At the Board of Commissioners meeting on September 21, 2022 a presentation was given by Commissioner Dougherty in regards to the ongoing acquisition of 43 acres of land from the Sisters of Saint Francis. The presentation can be found here, it will show the project from beginning to its current status as well as the funding contributions from grants as well as other contributors.
As Commissioner Dougherty stated last night, we are very happy the Sisters reached out to the Township in regards to acquiring the property. If it had been sold to a private buyer the possibility of conserving this wonderful open space may not have been an option and the 43 acres could have potentially been developed.
We thank the Sisters for that as well as Natural Lands for their continued help and support with this project.
