Meadowlands Open Space Initiative

Open Space Initiative To Be Discussed At June 16 Supervisors’ Meeting

The Board of Supervisors will continue discussions Tuesday (June 16) on a proposed open space initiative that would preserve the Meadowlands tract.

The proposal, if passed, would place a permanent conservation easement over the 128-acre Meadowlands Country Club property. 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 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.
