At Tuesday’s Board Meeting, The Supervisors discussed their intent to purchase all or a portion of the Mermaid Tract for recreational purposes. The property was recently sold by the original owners to Metropolitan Development Group. The new owners subsequently submitted a conditional use application to build 53 detached single-family homes on the property. However, the Supervisors continue to seek various alternatives to enhance recreational opportunities within the Township; including adding additional ball fields, trails, and playing courts.
The Township plans to meet with representatives from Metropolitan and remains committed to the possible acquisition of all or a portion of the Mermaid Tract to enhance recreational opportunities for the community.
