Heritage Conservancy will receive $322,000, which will be applied toward the acquisition of a conservation easement on approximately 81.9 acres along Swamp Road in Buckingham and Wrightstown townships for riparian forest and headwater protection of Neshaminy Creek.
Northampton Township will receive a grant for $220,000 to be applied to the rehabilitation of the Civic Center Recreation Complex. Work will include the renovation of the access road and parking area; construction of a handicap accessible pedestrian walkway and basketball court; implementation of storm water management measures; installation of utilities and lighting; and landscaping, signage and other related site improvements.
