The Genesee Valley Greenway State Park (GVGSP)
is one of hundreds of greenways being developed across the nation along old canals, abandoned rail beds, and riverbanks. It passes through scenic woodlands, river and stream valleys, rolling farmlands, steep gorges, and historic villages located in sixteen towns in Monroe, Livingston, Wyoming, Allegany, and Cattaraugus counties in New York State. http://www.nysparks.com/parks/189/details.aspx
Important Public Hearing on Greenway
Improvements in Monroe County
Tuesday, July 31, 7 PM
Wheatland Town Hall, 22 Main Street, Scottsville
Plan to attend this meeting to learn about State Park’s application for Federal grant funds to improve the GVG in Monroe County and provide feedback on the proposed project. Improvements will include establishing a stone dust trail between Scottsville’s Canawaugus Park and Ballantyne Road. The resurfaced trail will connect with the paved trail that currently exists between the CSX crossing at Scottsville Road and the Empire State Trail intersection at Rochester’s Genesee Valley Park. Grant funds will also be used to install wayfinding signage, mile markers, cross walks, and trail counters in this trail segment.
