Proposed Public Works Garage - Public Meeting May 21 at 6:30 PM

The Public Works Committee is scheduled to present the four 5-year DPW plans to the Board of Supervisors (BoS) and the general public on May 21st at 6:30 PM in the Municipal Building.  One of the main topics will be a proposed new public works garage. 

For costing purposes, the committee is using a figure of $3.2 million.  And, for a location, the committee favors using 7 or more acres on the east side of the (not yet designed nor developed) 53 acre park at Richmond and Newlins E.  This park abuts the Farmland Protection (FP) District to the north, Riverview Estates to the East and Vista Estates to the south. 

On April 16th, a public hearing was held on the park project.  The hearing was a requirement of the park planning grant application that was due to be submitted the next week.  The Forks Township Youth Sports Organization was represented as were several park land neighbors.  Not everyone liked the new park as a proposed location of the public works garage.  Everyone liked an additional park.

If you want your ideas and opinions known, plan to be there for the 6:30 presentation/meeting.  It will be followed by the regular BoS meeting at 7:30 PM.
