RICHARD PROBST: Zoning and Planning Commission- Rich introduced Janet Shea, another member of the Zoning and Planning Commission. Rich stated that they are beginning a revision of a 5 year update on the Recreation Plan. Each Township is invited to submit input. Input should indicate project priorities as well as funds required to complete these projects. Rich indicated that the County is interested in multi-recreational activities. The 5 year update plan is to be submitted in December 2003, and will be a first draft. This update plan would be of assistance when we apply for future grants. The Master Plan recently completed by our Land Use Planning Committee qualifies as input.
