Northumberland Borough and Point Township Recreation Projects Funded by State, Says Culver
HARRISBURG – Two recreation projects in the 108th Legislative District will receive state grants, jointly totaling more than $100,000, under the Community Conservation Partnership Program, said Rep. Lynda Schlegel Culver (R-Northumberland/Snyder).

The project to develop the Northumberland Riverfront Trail in Northumberland Borough will receive $96,000. Funding will assist with the construction of a roughly half-mile trail that will run along the Susquehanna River from Pineknotter Park to State Route 147.

Additionally, Point Township will receive $30,000 to evaluate the potential to develop a trail along the North Branch Canal from Northumberland Borough to the northern part of the township.

“This is good news for residents living in and around Northumberland,” said Culver. “I was glad to have a hand in helping to advocate for these important projects, and I thank the folks who will be involved in seeing them through for many to enjoy.”

The Community Conservation Partnerships Program (CCPP) is administered by the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Bureau of Recreation and Conservation. The program approves grants for such projects through previous bond issues and through portions of vehicle registration fees.
