Erie Canal Improvement Plan
The town and village have been working together for many years to help make the historic Erie Canal corridor an amenity for residents as well as visitors to community. This work has benefitted from the support of several partner agencies, including the New York State Department of State Division of Coastal Services and the New York State Canal Corporation as well as many other agencies and organizations. Monroe County was a leader in creating the Erie Canal Heritage Trail along the former tow path, one of the early visionary actions that set the stage for continued enhancements. As a result of these and many other public and private investments, Pittsford’s canal corridor is one of the jewels of the state canal system and has become an increasingly popular place for local residents to enjoy a wide variety of activities that are enhanced by the attractive canal-front setting.
