PENFIELD, N.Y. (WROC) — If you’re driving around some of the public parks and tennis courts in Penfield, you’ll notice some shiny, new and weather-safe notice boxes. They’re the result of a local Eagle Scout project by Marco Costanzo.

Marco says he wanted to make sure his scout project focused on what the town really needed, and so he’d sought ways to help from the Department of Recreation.

“I remember I’d asked [the director] and he’d given me a few ideas, but kept coming back to notice boxes,” Marco shares with News 8’s Mikhaela Singleton.

“I feel proud. Kids my age, we have a lot of ideas, a lot of bright ideas, a lot of ambition to work to make the community a little better,” he continues.

He says he focused on using sustainable materials–which were harder to work with but worth the patience. After creating the boxes and design, he’s set up kits so other scouts can build more and help the town as well.

“Marco did a great job. We’re trying to communicate in a number of ways with our residents, so this is just one way we can reach them,” says Penfield Town Supervisor Jeff Leenhouts.
