Springville residents to provide input on new park, recreational trail

Springville residents will have the opportunity to offer their opinions about a planned park and recreational trail.

During a session scheduled for 10 a.m. Feb. 20 in the Municipal Building, 65 Franklin St., residents and officials will walk through the planned park site at Park and Factory streets. Residents may suggest where benches, picnic tables and other amenities should be located.

Village officials also set a session for 10 a.m. Feb. 27 that will start in the Department of Public Works building at Nason Boulevard and Waverly Street. Residents and officials will then head outside for a tour of the area being converted from a railroad into a recreational trail for biking, jogging and walking.

Anyone may suggest locations for bicycle racks, benches, picnic tables and signs in the rails-to-trails area.

“There is a large slab of asphalt we could probably repurpose,” Mayor William J. Krebs said.

In another matter, the board promoted William J. Goss to operator of heavy equipment in the Department of Public Works Streets Division

Board members also named Connie Bochenek, Henrietta G. Rosenswie and Jane F. Neureuther as elections inspectors. Neureuther will serve as chairwoman.

Krebs also thanked the Springville-Griffith Institute Community Foundation for a $12,500 donation to the rails-to-trails project.
