Delaware County Receives Grant Money for Trail Development, Santora Says
HARRISBURG – Rep. James R. Santora (R-Delaware) announced that a $62,800 grant has been awarded to develop the Darby Creek Trail through the state’s Community Conservation Partnerships Program (CCPP).

The funding will be used to develop a half mile of the Darby Creek Trail in Clifton Heights Borough and Lansdowne and Upper Darby townships from Kent County Park in Darby Township to the Gateway Trail in Lansdowne Township. The work will include drawings, specifications and related documents.

“The new trail will connect two other trails that families currently use. It will be paved for the benefit of runners and bike riders,” Santora said. “This will be a great advancement of recreational opportunities we have in the area.”

The CCPP is administered by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and includes the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund (KEY 93), the Environmental Stewardship Fund (Growing Greener 1) and several federal funding sources. The program is designed to provide financial and technical assistance to local governments, river and trail organizations, land trusts and other nonprofits for planning, acquisition and development of park, recreation, conservation and greenway projects.
