A volunteer committee was formed in 2018, consisting of Tim Phelps, Chuck Barbera, Kelly Weinberg, Joan Smallwood and Shawn Bollig. These volunteers helped to formulate a plan to preserve open space and to integrate it into our system of parks and trails. The first official task force meeting was held in January of 2019. The volunteers are working alongside Natural Lands, Toole Recreation Planning, Gaito & Associates and McMahon Associates to develop a Parks, Recreation, and Open Space plan for the Township. The PROS plan has been completed and brought before the public, Planning Commission, Park and Recreation Board for comments prior to the plan being adopted. The PROS plan is currently being reviewed by the Board of Supervisors. Adoption will take place in 2021.
