Senator Samra Brouk Announces $396K State Grant to Town of Pittsford for Infrastructure Improvements
PITTSFORD, NY — State Senator Samra Brouk (SD-55) announces a $396,000 grant secured by her office for Pittsford infrastructure improvement projects. The funding will help the Town with road repaving projects ($246,000) on Briar Patch Road and Briar Patch Circle, San Rafael Drive, Sylvania Road, Country Club Road / Edith Street and Old Linden Ave; and sidewalk projects ($150,000) along Tobey and French Roads.
State Senator Samra Brouk said, "I have been a fierce advocate for our local communities in Albany during the state budget process, and this $396K grant for the Town of Pittsford is just the latest example of what I’ve been able to deliver for the residents of the 55th Senate District. Investing in our transportation system improves the quality of life in a community by improving mobility, safety and access for community members. This funding comes at an important moment in history when we are reimagining our systems and streets to prioritize people—pedestrians and bicyclists. I am proud of the strides we are making in the New York Senate to make better investments in the Greater Rochester community to help families, workers, and businesses in this region thrive.”
Pittsford Town Supervisor Bill Smith said, “I can't thank Senator Brouk enough for reaching out to me about SAM grant funding, speaking with me about Pittsford's request and fully funding it. Through it, the Senator's making a real difference for our Town and is helping me to carry out continual improvement for our residents.”
Today’s grant announcement for Pittsford is in addition to the budget investments that Senator Brouk was able to secure for Senate District 55 in the 2021-22 Enacted State Budget. $89,722,134 in Aid and Incentives for Municipalities (AIM) program funds;, $15,771,781 in Consolidated Local Street and Highway Improvement Program (CHIPS) funding (21.28% increase); and $2,773,312 in extreme Winter Recovery (EWR) (53.85% increase).
