov/eclipse-2024.
  • Please continue to monitor the Town of Clarkson website at www.clarksonny.org, and its social media pages for any changes or updates. With a little pre-planning, we can all enjoy this spectacular event.
– Ursula Liotta, Supervisor, Town of Clarkson
