$50,000 Grant for Pedestrian Safety Presented to Town of Ramapo by Assemblyman Lawler
By M.C. Millman
A grant earmarked for pedestrian safety was announced this afternoon during a press conference in front of the Satmar Shul on the corner of Maple Avenue and Monsey Boulevard in Monsey.
The award of $50,000 announced by Assemblyman Mike Lawler, who was able to secure the funding from last year’s State budget for the Town of Ramapo, will be used to put up a guard rail at the intersection to keep pedestrians safe.
“I am excited to be here today and present the Town of Ramapo with the 50,000 multimodal grant,” Lawler shared with Rockland Daily. “These multimodal grants typically go towards critical projects like pedestrian safety. Certainly, in the Town of Ramapo, we know lots of people are walking, especially on Shabbos, so we want to make sure people are safe, especially with traffic flow. This $50,000 will go towards improving the sidewalks and pedestrian safety in the Town of Ramapo.”
“We want to do all we can to make this the safest town possible,” Town of Ramapo Supervisor Michael Specht said during the press conference. “I want to thank Assemblyman Lawler for always working for us, always working to make Ramapo a better, safer place, and being a partner with us as we try to do so.”
