Back in late August, residents had the opportunity to participate in a walk around Conshy that focused on ways to better connect Conshy to its waterfront and trail. This program, The Schuylkill River Town Program, is a two year initiative funded by the William Penn Foundation and managed by the Pennsylvania Environmental Council (PEC) to build stewardship of the Schuylkill River and adjacent trail through education and engagement.
The project focuses on the approximate 26 miles of trail and river, stretching from Phoenixville to Manayunk; partnering with towns located along its banks including Phoenixville, Norristown, Conshohocken and Manayunk. The goal is to connect river and trail users to the towns while encouraging local and regional residents to use and enjoy these exceptional assets.
The findings of the Conshohocken assessments will be presented on Tuesday, October 8th at 7:00 p.m. at Borough Hall located on Fayette Street and 8th Ave. After the findings are released, an Action Team will be formed to tackle short, mid-term and longer projects to improve access to the trail and river, engage and educate the community and improve the visitor experience.
To learn more or to get involved, you should attend the October 8th event or contact get involved, please contact Kimberly Stever at (215) 348-2266.
