Greetings from Mayor Gee
Welcome to the historic Village of Scottsville’s website!
As Mayor of the Village of Scottsville, I'd like to welcome you and present to you the Village’s website. We stand committed to improving our citizens' and visitors' access to our community, and we hope you enjoy scrolling through our site to see all the valuable information that is available to you about our Village.
Whether you are a long-time resident, new to our community, or a virtual visitor, we believe you will share our sense of pride in our Village founded in 1789. We are the first settlement west of the Genesee River in New York State; we are located sixteen miles from the City of Rochester. Scottsville is well known for our world-class brown trout fishing on the Oatka Creek located on the Village’s southern border, and we welcome everyone to participate.
During your stay, be sure to visit our array of businesses. Have a bite to eat at one of our tempting eateries; or visit the beautiful Scottsville Free Library, proudly listed on the National Historic Registry. If nature is your thing, take a stroll down to Canawaugus Park, enjoy the scenery along Oatka Creek or hike/bike down the NYS Greenway Trail adjacent to the Canawaugus Park.
We are pleased to offer you this user-friendly website to showcase some of the opportunities available to you whether you are thinking about opening a business in Scottsville, relocating to Scottsville, or if you are already a citizen of Scottsville.
I hope our website provides you with beneficial information and assists you in understanding why we feel Scottsville is such a great community. We are dedicated to providing efficient quality service by working in partnership with individuals, neighborhoods, and businesses, to enhance the quality of life and to create a healthy, vibrant community in which to live, work and visit.
I, along with the Village Board and other employees, welcome you to the Village of Scottsville, New York.

Village of Scottsville to Apply for CFA Grant for Parks Development
The Village of Scottsville will be pursuing this summer’s NYS Consolidated Funding Application (CFA) Parks Development grant. On and off throughout the years, we have been asked about the parcel of land at the intersection of Grove and Rochester Street’s and its usage. This area is undeveloped, in the past, it was the location of a water tower. This area is the main entrance to the Village of Scottsville and should be showcased, highlighted and developed.
We are applying for a matching grant to develop a Founding Father’s Park to honor Isaac Scott, Peter Sheffer and Indian Allen, our founding fathers. As most of you know, Scottsville was the first white settlement west of the Genesee River and was originally settled by Indian Allen in 1782. This long overdue memorial park will include a gazebo, benches, sidewalks and a plaque. We believe that the development of this area will not only improve the landscape of Scottsville but also provide more green space. There is not guarantee that we will be awarded this grant, but like anything in life, it doesn’t hurt to try.
As more information becomes available, I will keep everyone informed. Thank you in advance for your support.
Mayor Paul F Gee
