The Commonwealth Financing Authority (CFA) today (September 17) approved a major grant to improve Freeport Community Park, according to Senator Joe Pittman and Representative Jeff Pyle.
The Freeport Community Park Corporation was awarded a $240,000 Greenways, Trails and Recreation Program grant to rehabilitate the parking lots and walking trails at the park.
“I’m pleased to see the CFA is using some of its Marcellus Impact Fee funding for this purpose. Our local parks are significant parts of their communities and they enhance the quality of life for residents,” said Senator Pittman. “This park is definitely a key facility for the Freeport area including both Armstrong and Butler counties. These renovations are long overdue and they will further enhance a great recreational asset in the Route 28 corridor.”
“This grant represents a sizeable investment by the state in the development of Freeport Community Park,” Representative Pyle said. “The improved parking area and trails will improve the quality of life for everyone in the region.”
The CFA was established as an independent agency of the Commonwealth to administer Pennsylvania’s economic stimulus packages. The CFA holds fiduciary responsibility over the funding of programs and investments in Pennsylvania’s economic growth.
