The Niagara River Greenway Commission is seeking public comment on two projects in Erie County that have applied for Greenway funding.
The Buffalo Lighthouse Association is seeking $825,000 to renovate the 110-year-old South Entrance Light at Stony Point Breakwater in Buffalo Harbor.
The association said saving that lighthouse, when combined with its nearly complete restoration of the 1833 lighthouse at the north end of the harbor, would provide “bookends” for outer harbor redevelopment.
The $2.27 million West River Connector Trail, sought by the state and Town of Grand Island, would create an eight-mile multipurpose trail on state-owned land connecting Beaver Island and Buckhorn Island state parks, alongside West River Parkway.
Comments are due by Aug. 31 at www.niagaragreenway.org or by mail to the commission offices, 2136 W. Oakfield Road, Grand Island, NY 14072.
