Coatesville City Council passed two resolutions on Monday that approved applications for grants for improvements to two parks in the city, writes Lucas Rodgers for Daily Local News.
The city will apply for a $250,000 grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for the second and third phase of the Palmer Park Master Plan. In addition to the grant, Natural Lands Trust will work on securing the necessary matching funds.
Coatesville will also apply for a grant of $40,000 from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources to fund the Ash Park Master Plan and Pool Feasibility Study. Since the Ash Park’s pool closure three years ago, the city has been without a public pool.
In addition to the grants, the council also passed two resolutions on the road improvement project at the intersection of Lincoln Highway and First Avenue. One of the resolutions is to acquire temporary construction easements, while the other gives DEPG Coatesville Associates conditional approval for a mixed use redevelopment.
During the meeting, Councilwoman Deborah Bookman was appointed to the Reserve Trust Fund Commission for 2017-2018. This keeps track of transactions, receipts, and disbursements made by the City Reserve Trust Fund.
