In the Works: Bicycle Path

The Village is co-sponsoring a grant application for the development of a bike trail between the Villages of Sherman and Williamsville utilizing the utility right-of-way that runs between our two communities.  The path is envisioned to be a asphalt paved two lane path providing residents in our communities and surrounding area another recreation avenue.
