HARRISBURG – Sen. Tracy Pennycuick (R-Montgomery/Berks) and Rep. Donna Scheuren (R-Montgomery) announced today that three projects in Montgomery County were rewarded grants through Act 13. The three projects are as follows:
The Yoder Sidewalk Connections Project in Lower Salford Township has been rewarded $200,000 to help fund the building of new sidewalks to close crucial gaps in Lower Salford’s trail network.
The Hickory Park Renovation Project in New Hanover Township has been rewarded $200,000 to continue its enhancements of the park’s entrance, the parking lot, and various improvements to park amenities.
The Hollenbach Park Trail Project in Upper Pottsgrove Township has been rewarded $200,000 to develop a new trail on Hollenbach Park land which will serve residents of multiple areas and the students of Pottsgrove Middle School.
“These awards will help ensure that communities within Montgomery County continue to serve as hubs for recreational development projects,” said Pennycuick. “Our residents will be happy to learn that the Commonwealth is committed to supporting expansions for our beautiful greenways, trails, and parks.”
“Believing all three of these projects were a big win for all three townships, I advocated quite heavily for their approval,” said Scheuren. “These grants provide funding to help make open space more enjoyable by improving our area parks and by adding additional connections to sidewalks and trails.”
