This morning, Greece Town Supervisor Bill Reilich was joined by 3rd Ward Councilman Michael Bloomer, Judge Vince Campbell, Commissioner of Public Works Kirk Morris, Greece Town Deputy Supervisor Michelle Marini, and Greece Town Historian Keith Suhr for the official unveiling of a historic marker in the Koda Vista neighborhood. Also present for the unveiling was Neighborhood Association member Jane Grant.
The Koda Vista neighborhood consists of around 250 homes in the southeast corner of Greece with a history spanning over ninety years. The original streets were planned Kodak Employees Realty Corporation in the mid-1920s and were settled primarily by Kodak Employees. In 1928, sixty of the early residents formed Koda Vista Community Association (KVCA). The neighborhood expanded after World War II and was part of the dramatic housing and population increase experienced town-wide. The Koda Vista neighborhood is unique in its early history and the variety of architectural styles, which can still be seen today. Today is our recognition of what this neighborhood represents in our rich history and in the strength and unity of our community.
“I was proud to unveil a historic marker recognizing the historical significance of the Koda Vista neighborhood today” said Supervisor Reilich. “Special thanks to Keith Suhr for securing the grant that helped make this historic marker installation possible and to Councilman Mike Bloomer, who represents the residents of this neighborhood”.
