A Future for Everybody - Protecting our Parks and Open Space Opportunities
Parks are an important part of our community. Despite the many and increasing demands on our budget, over the past several years Media Democrats on Borough Council have made it a priority to fund refurbishing Houtman Park, to create Manchester and Heritage Parks, and to make improvements to the Tot Lot. Media Borough was also the lead contributor to the recent improvements to the Media Elementary School playground.
"From my bookkeeping skills and experience serving on the Parks and Recreation Board for seven years, I know the importance of staying fiscally responsible so that we are in a position to take advantage of the opportunity to purchase land when it becomes available for sale, as well as to improve and preserve our existing parks, which play such an important role in bringing generations together.” - Lisa Gelman
Media Democrats’ endorsed candidates, likewise, pledge to protect and continue to improve on our parks and public spaces as we continue our trajectory of responsible growth.
