Community Development

Main Street in Angola
Town Of Evans, NY

Our Community

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. Our waterfront location has also made the Town a popular spot for tourism and recreation, especially during the summer months.

About Us

The Town of Evans is located approximately 20 miles southwest of the Buffalo metropolitan area, and is considered a rural community with the benefit of 12 miles of waterfront. The Town is located in geographic proximity to the major trading centers of the Northeast and is a bi-national gateway for commerce due to our region's border location with Canada.

In addition to the Thruway (Exit 57A - Eden/Angola), east west access is facilitated by New York State Route 5 and US Route 20. We are less than an hour from the city of Buffalo.
