North Franklin Township Receives Growing Greener Watershed Protection Grant
The grant award is part of the DEP’s Growing Greener Plus Program, the largest single investment of state funds in Pennsylvania’s history to address Pennsylvania’s critical environmental concerns of the 21st century.
The $65,000 grant will help fund streambank stabilization in North Franklin Township and will help the Township to meet its MS4 Permit requirements. We would like to thank DEP Secretary Patrick McDonnell and PA Governor Tom Wolf for selecting our project and helping us to reduce sediment pollution in our local waterways!
Please remember that street parking during snow is not permitted.
To allow for snow plowing, all cars must be off the street during snow and for 12 hours afterward or until your street has been cleared. Your cooperation allows the road department to remove the snow as quickly and safely as possible. If you do not have available off-street parking, please contact the Township Office at 724-228-3330 so that we can assist you.
North Franklin Township Receives DCNR Grant
The $36,000 grant award is part of the Community Conservation Partnerships Program administered by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and will help to fund a Master Site Development Plan for the park property that was purchased by the North Franklin Recreation and Business Improvement Authority in 2016.
We would like to thank Cindy Adams Dunn, the Secretary of the DCNR and Pennsylvania Governor Tom Wolf for supporting our effort to provide a place for people to connect with nature in their own community. We look forward to working with the DCNR to implement this project which will contribute to the quality of life for our residents!
DCNR is the primary source of state support for Pennsylvania recreation, parks, and conservation initiatives. Grant funding from DCNR assists hundreds of communities and organizations across Pennsylvania to plan, acquire, and develop recreation and park facilities, create trails, and conserve open space.
“Pennsylvania’s local parks, trails, and natural areas create many opportunities to be active outdoors. They define our communities and make them places where people want to live, work and play,” said Tom Ford, director of DCNR’s Bureau of Recreation and Conservation. “Our grants help our local partners meet the vision they have for their communities and regions.”
Funding for the grants comes from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund (Key 93), the Environmental Stewardship Fund (Growing Greener 1), and federal funding sources.
