– Rep. Bob Brooks (R-Allegheny/Westmoreland) announced today that local residents will soon benefit from state grant funding that was awarded to Lower Burrell and Murrysville through the Community Conservation Partnerships Program (CCPP)
“Our municipal parks, open spaces and greenways offer a variety of recreational opportunities that improve the quality of life for our residents,” said Brooks. “The funds from these grants will help enhance the quality and variety of outdoor experiences our area has to offer.”
Lower Burrell will receive a grant of $19,900 to prepare a comprehensive recreation, park and open space plan for Lower Burrell City.
Murrysville will receive a grant of $299,800 to further develop Murrysville Community Park. The work includes construction of an amphitheater, comfort station, parking area, pedestrian walkway and stormwater management measures; installation of lighting, audio equipment, utilities and fencing; Americans with Disabilities Act access; and landscaping, project sign and other related site improvements.
The CCPP program is administered by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources’s Bureau of Recreation and Conservation to provide financial and technical assistance to local governments, river and trail organizations, land trusts, and other nonprofits for the planning, acquisition and development of park, recreation, conservation and greenways projects.
