LOWER SALFORD — The Montgomery County Planning Commission is taking a look at the trails in the municipality, Township Manager Joe Czajkowski said at the Dec. 16 Lower Salford Township Board of Supervisors morning work session meeting.
"We have a lot of trails, but really the primary focus should be on connecting some of this," Czajkowski said.
The township has a history of being forward-thinking in planning for trails; the question now is what should be prioritized, board member Keith Bergman said.
By having plans on hand, the township can be ready when grants or other funding becomes available, township officials said. Trails can also be added with new development, they said.
"I like the idea of getting a list of order. I think that was a good idea, maybe also seeking the public's input," board member Kevin Shelly said.
"I like the idea of connecting the trails to also connect people so that they can walk to our businesses," he said, "as well as connecting to other parts of the township."
Bergman said it may also be time again to consider putting security cameras in township parks.
That was discussed a couple years ago "when we thought it was gonna be an easier project," Czajkowski said.
Since the township does not have electricity at most of the parks, there were technological issues with adding the cameras, he said.
Technology continues to progress, however, he said.
