Lower Macungie Looking to Plan Parks

Township forms advisory group to make recommendations on comprehensive plan for recreation and open space.

Lower Macungie residents who are interested in the township's plans for its parks and recreation programs are welcome to attend meetings of a new panel charged with making recommendations. 

The Citizen Task Force for Comprehensive Recreation & Open Space is expecting to begin meeting in September to provide input to the township commissioners and staff on a comprehensive plan for the parks, officials said.

"We'll probably come up with a long term plan rather than do things piecemeal," said Commissioner Roger Reis, who sits on the Public Works Committee.

The panel, organized by Sara Pandl, township director of planning, includes about a dozen volunteers representing various interests. But the public is welcome to attend the meetings and make suggestions of their own, commissioners said.

Is there a place and date set for the meeting in September?

LMT should explore at least a part time professional Parks & Recreation staff member. I hope this is explored in the study.

First meeting of the Task Force will be Monday, Sept. 17 at 6:00 pm at the township building.
