Livability Task Force Committee

About the College Area Livability Task Force

The City of Geneva is taking another step in the continuing effort of improving livability, quality of life, and neighborhood revitalization.

For the past eight years, conversations between the city and the colleges have led to a number suggestions to overcome challenges in neighborhoods surrounding Hobart and William Smith.  On April 6, 2016, City Council resolved to create a new task force that will address livability issues in areas surrounding the colleges and to implement actions and facilitate solutions.

“This represents the next step in City Council’s commitment to revitalization of Geneva’s neighborhoods and capitalizing on partnerships with our residents, HWS, and City Departments. We are excited to commence with this solutions-driven effort,” said City Manager, Matt Horn.

Who Is On The Task Force?

The task force will consist of the First-Ward and At-Large City Counselors, the City Manager, Chief of Police, Director of Neighborhood Initiatives, and a representative from the HWS President’s Office. Stakeholders are seeking residents from Historic South, Founders Square and Historic South to participate in the task force and provide their insight on livability issues.

Residents who live in Historic South, Founders Square and South Lake who are interested in applying or have suggestions for consideration should contact Doris Myers, City Clerk, at 315-789-2603 or by email at
