– Rep. Keith Greiner (R-Lancaster) announced today that West Lampeter Township has been awarded a $250,000 state grant for rehabilitation and further development of Village Park.
“The grant, which was awarded through the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), will go toward improving the recreational infrastructure in the park,” said Greiner, who previously wrote a letter to DCNR in support of the grant.
The improvements covered under the grant include the renovation of a basketball court; construction of a parking area, pedestrian walkway, volleyball court and stormwater management measures; installation of play equipment with required safety surfacing; and lighting.
In addition to infrastructure and equipment improvements, the grant will also be used to improve ADA access, landscaping, signage and other related site improvements.
Township officials, who are working to raise the $3 million needed to complete the project, say they plan to break ground in 2019.
