Welcome to Springville

Home of Glenn “POP” Warner, Architect of Modern Day Football

The Village of Springville 

is a rural community located 45 minutes southeast of Buffalo in Western New York within the southern tip of Erie County.  The Village of Springville is fully encompassed by the Town of Concord and is surrounded by an environment of beautifully wooded hillsides, dramatic stream valleys and very productive farmland.  This quaint Village is nestled in the foothills of the Alleghany Mountains. New York State (NYS) Route 39 crosses the rural setting from east to west and US Route 219 crosses from north to south. Springville’s location at the crossroads of these important routes makes it a natural center for services. Along with the Village’s close proximity to Cattaraugus Creek and its tributaries, the location created opportunities for many early factory, trade and service businesses. To this day, the Village has maintained a historic downtown business district, surviving the influx of big box stores and franchise businesses in recent decades, located in the westerly edge of the Village. One of the key businesses in the historic downtown is the Joylan Theater, which shows first run movies.

Storefront Revitalization Program

Yesterday, Erie County has announced the start of the Storefront Revitalization Program. The County Executive has dedicated $10 million of tax revenue from online sales during the COVID 19 pandemic to assist brick and mortar businesses who were adversely impacted during that time.   The program will grant small businesses up to $40,000 for exterior repairs to their storefronts.   One of our primary objectives is to fund Storefront façade improvements in every municipality in Erie County, but that requires that eligible businesses in each municipality apply.  This is where we’d like your help in getting the word out.  We are sending this to the Chambers of Commerce as well.  

Information on the program, the informational meeting and the on-line application can be found at:  www.erie.gov/storefront

There will be an on-line application that can be submitted beginning on Monday May 2. No doubt there will be a lot of questions.  There will also be an informational web ex meeting held on May 9 that people need to register for.  Please feel free to call Tuona Batchelor (858-2950) or Thomas Baines (858-6043) if you have questions in the interim.
