TOWN OF CAMILLUS HOUSING AUTHORITY
The Town of Camillus Housing Authority is a Public Authority of the State of New York created by the State Legislature as Chapter 615 Section 1 of the Laws of 1982. It was codified as Title 159 Section 564 of the Public Housing Law of the State of New York.
The Town of Camillus Housing Authority was created, at the request of the Camillus Town Board, with a mandate to provide, or assist in providing, quality housing for low to moderate income seniors, families and the disabled in the Town of Camillus. The Housing Authority has the legal authority to purchase and sell real estate, issue bonds, develop housing projects, and assist and support other entities to accomplish the same. To date, the Town of Camillus Housing Authority has been instrumental in the acquisition of the land for, and the development of, two public housing projects in the Town of Camillus, to wit, Applewood Manor, the 24 unit senior housing facility next to St. Joseph’s Church on West Genesee Street, and Connelly Acres, the 2 building complex for seniors and families on Maple Drive in the Village of Camillus.
The Housing Authority is run by seven unpaid but dedicated volunteer members, all of whom must be residents of the Town of Camillus. Members are appointed by the Town Board of the Town of Camillus for five year staggered terms.
The Housing Authority meets at the Camillus Town Hall at 5:00 p.m. on the second Wednesday of each month. Public input, attendance and comment is welcome and encouraged.
