Welcome to Dansville, NY
A message from Peter R. Vogt,
Mayor of Dansville, NY
Nestled at the southern end of the Canaseraga Valley, an arm of the Genesee Valley, the Village of Dansville is the southern gateway to rural Livingston County and a major junction of highways providing direct access to the Rochester Metropolitan Area, the western edge of New York’s Finger Lake Region, the Southern Tier and a wide range of outdoor venues. On behalf of the Village, I welcome you to our website and encourage you to visit our community to enjoy our hospitality, recreational facilities, businesses and historical sites. The first local chapter of the American Red Cross was founded here and the Village was a terminus of a branch of the former Genesee Valley Canal. The community also hosts many festivals, including the Dogwood Festival in May and the New York State Festival of Balloons over the Labor Day weekend. Interstate 390 has two ramps (4 and 5) exiting directly into our community, an excellent general aviation airport is situated on the edge of the Village, four state highways pass through or terminate here, and a branch line of the Genesee and Wyoming Railroad is adjacent to our business/industrial park. The community also has a wide-range of social, civic and athletic organizations/facilities (including a nine-hole golf course in the Village); a fish and game club (400 members); numerous churches; a central business district that is undergoing significant redevelopment; a burgeoning business corridor near the airport and I-390’s exit 5; and numerous municipal parks and a nearby (two miles) state park. We have an excellent public school system and a public library that is currently undergoing major expansion. The Village has many vintage and modern homes as well. So come and look us over; I am certain you will find the community a great place to live and raise a family. We see our future as bright and ask you to consider Dansville as an opportunity to open a business.

** Flood Insurance Subscribers: WHEC Channel 10, Rochester, recently ran a segment on an insurance comapny in California which has provided at least one property owner in the Town of Gates with substantially lower priced insurance underwritten by Lloyd's of London. While this product sounds good and seems to be benefiting the homeowner in Gates, the Village of Dansville does not endorse it. This information is being provided as only a possible avenue for reducing insurance. Property owners should be thorough in researching this product. For additional information, go to WHEC's website or www.nobsfloodinsurance.com. The Channel 10 site has a video and transcript of the segment. **
