Bank Street closure on Friday
Written by WBTA STAFF on August 17, 2023
Genesee County and the City of Batavia are excited to announce the “Bank Street Pop-Up Demonstration” on Friday, August 18th, 2023, from 10 am to 2 pm between Main Street and Washington Avenue. This community-focused event, part of the Active People, Healthy Nation Walkability Virtual Academy, aims to gather public feedback to improve the street’s appearance and walkability. The insights collected will help guide the street design, crosswalk placements, and overall mobility.
To prepare for the event, parts of Bank Street will be temporarily closed to traffic from 7 am to 9 am on August 18th. Collaborations with local artists and businesses will enhance the demonstration’s visual appeal. Thank you to artists from GO ART! for painting attractive crosswalks, Batavia Turf for providing turf, and Pudgie’s Lawn & Garden for donating flowers.
The initiative marks a significant step towards a community that values well-being, physical activity, and safe, accessible streets. Come and share your thoughts to help shape a more vibrant neighborhood!
