MONROEVILLE, Jan. 12 – A major $521,000 state grant will help Monroeville acquire land for future recreational space, state Rep. Brandon Markosek, D-Allegheny, announced today.
The Allegheny Land Trust received the funding to put towards a payment for 96 acres of land within the municipality of Monroeville that can be used for open space and passive recreation.
“As our communities grow, it’s important to preserve outdoor spaces that can grow along with them,” Markosek said. “I’m pleased to see an investment from the state for an area where folks in Monroeville can go to enjoy the great outdoors.”
The state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources administered the grant through its Community Conservation Partnerships Program. The special fall grant round focused on underserved communities and on supporting the outdoor recreation sector, closing trail gaps, and planting trees along streams and communities.
