After Canandaigua City Council acted quickly to rename an island on Canandaigua Lake – another local town board postponed any action on it.
The Canandaigua Town Board postponed a vote indefinitely, which would have renamed ‘Squaw Island’.
It’s a derogatory term, which has been featured in two recent stories as part of our deep-dive series.
Members of the community who are pushing for the island to be renamed spoke to the board. They anticipated a vote, but instead received an indefinite delay.
They agreed to vote on a new version of the resolution at a later date, but did not indicate when that would be.
Check out the story below from when Canandaigua City Council voted in support of the name change.
