The Township was recently awarded a $114,885 NatureWorks Grant to enhance accessibility to and utilization of Beacon Hills Park. The grant award process was highly competitive. Consequently, this award reflects the clarity of purpose and true need for the funds demonstrated in the application, which was submitted last May. Submission of the application was a joint effort of Township Administrator Steve Wright, Service Director Rick Youel, and members of the Township’s Park and Recreation Committee (Rick and Donna Patz, Wendy Wysocki, and Tim Cohn).
