HARRISBURG – Pennsylvania House Republican Leader Bryan Cutler (R-Lancaster) and Sen. Scott Martin (R-Lancaster) announced Tuesday they have secured a significant reinvestment of taxpayer dollars into the southern Lancaster County region.
The state grants, approved by the Commonwealth Financing Authority, will go to fund the following local improvements:
• $250,000 for the redecking of the Bart Township Bridge along the Enola Low Grade Trail.
• $232,187 for the Christiana Historical Society to build a new indoor/outdoor recreation area at Brinton House Park.
• $250,000 for a connector into Quarryville Borough on the Enola Low Grade Trail.
“This return in state taxpayer dollars for our community will help with local economic development in southern Lancaster County while helping to increase the appeal of our region. Returning taxpayer investment in important community projects, especially when they have been asked for at the local level, is the impact people hope to see from state government,” Cutler said. “I am proud to have worked with Sen. Martin on securing this significant return in state taxpayer dollars for our community.”
Martin noted these grants will go toward improving recreational opportunities in southern Lancaster County.
“Providing recreational opportunities is a big part of improving the quality of life locally and making our communities an even better place to live, work and raise a family,” Martin said. “I appreciated working cooperatively with Rep. Cutler to ensure these community improvement projects can move forward.”
