CHAMBERSBURG, Pa. - After two years of work and input from 700 residents, the Franklin County Commissioners on Thursday adopted the county's first plan designed to strengthen and sustain recreation, parks and open space.
The Comprehensive Recreation, Park and Open Space Plan will serve as a guide for addressing current and future cultural, natural and recreational resource needs of county residents, Commissioner G. Warren Elliott said.
The commissioners also appointed an advisory committee of nine county residents to oversee and implement the plan.
The plan outlines a 10-year implementation strategy that includes:
- Administration for the county's recreation, greenway and open space system.
- A county trail system.
- Support of local initiatives.
- Recreation and open space inventory.
- EcoPark at Franklin Farm.
