Village of Williamsville - Community Plan


NYS Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation EPF Grants

The Village is beginning work on the final project, with funding received through an Environmental Protection Fund grant from the NYS Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation (NYSOPRHP).  Just under $500,000 of work will be completed over the next six months, with 50% of funding from NYSOPRHP and 50% funding from the Village of Williamsville.  Work to be done includes structural improvements in the north wing, roof reconstruction, foundation repairs, window and door restoration or replacement, carpentry work and exterior painting, repointing of the stone foundation and chimney, improvements to the stone walls, installation of new underground electrical services and replacement of the main electrical panel, replacement of existing grilles for inflow and outflow openings with new assemblies, drainage improvements, and the possible reconstruction of the sluiceway.  The design specifications are being completed by Flynn Battaglia Architects, and are based on the Historic Structures Report completed in 2006 (see below).  The project is expected to be bid out in the spring of 2014, with work being completed during the 2014 construction season.   

Two other EPF grants were also received through NYS Office of Parks, Recreation, and Historic Preservation, totaling $400,000, in addition to an acquisition grant for $150,000.

Historic Structures Report

In 2006, the Village of Williamsville completed an historic structures report on the Williamsville Water Mill. This project was funded by Preserve New York, a grant program of the Preservation League of New York State and the New York State Council on the Arts. Funding from the grant provided approximately half of the funding for the project.
