Tonawanda News — “We are not impacting the city’s infrastructure and we were able to demonstrate that to the DEC,” he said. “Being a good neighbor means you don’t just put on other people’s property.”

Kenyon also said that the site’s detention pond, which residents took issue with, is only temporary and will be removed by the end of construction. 

He also addressed Ranney’s concern about a bus loop that will be built directly behind her home. At the board’s last meeting, Ranney expressed her worry that the buses and fumes would make her backyard unpleasant. 

Kenyon said the contractor on the job will plant 23 spruce trees behind the properties that will serve as a noise buffer and provide privacy. 

Gloria Ciminelli, of Pike Co., also provided an update on the construction of the football stadium. The turf has been installed and will be complete by Thursday, ahead of schedule, she said. 

The foundations for the concessions stand and the restrooms have also been laid, and work on foundations for the bleachers has begun. 

“We have also made the first step in constructing the track by installing the asphalt,” Ciminelli said. 

Summer work will begin June 24th, and will include work on Riverview’s roof as well as construction inside the middle and high school complex.
