Fire, Police Facility Expands on Franklin

In Board of Trustees, Public Safety on July 26, 2016 at 2:27 pm

franklin st sub stationsThe Public Safety Building at 65 Franklin will soon get a major overhaul.

Three fire truck bays will be added.  The Police and Sheriff facilities will be remodeled. And there will be additional office space for Court services.

The fire fighting and EMT equipment have already been temporarily moved out of the building.  Police service space will be relocated as the construction begins inside the building.  By late fall, the three bay expansion will be made weather proof as the interior work continues through the winter.

This much needed renovation is needed to provide fire and police services to our Village. The plan was developed in conjunction with the Springville Volunteer Fire Department, the Erie County Sheriff, and the Springville Village Police.

The Springville Court functions, the Police and Sheriff operations, the Control Center dispatching, and the Village public meetings will continue through the construction.  Vehicle and Pedestrian access to the building will be clearly designated by signage.

Springville Rail Trail Opens Next Month

In Board of Trustees, Dept of Public Works, Uncategorized on July 26, 2016 at 12:36 pm

The Springville ‘Pop Warner’ Rail Trail will open this August.  Much of the construction work this summer has been to develop the trail from Waverly to West Main Street.  The Springville Community Foundation grant of $12,000 was use by the Village DPW to purchase benches, picnic tables, trees, and signage  to transform the discontinued rail road right of way into a multiuse trail.

As you walk on the trail, you will find the surface from Waverly to West Main St is rolled asphalt millings.  The rest of the trail in the Village is the compressed rail bed with just some ballast left behind from the demo work of the B&P RR.

Presently, the Village is waiting for NYSDOT approval of the cross walk across West Main which is route 39.  Regulatory signage will be installed soon.

The Pop Warner Steering Committee and the Village is planning a ribbon cutting ceremony in September.  The Springville trail will be the first secton of rail trail on the 27 mile discontinued rail line.  ECRT is close to gaining ownership of the entire section through the Federal rail banking process.20160607_104730.jpg
