– Rep. Kate Klunk (R-Hanover) announced recreational improvement projects in Hanover and Shrewsbury Township will receive a combined $321,800 in Community Conservation Partnerships Program (CCPP) grants from the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).
Shrewsbury Township will receive a $281,800 grant to further develop Miller Park. Under this project, new pavilions, horseshoe pits and rain gardens will be constructed, playground areas with required safety surfacing will be installed, ADA access will be improved and other improvements will be made.
Hanover will receive a $40,000 grant to prepare a Comprehensive Recreation, Park and Open Space Plan.
“These two grants will improve recreational options for residents,” Klunk said. “These CCPP grants are an investment in our community.”
The grant program is administered by DCNR’s Bureau of Recreation and Conservation to provide financial and technical assistance to local governments, river and trail organizations,
land trusts, and other nonprofits. Funding is used for planning, acquisition and development of park, recreation, conservation and greenway projects.
