Village also wants feedback on logo, projects

HOLLEY — The village will be hosting a fall festival on Oct. 17 that also includes a chance to tour the old Holley High School, which is being turned into apartments and the offices for the village government.

The fall festival will be at the front lawn of the former school, 1 Wright St., from 3 to 7 p.m. Tours of the building will be on a first come, first served basis from 4 to 6:30 p.m.

Home Leasing, a Rochester company, started construction in November 2018 on a $17 million transformation of the former Holley High School, a building that has been vacant for more than two decades.

Home Leasing is turning the site into 41 senior apartments as well as the offices for the Village of Holley. The village expects to move the village offices into the former school in January.

Village officials also want to hear from the community about revitalization projects in Holley, as well as a new logo and tagline to promote the community.

The festival also includes a scarecrow decorating contest, with people encouraged to bring their own materials to dress a scarecrow between 3 and 6 p.m. Judging will be at 6:30 p.m. Participants need to preregister by Oct. 10 at saldrich@bergmannpc.com.

There also will be pumpkin decorating at the festival, with cider and donuts available.
