    Wasn't there a quarry on Billo Rd?

    On Buffalo Niagara homes website, there are 4 lots for sale on Billo Rd in Alden near Genesee St. The map view of these lots show alot of blue.

    Wasn't there a quarry there at one time?

    It will interesting to see if the Town of Alden will approve a sub-division there.

    It states this in the description of the property-
    "LOTS ARE BEING SURVEYED & SALE IS SUBJECT TO TOWN APPROVAL OF SUBDIVISION. "

    I think that what they mean, is that it's currently a much larger lot (say it's 20 acres,) and it will be subdivided into 5-acre parcels (4 in that example.)
    In order to do that, you must get permission from the local municipality.

    Okay, I get it "sub-divide" a parcel as oppose to a sub-division as in everywhere in Lancaster.

    Thanks

    What would be an issue for new home owners if there used to be a quarry there?

    With all the blue in the maps it makes the properties look water laden.

    Like every where else 10-15 years down the road there will be complaints of cracked basements etc.

    I'll have to do a drive-by to satisfy my curiosity.

    I don't know about a quarry issue, but the Erie County Sheriffs Range, pistol/rifle/shotgun/SWAT, is less then 1/2 mile from Bilo Rd.
    If it weren't for the United States Military, there would be NO United States of America !

    little over 2500 feet? I believe... could be wrong... but couldn't a bullet travel that far? Or is it an indoor range?

    Easily, it's an outdoor range, very high berms...

    It's been there for quite a few years, local, state, and federal PD's train there.
