(Derek Gee/Buffalo News file photo)Williamsville is planning to reduce the speed limit on some streets that run along parks in the village in an effort to improve safety.

New Mayor Daniel DeLano recently learned the village has the authority to do that, said Maggie Winship, Williamsville's director of community development.

The Village Board will hold public hearings at 7:30 p.m. Jan. 8 on proposals to lower the speed limit from 30 mph to 25 mph on five streets near South Long, Glen and Garrison parks. They include sections of Park Drive, South Ellicott Street, South Long Street, Village Square Lane and Rock Street.

The village also is holding a hearing on reducing the speed limit on Glen Avenue, from Reist Street to North Cayuga Road, near SS. Peter and Paul School, from 30 mph to 15 mph.
