Supervisors And Residents Discuss Open Space Initiative

Thu, May 21st, 2015

Last night, the Board of Supervisors again discussed a proposed open space initiative to preserve the Meadowlands tract.

The board did not take any action on the proposal. Last night's meeting included an updated presentation on the proposal, which, if passed, would place a permanent conservation easement over the 125-acre Meadowlands Country Club property. If passed, the conservation easement would guarantee no future development on the tract except in accordance with the easement and the existing Park and Recreation Zoning on the tract.

The draft agreement as presented grants the Township an option to purchase the entire property for $1 if all terms and conditions are not met. The proposed price for the conservation easement and option is $6 million. The Supervisors said the final proposed agreement would be posted on the Township's website prior to any vote on the matter.

The open space proposal also includes the Township funding park and open space projects such as improvements to the Core Connector Trails, the Narcissa Road Trail, Centre Square Park and plantings recommended by the Shade Tree Commission.

Important Pedestrian Link Completed

Fri, May 29th, 2015

Crews recently completed laying a 277-foot section of sidewalk connecting the existing sidewalk on Norristown Road to the Narcissa Road Trail.

This new section of sidewalk provides a key link allowing pedestrians to walk from Prophecy Creek Park to the corporate offices near the 5-Points intersection.

"With each connection we make we come closer to achieving our long-standing goal to have a Township-wide trail network linking neighborhoods to community facilities and open spaces," said Parks and Recreation Director Kurt Baker. "The Board of Supervisors, the Park and Open Space Board, and Township staff members remain committed to achieving a walkable Whitpain."

The sidewalk project was paid for by a developer as part of a land development approval.
