SALISBURY TWP., Pa. - The Salisbury Township Board of Commissioners approved the Lindberg Park Master Site Plan at its meeting on Thursday night.
The Master Site Plan was brought before the Board after some alterations were made based off of public comment at a previous meeting. According to Urban Research and Development Representative Joanne Connelly, the Master Site Plan was "well received by the public" with the exception of two things. Connelly stated that the public wanted more "buffer space" between the multi-use perimeter path and the adjoining properties and the baseball associations wanted more baseball facilities located throughout the park.
According to Connelly, a sufficient buffer zone was added between the adjoining properties and the multi-use perimeter path and batting cages and a bullpen was added to the park.
Aside from these additions, Connelly stated that the main focus of this park is to improve the playground.
"The playground is in most need of improvement. It is not up to ADA Standards or Safety Standards," stated Connelly.
Connelly presented this Master Site Plan to the Board in order to get the approval to move forward with it. The next step would be to get a matching grant from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to finish funding Phase 1.
According to Borough Manager Randy Soriano, $160,000 has already been secured by the Township to fund Phase 1 and the Township is looking to DCNR to fund a matching Grant. The Township would then be responsible for funding the remaining amount, unless another partner is willing to do so. According to Soriano, the total cost of Phase 1 of this project is approximately $341,000.
The Board of Commissioners passed the Resolution to move forward with the Master Site Plan by a unanimous vote.
