Green Light for Cynwyd Heritage Trail

After much deliberation and universally positive testimony from the public, the Lower Merion Township Commissioners on the Park and Recreation Committee voted 13-0 to recommend to the full Board that the Planning Dept. move forward on developing construction documents and soliciting bids to build the Cynwyd Heritage Trail for $2.4 million.  This is a very important milestone for the Cynwyd Trail, which will be the anchor for an off-road trail connecting Lower Merion to the Schuylkill River Trail.  Congratulations to Chris Leswing, the LMT Planning Dept and Parks and Rec. Dept., and the Friends of Cynwyd Trail; all of their hard work is bearing fruit!
