South Fayette master parks plan in the works

Citing the expansion of South Fayette, township commissioners voted to approve a consultant to create a master plan for the township’s parks.

Commissioners approved hiring Herbert, Rowland & Grubic Inc. to complete the new master plan.

The township’s last master plan for parks was completed in 2005.

“The township’s grown. The parks have grown,” Commissioner Ray Pitetti said. “The number of children has grown.”

Township Parks and Recreation board member Deb Whitewood said that when the master plan is complete, the township can apply for grants to implement it.

Herbert, Rowland and Grubic’s proposal includes a cost of $47,925 to complete the plan.

Township vehicles

Some of the township vehicles with the most mileage are being replaced.

Commissioners approved the purchase of three 2018 Ford Explorers from Woltz & Wind Ford in Collier Township.

Each Explorer will cost the township $28,840, which includes a $6,800 discount through Pennsylvania’s cooperative purchasing program.

They will replace three 2004 SUVs, each with more than 100,000 miles and body and mechanical deficiencies.

Building and Code Enforcement, Public Works and Planning and Engineering departments will each get one of the Explorers.

The master plan and vehicle purchase each passed 4-0. Commissioner Lisa Malosh was absent from the meeting.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
