The Camden County Commissioner Board has approved the recommendations of the Open Space, Recreation, Farmland and Historical Preservation Trust Fund Advisory Committee to award $650,000 to 26 recreation facility enhancement projects throughout the county. These funds will be utilized to upgrade, improve, or renovate recreational facilities for our residents and the families that call Camden County home. The 2021 Grant Recipients include $25,000 for a raised crosswalk at Centre St. for Merchantville's Multi-Use Trail and $25,000 for the Cramer Hill Waterfront Trail Connector in Camden City.
The Borough of Merchantville has been contacted by a representative of the New Jersey Conservation Foundation. There is a zoom meeting tonight, Tuesday, January 26th from 6:00-7:00 p.m., led by Action Team Leader Anya Saretzky, to get stakeholder input on extending Merchantville's multi-use trail in an easterly and westerly direction. Come learn about the planned Burlington/Camden Trail and how you can get involved. The Circuit Trails Coalition will be sharing brand new concepts for the trail and we want to hear your thoughts! The new trail will connect the Pennsauken and Maple Shade communities to the Merchantville and Dudley Grange Park trails, and beyond. Register to receive a link to attend this zoom meeting to become more familiar with what is happening on the ground and how you can take action to be a more active Circuit Citizen for Camden County.
