Cranberry Township has long been committed to preserving and maintaining green space.
An agreement to take ownership of the former Denton Powell Farm property is another major step in those efforts.
The Board of Supervisors on March 2 will consider acquiring the 150-year-old, 71-acre farm on Goehring Road as a public amenity.
Throughout the acquisition process, the Township has demonstrated a desire to preserve this historic land as a public asset and operational farm while also using it to promote agricultural education throughout the region.
The Board of Supervisors is beyond excited at the possibilities this agreement can bring. Not only will it become a public asset and present needed educational opportunities, it will bolster the regional farming community while bringing new interest to the agricultural field. The Township worked with longtime resident Andy Hack, executor of the Powell estate, to make the vision a reality.
More information on the Powell Farm project will be released in the coming months.
