Community Development Department

Despite the population decline in Western New York, the Town of Evans has experienced an increase in residential and commercial development over the past decade as a result of suburban migration to the Town from the Buffalo metropolitan communities; the conversion of lakefront seasonal residences to year-round residences; the attraction of the "rural type" features that the open space in Evans provides; and the affordability of the diverse housing stock.
