Residents Comment on Roberts Ridge Park Meadow Plan

At the May 8, 2019, Newtown Township Board of Supervisors public meeting, several residents and watershed experts spoke out against the establishment of a "meadow" in Roberts Ridge Park as part of the township's Pollution Reduction Plan. Several objections were raised. The discussion resulted in the Township rethinking the plan for the park and mowing the meadow in the meantime. Other ideas were put forward to comply with PA Department of Environmental Protection regarding reduction of pollution of watersheds.

As a result of resident input the meadow plan was ALTERED for Roberts Ridge Park and the Township has a better plan. Michele Fountain, the Township Planner, noted that she has done similar work for quite a few other municipalities and "this by far beats any other municipality [regarding] residents' comments on the plan. It's a compliment to Newtown residents and how vested they are in the plan."

At this party, you can meet Elen Snyder, Joyce Ely, other environmentalists, and your neighbors to learn more about the Newtown Pollution Reduction Plan (PRP), its impact on Roberts Ridge Park, and how the Friends of Roberts Ridge Park plan to achieve its goal of augmenting the PRP in the park by planting native trees. Refreshments and John Mack’s famous lasagna will be available.
