SHERBURNE – The Village of Sherburne is trying to help area residents incorporate walking into their daily routine, and with some help from a federal grant, they are one step closer to their goal.
Sherburne was one of the villages awarded funding for the Safe Routes to Schools grant.
The New York State Department of Transportation awarded $27 million in funding for the program, which is intended to “promote healthy transportation alternatives,” according to a press release.
Sherburne applied for the grant in March. The proposal focused on walking routes on Classic Street, which Mayor William Acee said at the time, had become a popular pedestrian route for children and adults alike.
