Village OKs Plan for Main Street Enhancements

New banners for Main Street, better parking on the Roycroft Campus, new signs welcoming visitors to East Aurora, improvements to local alleys—the East Aurora Village Board recently heard about these changes, which are to be paid for through the federal Transportation Enhancement Program. If all goes according to plan, the work will be completed by the fall.

Administered by the New York State Department of Transportation, the Transportation Enhancement Program (TEP) allows local organizations to be reimbursed for improvement projects in certain categories. What is officially known as the “Village of East Aurora and Roycroft Campus Scenic Beautification and Pedestrian Access Improvement Project” met with state approval in late 2006. The village gave its initial authorization in the summer of 2008, and the engineering firm was selected in the spring of 2009. Now that the early design, planning and engineering efforts are done, the project is expected to speed up.

The TEP will reimburse $755,141 of the project’s costs, with the village and the Roycroft Campus Corporation covering the remainder.
