What about renovating the old Austin Arena?

We looked at approximately 20 sites in and around the village and were particularly interested in sites that are close to centers of activity (e.g., schools, downtown including the Fennell Street corridor, the YMCA and Austin Park) while offering easy access for all of the school district’s 9,000 residents.

Many factors contributed to 75 Fennell Street rising to the top of our list, such as lot size, location and zoning. Because Austin Park is zoned municipal parkland, converting any site within it to another use would involve significant legal costs and a lengthy process requiring legislation enacted by the State Legislature and approved by the Governor. Additionally, the Town Board is committed to maintaining Austin Park’s green space.
