Fair Haven

Welcome to the Village of Fair Haven SignOnly one letter away from heaven, Fair Haven is a delightful village surrounding Little Sodus Bay. The Village of Fair Haven has changed from a shipping port to a resort community and features some of the best fishing, swimming, boating and camping in New York State.

It has been said that the Fair Haven sunset is rivaled in beauty only by those in Japan. Maybe you should come and take a look...and another and another...

Dear Friend,

As your New York State Senator, I am continuing to work with my partners at the state and federal level to repeal Plan 2014. Although, I do not vote on the appointment of IJC members as your State Senator, I am working with the Governor to sue the IJC for repeal of Plan 2014. You can be assured that I will continue to lead this fight. The plan has been a disaster for the communities I represent and I have seen firsthand the untold devastation it has caused.

There is some important information regarding state assistance for secondary homeowners. As you may know, the state made funding available for owners of primary residents earlier this year. Now, funding has opened up for secondary homeowners. This information can be found here. Please note the deadline is December 10th. I am hopeful that you will take the time to share this information with any of your neighbors who might qualify.

As always, please do not hesitate to contact me if I can ever be of assistance to you or your family.

Best Regards,

Pamela A. Helming
Senator, 54th District


Millions coming to Cayuga County shoreline as part of REDI effort led by Gov. Cuomo

  • $2,700,000 for the West Bay Road Storm Sewers Project in the Town of Sterling will install 1.8 miles of storm sewer to collect and manage stormwater along West Bay Road, addressing significant erosion and sediment carried into the bay.
  • $1,600,000 for the Sterling Nature Center Trail and Parking Area Project in the Town of Sterling to upgrade the Sterling Nature Center. The project will minimize impacts from Lake Ontario by using porous pavement, sidewalks, rain gardens, wetlands, and more, and will restore McIntyre Road, the only access point for emergency responders to this section of lakeshore.
  • $1,500,000 for the Phillips Park Walkway Project in the Village of Fair Haven to remove an existing boardwalk, repair and replace a retaining wall, install appropriate anchors, and construct a new boardwalk in compliance with ADA standards. The boardwalk will be used for fishing and other recreational uses.
  • The $1,500,000 Ontario Shores Drive Project in the Town of Sterling will move, raise, and repave .6 miles of dirt road, ensuring residents and emergency responders have access to homes along the beach.
  • The $600,000 West Barrier Bar Park Project in the Village of Fair Haven will protect the park and ensure public access by repaving the asphalt roadway and the parking lot. Increasing the resiliency of this roadway and the park are critical to protecting a nearby marina on the barrier bar.

A questionnaire has been developed that allows impacted shoreline property owners to report directly on their experiences in 2019. The questionnaire includes opportunities to describe the types and extent of their high water impacts, as well as upload photos to illustrate those impacts. Responses will be summarized by the GLAM Committee as part of its reporting to the ILOSLRB and the IJC and will also be used to improve models that are used to assess potential impacts under a range of water level conditions.  Property owners are encouraged to complete the questionnaire as soon as the extent of their high water impacts are available.
