Cambria to seek Greenway, NYS Parks funding

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — CAMBRIA — The town of Cambria will apply for two grants to finance the construction of a comfort station in the town park. 

The town board unanimously passed a resolution at its monthly meeting Thursday to apply for grants from the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, which offers matching grants for the planning and improvements of parks under its Environmental Protection Fund (EPF) municipal grant, and for Niagara River Greenway funding. 

Designs for the project have been approved by the town board, and the total cost for the project is not to exceed $400,000. 

Town Supervisor Wright Ellis said that the Greenway funding should provide the bulk of the money for the New York State Parks department to match. 

The application for the NYS Parks Department will be sent in Monday, and the Greenway funding application will go in soon after, Ellis said. 

The town board is also planning on meeting with a security company next week to discuss the possibility of placing remote security cameras in the park to deter vandalism. 

Councilman Matt Foe said the cameras would give the town an edge on stopping vandals by taking license plate information of people entering the park. 

"We're at risk because we keep our gates open until dusk, which is around 9 p.m. in the summer," Foe said. 

The board also passed a resolution to accept the resignation of town assessor Janelle Kroening. 

"She's done a great job in her years here," Ellis said. 

The town is looking for a new assessor to fill the open position. Interested candidates can send their resumes to Cambria Town Hall, 4160 Upper Mountain Road, Sanborn, or call 433-8523 for more information.
