Recent Projects

CONTACT US TO GET INVOLVED.

In 2017, we enhanced Butler Park with landscaping and a crushed stone trail (shown right) using a County 50/50 match grant, a generous in-kind donation from Pennsy Supply, and Borough and volunteer labor. This three-phase project began in 2016 and included drainage work and a partial trail along Chapel Avenue, a gazebo at the #1 Fire Company (shown bottom left), and a parking lot extension behind the municipal building with a pavilion.
