Lower Paxton watchdog, Nov. 2010

Below are highlights of actions taken by Lower Paxton Township officials during November:

* The supervisors approved a plan submitted by Holy Name of Jesus Church to construct a 1,400-seat sanctuary at the rear of the church property on Allentown Blvd. Church officials held a groundbreaking ceremony on Nov. 22.

* The township Parks & Recreation Department is gearing up to do initial planning for the development of Wolfersberger Park and upgrading of 40-year-old Koons Park in Linglestown.

Wolfersberger Park is a 93-acre tract of undeveloped land located east of Linglestown along Wenrich Street, and a portion of it is leased for use as a paintball field.

The two park properties are fairly close to each other and the intent is for them to become sister parks, and planning for both parks will be done together.

The township does not expect to have money in the near future for improving parkland, but the township supervisors approved moving ahead so plans are in place when funds become available. The planning process will include a series of meetings for gathering public input.

Problems at Koons Park were discussed during an informational meeting, including inadequate parking, the closeness of athletic fields to adjacent houses, poor drainage, and lights and public address systems that bother nearby residents.

* The supervisors will hold a workshop session on Nov. 7 at t pm to discuss a possible property-tax hike for 2011 to fund a projected $530,000 shortfall in the township’s cash reserves. The meeting will be held at the Municipal Center on Prince Street.

SWAN will be holding its annual holiday party on Monday, Dec. 13 at 7 pm at Epiphany Lutheran Church on Colonial Road. Members and invited guests need to RSVP to Betty Miller via e-mail by Dec. 8.
