Cheltenham invites residents to discuss Conklin Pool improvements

Representatives of the Township and the Tookany/Tacony-Frankford Watershed Partnership (TTF) will be at Conklin Pool on today between 4 PM and 8 PM to talk about a proposed green infrastructure project at the Conklin Recreational Center. It will hold a second session Saturday, August 3 between 2:00 PM and 4:00 PM.

The sessions are designed to introduce residents to plans developed by the township and the TTF to remedy years of environmental degradation brought upon Jenkintown creek due to development.

Because the Jenkintown Creek sub-watershed is 98% developed, there are limited places for improvement projects. Parks provide opportunities for projects that will manage stormwater and beautify the area at the same time.
