Erie County Legislator John J. Mills is pleased to announce that the Western New York Southtowns Scenic Byway was recognized by the Legislature at its Nov. 7, 2013 session for its commitment to create and promote the Byway, thus bringing visitors to WNY and featuring the many gems located here. Byway President Bob Lennartz accepted the proclamation and was joined by Committee Members Ron Klinczar, Pat Lamonte, Springville Mayor Bill Krebs, Kim Bowers, Pat Keem and Dave Field. Members who were honored but not present were, Bill Even, Jim Bentley, Scott Kroll, Betty Chetney, Sherrie Pluta and Deborah Chimes.

 

The proclamation read: “the Erie County Legislature pauses in its deliberations to acknowledge, commend, and congratulate the Western New York Southtowns Scenic Byway organization for bringing to fruition their dream to give awareness of the many beautiful and historic sites we have within our own beautiful region of Western New York.”

 

The idea for the Byway was started in 2002 by Lennartz and today features historically significant sites and attractions in Aurora, Boston, Colden, Concord, East Aurora, Orchard Park and Springville. For information about the Scenic Byway, please visit www.wnyssb.org.
