Where we live: West Seneca

West Seneca

Funding for road reconstruction projects in the town is part of the Erie County Consortium’s 2015 Community Development Block Grant application, the county executive announced last week.

If approved, $100,000 would go toward the reconstruction of Westcliff, Woodlane and Chamberlin drives. The county’s application, to be submitted to the federal Department of Housing and Urban Development, identifies projects in nine communities, as well rural transit services in various communities, totaling approximately $1.15 million.

The consortium consists of 34 municipalities, generally located outside of the City of Buffalo and the first-ring suburbs. Its 14-member selection committee reviewed 30 proposed projects seeking roughly $2.7 million in federal funds.
