The Master Site Plan for the Van Landeghem Tract has been completed by Remington, Vernick & Beach. The final report is based on feedback from public meetings, focus groups and a public survey regarding potential uses for the property.
The Van Landeghem Tract is a 34.6-acre parcel located in Montgomery County that straddles two suburban communities: East Norriton Township and West Norriton Township.
This property was purchased by East Norriton and West Norriton Townships through funds provided by Montgomery County in accordance with the Montgomery County Open Space Ordinance (Ordinance 93-3). West Norriton Township acquired 15.10 acres on the south side of the parcel and East Norriton Township acquired 19.54 acres of land on the north side of the parcel. The total amount of funds provided to both municipalities was $1,051,520.
The Townships received a grant from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (PA-DCNR) to produce a park master plan. Four (4) public meetings were held over the course of 16 months and an online survey was performed by West Norriton residents.The general consensus of these meetings was that many residents did not desire active park improvements; they wanted the project to focus on land stewardship and ecologic preservation.
