Projects and Initiatives banner graphic

The Towns of Amherst and Tonawanda have initiated a joint community planning project in the Willow Ridge and Parkview Triangle neighborhoods. The aim is to develop an Action Plan for these neighborhoods to address various problems and create opportunities to improve connectivity, recreation, building maintenance and pedestrian safety. The Plan will serve as a guiding document to portray the future vision of the area. The Towns will employ the Action Plan to update Comprehensive Plan policies, create new goals and objectives, and utilize implementation strategies to create a more vibrant, connected and safe inter-municipal community.
