Getting to the PECO Power Line Trail could become easier for residents living at the Wynmere development if Horsham secures funds to connect the trail to the Herman Road neighborhood.
On Wednesday night, the Horsham Township Council approved a resolution to apply for a $10,000 PECO Energy Green Regions Open Space Program grant, which is offered in conjunction with the Natural Lands Trust. The application deadline is Dec. 14.
If the grant is awarded, Horsham Township Manager Bill Walker said the road connecting the power line trail would be paved next year.
"Residents have created a trail thorugh our open space. It’s become a dirt trail and a muddy trail after rain," Walker said. "They’ve ben asking the township to pave it."
In addition to the proposed connection to Herman Road, Walker said the evolution of the former 70-acre Horsham Valley Golf Club into a 94-unit housing development will mean power line trail connections on Babylon Road and Limekiln Pike next year.
