Williams: Modena Borough awarded $25,100 to acquire 2.5 acres for recreational activities

COATESVILLE, Oct. 8 – State Rep. Dan Williams announced today that Modena Borough has been awarded $25,100 from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to acquire approximately 2.5 acres in the borough for passive recreational activities.

“This money will allow Modena Borough to create more public spaces where people can enjoy nature, whether they are going for walks or just sitting on a bench enjoying a beautiful day,” Williams said. “Public parks foster community as they are places where people from all walks of life can gather together.”

The grant money comes from DCNR’s 2020 Community Conservation Partnerships Program Grants List. The grant program is funded with a variety of state and federal funding sources including, the Keystone Recreation, Park and Conservation Fund (Key 93) which includes Key-Community and Key-Land Trust; the Environmental Stewardship Fund (ESF); the federal Land and Water Conservation Fund (LWCF); Pennsylvania Trails fund (PRT - federal source); Pennsylvania Heritage Area Program (HA); and the ATV Restricted Management Account Fund (ATV).
