Funds to be used to improve area around local train station
This week, Assemblyman Brian Curran awarded Malverne with $100,000 in state funding to assist with improvements at Westwood Park at Westwood Train Station. The village will be replacing the walkways around the perimeter of the park that leads directly to the station’s parking lot. The funds have been awarded through the State and Municipal Facilities (SAM) Program.
“The Village of Malverne is looking to make improvements at Westwood Train Station,” said Curran. “Westwood Park is used by many residents and visitors alike, so the village is looking to upgrade the walkways to ensure the safety of those at the station, as well as to beautify one of the entry points to our community. I am proud to award this grant to the Village of Malverne.”
“We are extremely grateful to Assemblyman Brian Curran for his hard work in obtaining funding for the Village of Malverne,” said Malverne Mayor Patricia McDonald. “These funds will be used to enhance the pathways at Westwood Park that will directly benefit all of our residents for years to come.”
The village applied for the SAM grant with the assistance of Assemblyman Curran to help offset the costs of this project in an effort to limit the burden on local taxpayers.
