GLENVILLE, N.Y. -- Glenville pedestrians will soon have easier access to shops in town thanks to a plan for new sidewalks along Route 50.
An informational meeting was held Wednesday for the public to explain the plan.
The new ADA compliant sidewalks are the start of the $1.2 million Town Center Beautification Project. Historic street lighting, new trees and plants, re-painted crosswalks and pedestrian crossing signs are all part of the plan.
Glenville Town Supervisor Christopher Koetzle said the community has been trying for years to get sidewalks in the area.
Koetzle said, "I think it will make our commercial corridor more walkable and thereby really bring people in to a destination point and we're very hopeful and we think that people will come to the town center and shop."
The project, mostly state funded by grants, is set to begin next fall.
