Mayor Joseph Saraceni, left, accepts a bike rack donation from Kiwanis Tony Saraceni, center, and Greater Baldwinsville Economic Development Agency (GBEDA) Director Mike Mattessich. Working together, the GBEDA, the Greater Baldwinsville Chamber of Commerce and the Baldwinsville Kiwanis recently initiated a bike rack program to supply the village of Baldwinsville with two bike racks, one in Mercer Park and one for the Village Square, which will be donated when the project is complete. “The bike rack program is an initiative to encourage and promote a more pedestrian and bicycle friendly community,” said Tony Saraceni. “The Baldwinsville Kiwanis saw this as an opportunity to donate back to the community to promote there organization.” Through his business, Mattessich Iron, Mattessich custom built the bike rack with funds donated by the Baldwinsville Kiwanis. The GBCC adopted the program and developed the bicycle rack plan.
