State Senator Maria Collett, State Representative Liz Hanbidge and State Representative Matt Bradford announced last week that Whitpain is the recipient of a $1 million Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program grant.
Funding from the grant will be used for infrastructure improvements at Mermaid Park and to improve facilities at the park to relocate the Township’s summer camp program.
“After purchasing the 63.5-acre Mermaid property in 2020, the Township embarked on a master planning effort for the park,” said Supervisor Chair Kim Koch. “This grant will help us bring part of the master plan to fruition as we transform a portion of the property into a permanent home for our popular summer camp. Our camp program offers a high-quality, low-cost summer camp option for children in our community.”
The grant requires a Township match of $1 million.
