  • Staff Report 

The Town of Canandaigua is set to continue its public hearing on the rezoning of German Brothers Marina on January 31. The property, currently in the Residential Lake District, could be transformed into a dynamic space with new amenities, if rezoned under the town’s incentive zoning law. The meeting will be held at Town Hall’s Onnalinda Conference Room at 6 p.m.


The proposed plan by new owner Peter Bruu includes numerous public benefits, such as creating parking spaces, enhancing pedestrian safety, providing public lakefront access, and building public restrooms. Bruu’s vision also involves removing boat storage from certain areas, reducing boat moorings, and adding retail spaces, a restaurant, and cottages. These changes aim to modernize the marina into a family-friendly destination, boosting local tourism and tax revenue.

Interested parties can view the detailed application on the town’s website and attend the meeting via Zoom with prior registration. This session follows previous hearings and seeks community input before the Town Board decides on rezoning and endorsing the proposed amenities.
