YES! - Bike Path on West River
The state Office of Parks, Recreation & Historic Preservation plan calls for the closure of West River Parkway to motor vehicles and transformation of it into a bike trail.
The trail on Grand Island, which would stretch from Beaver Island State Park to Buckhorn State Park, would complete a large bike and walking path from Buffalo to Niagara Falls,
Sadly, the Town Board voted 3-2 to not support the state park’s bike bath proposal. The impact of this vote is unclear, because we do not have jurisdiction over state land. They can use it however they wish.
We are all proud of the changes to the Buffalo waterfront. We need to extend those changes to Grand Island with a green path along our river. Help Grand Island. Contact the town board and tell them they are not representing your interests. Tell them we want to bike and walk safely with our families along the river.
Please sign this petition if you are a Grand Island Resident and want this project, then share this on Facebook, in email, on Twittter, snapchat, instagram, reddit, on messenger. We need everyone who wants this project to sign this. Our voices are needed to prove the town board that they DO NOT speak for the majority of Islanders.
Imagine...No more 55 mile an hour vehicles (more like 65-70) flying past families on bikes just a foot away. A SAFE, wide, walking and biking path for the entire Island to enjoy.
