The Richland Board of Supervisors in Pennsylvania was able to fund the purchase a new picnic pavilion, trail system, soccer zone and family play zone for Richland Community Park. It was funded by bonds, a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources, and a contribution by a local housing development.
The supervisors voted unanimously to purchase a 60-foot steel picnic shelter from Classic Recreation Systems for the Park. The supervisors previously had approved a 42-foot pavilion, but decided to go with the larger structure after getting the contribution from the home developer.
Richland taxpayers have benefited from both the beautiful park additions and financially by refinancing the municipal bonds. For more information, read the full article.
