Lamont McClure and Director of Parks & Recreation Bryan Cope presented twelve Livable Landscape grants to County Council at their May 20th meeting. County Council approved all awards for a total $996,927.

Livable Landscape grants are open to institutions of Higher Education, authorized organizations and county municipalities. Eligible projects include land preservation, ecological restoration, acquisition of municipal parks and planning, education and outreach for management of critical habitats, open space and natural areas.

“The pandemic showed us how essential our parks and trails are to the residents of Northampton County,” says Lamont McClure. “It’s important that we continue to help our municipalities expand and improve their recreational properties and facilities.”

“Livable Landscape grants expand opportunities for local recreation as well as giving municipalities the chance to install green infrastructure such as riparian buffers, wild flower meadows and native plants,” says Bryan Cope, Superintendent of Parks and Recretion.

The grants received a unanimous vote from the Northampton County Parks, Recreation and Open Space Advisory Board at their meeting on May 11th.
