During a work session meeting Monday Town of Lockport Supervisor Marc Smith said the highway department would begin hauling fill for a parking lot at Lytle Park.

The park’s lot, located on North Canal Road, will be expanded in the spring. An almost two-mile walking trail will also be created next year and include a 400-foot boardwalk section through the wetland area of the park.

In other town news:

• The town will soon vote to abandon a portion of Crown Drive. Yahoo! recently purchased an additional 12-acres of land in the industry park to expand their existing facility.

As part of the project, their building would cross over part of the existing roadway.

• Councilman Paul Siejak announced that in the first 9 month of 2012, town residents have recycled 26,590 pounds of electronic waste. The town has received $1,725 for the program.

A shed is located behind the town hall for residents to drop off old electronics.

• The Town of Lockport will hold their Winter Wonderland event on Nov. 25 from noon to 3 p.m. at Day Road Park.

The park’s light display will also be turned on during the event.

The event is part of the Christmas on the Canal weekend.

“It’s going to be a nice family event,” said Councilwoman Cheryl Antkowiak.
