Supervisors Receive Comments On Meadowlands Proposal

Fri, Mar 20th, 2015

The Board of Supervisors heard comments on the Meadowlands Tract proposal once again at its meeting earlier this week.

Rick Collier, Chair of the Wissahickon Valley Watershed Association, spoke and reaffirmed the Watershed's commitment to offering its expertise and in-kind services to preserve and enhance the Meadowlands tract. Collier cited a study that examined the positive impacts of open space preservation in Southeastern Pennsylvania, which can be found here.

The proposal being considered by the Township would place a permanent conservation easement over the 125-acre Meadowlands Country Club property off Boehms Church Road. It would also give the Township the option to purchase the property outright for $1 at a future date.

The proposed price for this permanent conservation easement and the option to purchase the property is $6 million. The supervisors are concurrently considering a proposal to fund an additional $1 million in open space projects throughout the Township.
