About the Village
Welcome to the Village of Victor Government
Whether you are a village resident, a visitor, or someone simply seeking information on our community, we are pleased you have chosen to visit our website. Let us take a moment to acquaint you with the Village of Victor.
The Village is a six-mile square piece of land in the heart of the town. We were incorporated as a village in 1879, and as of the 2020 Census had a population of 2,744. Located among rolling glacial hills in northwest Ontario County, three miles south of NYS Thruway Exit 45, and midway (20 minutes either direction) between Rochester and Canandaigua Lake and the Finger Lakes Region, we are ideally located for a modest commute to work or ideal summer and winter recreation destinations.
A strong sense of community exists within the Village of Victor, as is evidenced by the work and activities of our various governmental boards and agencies. Although these groups provide direction and leadership, their policies are implemented on a day-to-day basis by a cadre of highly skilled and dedicated employees in our Village Office and Department of Public Works.
We hope you will return and continue to use this website as a source of community information. Should you have suggestions or comments, email us or stop in for an old-fashioned personal visit.
- Am I a Town or Village resident?
All Village residents are also Town residents, but as a Village resident, you have services available to you that town residents do not.
Please see the "Find out if I live in the Village" page.
- Where can I pay my Village Tax bill?
Village Tax payments are accepted in the Village Clerk’s office located at the Village Hall: 60 East Main Street, Victor. No partial payments will be accepted. Any Canandaigua National Bank branch will accept full payments in person during the month of June only. Please see the Village Tax Collection page for more details.
- Where do I go to get a building permit?
There are two municipal code enforcement agencies – the village and the town. The location of the site determines where you should go for information and permits. If you live in the Town outside the Village, contact the Town Building Department at 742-5035. If you live in the Village, contact the Village Hall at 924-3311.
- When do I need a building permit?
Always contact the appropriate town or village agency to determine if you need a permit before you begin work. You are required to obtain permits for new construction, remodeling, sheds, pools decks and pole barns; and in some instances driveway construction and fences. Please see the Village Building Department page for more information.
- How do I find out what my property is zoned?
Check with the appropriate code enforcement agency, Village or Town. Properties within the Village limits, call the Village Hall at (585) 924-3311. Please see the Village Maps page for the zoning map.
If you live in the Town but outside the Village, contact the Planning and Zoning office at 742-5040 or the Assessment office at 742-5010.
