Ullman: Neshaminy Greenway Trail receives $225,000 boost from state

DOYLESTOWN, Oct. 15 – State Rep. Wendy Ullman congratulated regional stakeholders and residents of Central Bucks on news today that the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources awarded $225,000 to expand the Neshaminy Greenway Trail.

The trail will adjoin the five communities of Chalfont Borough, New Britain Borough, Doylestown Borough, Doylestown Township, New Britain Borough and New Britain Township to two train lines in Chalfont Borough and New Britain Borough, and connect the region to a bus line that runs from County Line Road to Delaware Valley University.

It also will link the five communities to more parks, including the Quinlan Nature Preserve in New Britain Borough, and connect the town centers of Doylestown Borough and Chalfont Borough.

“State cooperation and investments keep local project costs down and bring our hard-working state tax dollars back to our community. I look forward to helping match more state funding to future phases of the Neshaminy Greenway Trail and many other improvements in the region,” said Ullman, D-Bucks. “It’s easy work supporting the excellent and well-managed projects that our region has to offer.”

The investments are among 41 grants supported by the Keystone and Environmental Stewardship funds, ATV and Snowmobile restricted accounts and federal Pennsylvania Recreational Trails funds awarded statewide, totaling approximately $7.6 million for trail projects including planning, construction and rehabilitation, as well as for ATVs/snowmobiles.
