The town of Seymour was awarded a $10,000 Preservation of Place grant from CMSC to develop a plan for a downtown riverwalk, reports the Valley Independent Sentinel. The money will be used to hire an architect to design a set route for the waterfront path. Once the plan is designed, the town will pursue funds to implement it.
“The proposed greenway trail and riverwalk will be a large and highly walkable attraction, appealing to families and nature enthusiasts, shoppers and diners,” said State Senator Rob Kane in a statement. “This project will not only be an economic asset to downtown Seymour, providing it with consumers that otherwise may look over our beautiful town, but will also be an asset to our local residents. The park and greenway will encourage healthy living and a pleasant social climate in Seymour.”
