HARRISBURG – Sen. Tracy Pennycuick (R-24) and Rep. Matthew Bradford (D-70) met on Thursday afternoon at Perkiomen Township’s municipal building to present a ceremonial check for the Township’s recent award of $250,000 from the Department of Community and Economic Development’s Greenways, Trails, and Recreation Program.
“Our Commonwealth’s natural beauty is something every Pennsylvanian should cherish. I am always happy to see projects that preserve green open space for future generations,” said Pennycuick, “We will continue to support recreational development efforts like this going forward.”
The Township plans to use these funds to construct improvements at Highland-Huber Park, such as ADA accessible trails, restrooms, and a community garden. Perkiomen Township manager, Cecile Daniel, and members of the Board of Supervisors, Adam Doyle (Chairperson) and Pamela Margolis (Vice-Chairman) were present to receive the check.
“A community park is an important landmark for a community, providing recreational opportunities for our neighbors and a greenspace to preserve our natural resources. This funding will go toward the development of a much-needed park in a community that currently lacks sufficient recreational space,” said Bradford, “I’m grateful that the state is investing in Perkiomen Township’s park project.”
