Camillus Mall has really changed. It used to be an enclosed mall, now its a strip mall called Camillus Commons....

Pictures













Benderson Development did a great job of redeveloping the property IMO. It sat empty for years, glad its back on the tax rolls....

Fairmount Fair is undergoing a transformation as we speak.....pictures of the the Fairmount Fair shopping center....









Now Camillus residents don't need to travel all the way to the Town of Clay to shop at a Target etc.

Starlight Estates looks like a nice new housing development. Many patio homes along with a few single family homes. Saw a couple license plates from out-of-state in this neighborhood. One was with a moving van! Some people get excited about sports, I get excited when I see outsiders moving into our community.



































A few pictures of the main commercial areas in Camillus....

The homes, are fantastic! very beautiful design to them, very cozy feel. imo
Thanks for the time and effort spent and sharing a slice of your state with us.

You're welcome. If anyone was wondering, that farm in the picture above will always be farmland. Camillus and Onondaga have set aside acres of farmland that is "saved" from new suburban neighborhoods.

gandalf222, I hope you still visit the forums. I'm glad you asked me to take more Camillus pictures. I got to see areas I've never seen before and it makes me appreciate the town more.
