Township forms new body to deal with greenspace

The Pierce Township Trustees have voted unanimously to create a greenspace committee.

The committee, which was established through a vote at the trustees’ regular meeting March 13, will consist of five township residents appointed by the trustees.

According to Pierce Township Administrator David Elmer, they are already receiving inquiries from the residents and the trustees are excited and thrilled at the response.

“It is a new program that the current board of trustees have been considering since January of 2006,” he said. “There are some wonderful, aesthetic qualities in Pierce Township and this program will only enhance them.”
