Park plans developing in Susquehanna

Susquehanna Depot has received a grant to develop a new park along the river and is pursuing those plans.
With that decision, the borough council said it was pulling the site out of consideration for the Susquehanna County Recreation Center in order to move forward with the park project.
Judith Hershel, who is heading up the park project grant, reported that although “things are due soon” the borough is on track and in good shape with the timeline.
Hershel said the project was a “huge asset to the community,” adding that she was happy to be part of it.
Currently the borough is in the permit process, with plans to clear trees from the site starting in April or May. Paperwork will be submitted to DEP as soon as the permits are received, she said.
The park project will take several years, with completion expected in 2020.
Metals and plastics will be collected at the Dept. of Public Works garage, Saturday and Sunday, April 29-30, 8 a.m.-2 p.m.; and Monday –Friday, May 1-5, 8 a.m.-6 p.m.
No household trash or sticks and leaves yard waste will be accepted. A DPW worker will be at the site at the listed times to accept the items.
Councilman John Hendrickson reported the borough spent $11,909 during a two-day window for clean-up efforts during snowstorm Stella in March on labor, equipment and contractors.
