(Hamburg, NY) – New York State Senator Chris Jacobs announced that he has secured $350,000 in state funding for the Village of Hamburg. Funding will be used to revitalize Legion Field and improvements at the Hamburg Village Community Center and Glen Meadows Parks.
“The Village of Hamburg and its Parks and Recreation Department do a great job of providing Village residents of all ages with the opportunity to stay active in their community,” said Senator Chris Jacobs. “I was very pleased to secure this funding which will provide new and improved recreational facilities for the residents of the Village of Hamburg.”
A majority of the funds will be used toward the Legion Field revitalization project where the Village plans to reconstruct baseball diamonds, install new bathrooms, a concession stand and seating areas along with other upgrades. The funding will also be used to improve the Hamburg Village Community Center basketball court and the Glen Meadows Park tennis court. Finally, the funding is being used to transform one of the tennis courts at Glen Meadows Park into a roller hockey rink.
“Many thanks to Senator Jacobs for providing the funding for these projects,” said Village of Hamburg Mayor Thomas J. Moses, Sr. “The money will allow us to upgrade our community parks and provide quality facilities and services that the public has come to expect and enjoy in the Village of Hamburg.”
"The Village of Hamburg has a tagline which invites the public to come to discover, stay for the charm,” said Joshua Haieck, Recreation Supervisor. “Our Parks and Recreation Department is committed to ensuring that people of all ages come to discover the highest standard in municipal parks, facilities and overall quality of life. We are very grateful to have a partner like Senator Jacobs who shares our passion for parks and recreation, and a willingness to invest in these projects that will benefit taxpayers for decades to come."
