Local Effort to Revitalize Public Space


The Lehigh Valley township of Lower Macungie is undertaking a new endeavor: revitalizing the Camp Olympic property off of Cedar Crest Boulevard. The township purchased the property in order to preserve its green space, and now, the community is being asked to join in the discussion over how the space should be revived.

The potential is expansive. Some ideas already mentioned are new hiking trails, a dog park, and even a restaurant. The town has a hired a public consultant to begin drafting a comprehensive plan and is moving ahead thanks to a generous grant from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources – but officials need community members to voice their opinions on what to do with the property. The public is encouraged to offer ideas at the first of four discussions to be held at 7:00 P.M.  tomorrow (Tuesday, September 29th) at the Lower Macungie municipal building, 3400 Brookside Road in Macungie. More information can be found on the town’s meeting notice and website.
