Former Seneca Lake Country Club rezoned for agriculture

The Geneva Town Board has approved the rezoning of a portion of the former Seneca Lake Country Club property to allow for agricultural use.


The Finger Lakes Times reports that 120 acres previously designated as a planned unit development will now support farming activities. The decision was made following a public hearing where the rezoning received community backing and no opposition.

The property, acquired by local resident Chester Burkholder from the Missick family, had seen little development since initial plans for a new golf course and related facilities in 2016. Despite efforts that began in 2018, the renovations remained incomplete, prompting the recent shift back to agricultural zoning.
