J. O’Connell & Associates is pleased to announce through our services that the Village of Franklinville and the Town of Grand Island have been awarded Federal Recreational Trails Program funding:
Village of Franklinville $59,467
The Village of Franklinville, in conjunction with the Town of Franklinville, will create a motorized and non-motorized diverse trail linking the Village and Case Lake Park. The project will provide a recreation resource for hikers, pedestrians, equestrians, and bicyclists in the warmer months and for snowmobiles exclusively in the winter.
Town of Grand Island $86,963
The Town of Grand Island will construct a 1,460-foot paved pathway connecting the Island Meadows subdivision to the existing paved trail system in Veteran’s Park, increasing accessibility, especially for handicapped residents, to all amenities within Veteran’s Park.
This funding was secured through the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation Recreational Trails Program.
