GOSHEN — The Village of Goshen will receive a $75,000 grant for the construction of new sidewalks on Greenwich Avenue in the Village.

The sidewalk is in disrepair and can be hazardous in inclement weather. By reconstructing the sidewalk, pedestrians will be able to travel safely to the commercial corridor on Matthews Street from downtown. The project will also improve village's look and may attract economic development.

NYS Senator John J. Bonacic (R/C/I-Mt. Hope) said the grant was secured through the State Municipal Facilities Program.

"The Village of Goshen is extremely thankful to Senator Bonacic for providing this opportunity to increase safety and walkability," Village of Goshen Mayor Kyle Roddey said. "By constructing new sidewalks on Greenwich Ave, it will facilitate economic development and improve pedestrian safety."

Bonacic said "this grant will improve public safety, help with economic development, and save Village of Goshen taxpayers money.”
