Southampton Town Is Awarded Sizeable NY State Economic Development Grants To Help Proceed With Two Major Projects

As part of New York Governor Andrew Cuomo’s Regional Economic Development Council’s initiative Southampton Town is awarded close to $800,000.00 to help fund two major projects that have long been under consideration. 

$387,484.00 will help the Town proceed with design plans and construction funding for the Riverside Maritime Trail Park along the Peconic River.  The Park will improve access to the Riverfront with walking trails.  The project will advance the Town’s Coastal Resources and Water Protection Plan by improving waterfront access, removing invasive species and vegetation, protecting natural resources and supporting downtown revitalization.  “The grant could not come at a more perfect time, as we are ready to issue RFP’s for design plans for Riverside Park after months of planning with the Community,” said Supervisor Jay Schneiderman.

The Town will also receive $410,000.00 for the Alewife Creek Culvert Right Sizing Project.  The culvert is located under Noyac Road at North Sea Road.  The project will restore proper water flow through Alewife Creek.  This work will allow for the passage of additional water during storm events and as sea level rises.  It will also allow for the migration of alewife’s, a fish species important to the local economy.    “We are happy that we were awarded the grant and we look forward to the road ahead,” said Southampton Highway Superintendent Alex Gregor.
