Chick Fil A Parking and Inner Loop Clean Up

By Terrence Dickey @Detron_J

Chick Fil A is asking all of its customers to remain from parking in the Mall at Greece Ridge a few days after it’s grand opening.

The new location in Greece brought in literally droves of new customers and they had an agreement with the mall for overflow parking which has now ended on Saturday, April 21.

Volunteers used Monday’s amazing weather to help clean the Inner Loop in Rochester as part of a statewide “Trash Blitz” which is in honor of Earth Day, which was April 22nd.

The Volunteers from the various city departments were getting rid of litter, sweeping the pavement and trying to keep our area clean.

Governor Andrew Cuomo has recently proposed a bill that would ban single-use plastic bags at any point of sale in New York.

The main premise of this bill is to help significantly reduce waste and litter in our world and spark other initiatives as well.

If passed, the bill would go into effect on January 1, 2019.

Chick-fil-A is coming closer to Brockport! The chain will open a store in Greece on April 12, according to a corporate spokesperson.

The Greece location, 2140 W. Ridge Road, had been looking for as many as 120 full- and part-time workers in preparation for the restaurant’s April opening. This is the second location to open in upstate New York.

An Amtrack train station in Rochester is being named after the late Congressperson Louise Slaughter. After Representative Slaughter passed away this past Friday. Governor Andrew Cuomo and Senators Chuck Schumer and Kirsten Gillibrand wrote Amtrack to urge them to rename The Rochester Intermodal Station after her. Slaughter fought for years to secure over 15 million dollars in federal funding for Amtrack.
