Salisbury-Dolgeville Greenway begins to take shape

A $11,950 New York State Department of Health Creating Healthy Places to Live, Work and Play grant from Herkimer County HealthNet recently awarded to the Village of Dolgeville is aiding the development of the first section of the Salisbury-Dolgeville Greenway within the village. According to village Department of Public Works Superintendent John Houle, the trail will be a safe and secure place where people can get out and walk, jog or ride their bicycle and snowmobile in the winter.

Seven years ago, as part of its Healthy Trails Healthy People program, PTNY helped residents of the Herkimer County village examine the issues and opportunities associated with creation of a 2.8-mile rail trail between the village and Salisbury Center and drafted a Next Steps Report. Congratulations to Dolgeville for securing the funds and moving forward with this project.
