In the quest for sustainability, communities around the world are implementing sustainability action plans to reduce energy consumption and green house gas emissions. The Sierra Club, in conjunction with ICLEI – Local Governments for Sustainability, developed Cool Cities to encourage widespread action at the local level across the country. Communities in Pennsylvania who are participating include: Allentown, Bethlehem, Braddock, Easton, Erie, Forest Hills, Harrisburg, Kutztown, Mount Lebanon, Nether Providence, Oxford, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh, Reading, Scranton, Wilkes Barre, and York. Lower Makefield Township (LMT), in keeping with its continuing environmentally active orientation, has joined this enlightened group of communities.
Lower Makefield Township has prepared this updated Open Space Plan as a statement of its vision for open space preservation. In developing the vision, the township examined the current state of development, the areas that are under threat from development, past actions that have resulted in open space preservation, opportunities for preservation in the future, and action steps that will be taken to implement the open space vision.
