Senator Charles Schumer was in Greece Wednesday at 12:45 p.m. promoting funding for the Braddock Bay Restoration Project. The plan includes building a new barrier beach near the Manitou Road location to protect local wetlands, as well as opening new boating channels to the marina.
Senator Schumer says the improvement will boost property value of homes along Lake Ontario and restore game fishing to the area.
Senator Schumer is calling on the Environmental Protection Agency to fund the $9 million project, which would be carried out by the Army Corps of Engineers.
