REGARDING: Lancaster Township is preparing a master plan for Four Springs Park
In 2009 the Lancaster Township Supervisors purchased the Haine Farm with the goal of developing it as a community park. This past year the Township successfully applied for and received a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Bureau of Recreation and Conservation to prepare a master plan for the park.
The master plan will provide the foundation and framework to guide the decision-making process for developing the park. With a master plan, the Lancaster Township Supervisors will have a plan to guide them in developing the park in an orderly and fiscally responsible manner. Good planning reduces conflict, liability, and maintenance costs, and most importantly, will meet the recreation needs of the Township residents. In addition to guiding the development of the park, the Township will use the master plan to support funding requests for improvements within the park.
Township residents are invited to participate in this planning process through several venues, all of which can be found on the Township Webpage: www.lancaster-township.com
- Attending three public input sessions that will be scheduled during the planning process
Further, the Township Supervisors have appointed a 10 person steering committee that will meet with the consultant periodically throughout the planning process.
“This is an exciting project for the Township. This master plan will establish a vision for the park, and recommend a framework for implementing that vision over the next five to ten years. We look forward to having our residents participate in this planning process. Please take the time to complete the Four Springs Park Master Plan Survey before May 9th your input will help us determine what should be included in the park. You can access the survey on-line by following the link on the Township’s web page – www.lancaster-township.com.” – Joe Plesniak, Supervisor.
The plan is being prepared by Pashek Associates, a Landscape Architecture and Community Planning Firm located in Pittsburgh.
