Here’s a news item that I missed when it was actually newsworthy. Nevertheless….
It seems the federal government has approved $110 million dollars to conserve the highland areas of Connecticut, New York, New Jersey and Pennsylvania!
There are already some areas around Harrisburg where the McMansions are starting to scale the mountains and are fucking up the horizon. Hopefully, this will help put a stop to that.
In related news, the folks in South Middleton township are drawing battle lines over a proposal to raise taxes to preserve open space.
This is the area that is basically the border line between Harrisburg’s sprawl and rural farmland. It’s a damn nice place to go bicycling, too.
