Ciresi Check Presentation

The Limerick Board of Supervisors is pleased to announce that the Township will receive the following grant awards which will be used to improve roadway and pedestrian safety, enhance park and recreational opportunities, provide additional bus shelters for public transit users, and strengthen Police K9 services and public safety for our community.

$783,421 – North Lewis Road Sidewalk & Stormwater Improvements 

PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Multimodal Transportation Fund Program 

The funds will be used to rectify drainage issues along North Lewis Road and install sidewalks on the south side of the roadway which will provide pedestrian and enhanced ADA access to the Spring Ford School complex. 

$200,000 – Limerick Community Park (LCP) – Phase I Improvements (as per the LCP Master Plan Study) 

PA Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) Greenways, Trails, and Recreation Program (GTRP) from the Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) 

The funding will be used to construct Phase 1 improvements noted in the Limerick Community Park Master Plan which include new playgrounds, trails and walkways, ADA access, and parking. 

$48,000 – Additional Bus Shelters throughout the Township

PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Initiatives

With a growing population and need to promote public transportation options and reduce traffic congestion, the funds will be used to install new bus shelters at several heavily used SEPTA bus stops within Limerick.

$25,000 – K-9 and Police Related Equipment 

PA Department of Community and Economic Development (DCED) Initiatives

The funds will be used to support the police K9 unit and to provide safety and operational equipment for our officers.

These grants are a result of the Board of Supervisors long standing objective of seeking alternate funding to offset the need for additional local taxes to provide the essential services required to maintain the vitality and health, safety and welfare of this Limerick Community.  This business philosophy has resulted in over $14 million in grant funding received over the past decade.
