– Two grants projects in the 100th District will receive funds from the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund grant program, Rep. Bryan Cutler (R-Peach Bottom) said today. The program is administered through the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and is funded from the Reality Transfer Tax and interest.
Bart Township will receive $500,000 for the development of the Enola Low Grade Trail in Bart, Eden and Sadsbury townships. Work will include construction of approximately 9 miles of trail from Quarryville Borough (near State Route 372) to the Chester County line and three trailheads, as well as rehabilitation of two bridges.
“In June, DCNR Sec. Cindy Adams visited Lancaster County when portions of nearby trails were reconnected at the Enola Low Grade Trail Bridge. Outdoor enthusiasts will benefit from her commitment to an improved vision of the trail system and this key funding,” Cutler said.
Quarryville Borough will receive $60,000 for the rehabilitation of Huffnagle Park. Work will include the renovation of a pedestrian walkway, as well as installation of play equipment with required safety surfacing and a rain garden.
Both projects include ADA access, landscaping, project signage and other related site improvements.
The Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund Act (Key 93) became law in July 1993. Since that time, Key 93 has been a critical funding source for recreation, conservation and state park and forestry operations.
