Based on a review of the Town of Cheektowaga’s Comprehensive Plan, there is a need for more pedestrian and bicycle infrastructure and amenities to support the advancement of complete streets.
GObike has been contracted by Erie1 BOCES through the NYS Department of Health’s Creating Healthy Schools & Communities program to provide community outreach and engagement, programming and small-scale infrastructure interventions to advance the goal of the town to adopt a complete streets policy and provide a multi-modal transportation network to improve community health.
The current conditions at Cheektowaga Town Park present a great opportunity to begin a process that will facilitate a welcoming atmosphere for increased walking and cycling. There are already multiple existing facilities at Cheektowaga Town Park such as the Youth Center and Ice Rink which will benefit from upgrading the cycling and trail amenities. Improving the existing conditions at Cheektowaga Town Park will lay a foundation for improving access and mobility through the Town of Cheektowaga connecting residents to everyday destinations.
