The Williamsville Water Mill Plaza, Spring Street and Rock Street all have a new look following the completion of a $3.45 million dollar project.

The project transformed the area into a new "village square" providing a public gathering space in the center of the village.

The work includes new sidewalks, roadway and curbing; benches, bicycle racks and lighting; buried utilities; ADA compliant crossings; enhanced parking; and thousands of planted bulbs, shrubs and trees.

The project also incorporated storm water management infrastructure features with permeable pavement and rain gardens. The planters are designed to to slow and clean water from coming from parking areas and drainage inlets before being discharged into the creek.
