Mayor Domenic J. Sarno has been notified by Governor Charlie Baker and Lt. Governor Karyn Polito of a MassTrails Grant for $300,000 for our McKnight Community Rail Trail Project.
Mayor Sarno stated, “I am very appreciative of Governor Baker’s administration’s continued friendship and support of our Springfield and myself. I look forward to continuing to work with our McKnight neighborhood residents and advocates with special thanks going to Liz Stevens and Walter Kroll, our City Departments, City Council and our local state delegation on this enhanced ‘quality of life’ bike/walkway collaboration. We will be using this money for our design phase. We’re also very thankful for the $200,000 from our Community Preservation Act (CPA) allocation too. These types of recreational family projects are very near and dear to my heart.”
