PA Township News: Saving Spaces: Conservation Tools Help Create Landscapes Residents Want And Invest In

The October issue of PA Township News has a feature article on the tools available to townships to help design a community landscape  that residents want and invest in.
The article, Saving Spaces, is written by Brenda Wilt, Assistant Editor, and offers a comprehensive review of the tools and policies communities can use to protect open space, natural areas and increase local recreational opportunities.
Particularly helpful are examples of communities across the state and how they are tackling this issue.
“As development pressure grows in many areas of the Commonwealth, townships are using a variety of tools to preserve the land and natural resources that give their communities their character.
“From using dedicated taxes and regulations to specialized committees and outside consultants, municipalities are working hard to create the landscapes that their residents wand and, in many cases, are willing to invest in.
