Horsham Township Receives Montco 2040 Implementation Grant from Montgomery County



Horsham Township has received a 2017 Montco 2040 Implementation Grant for sidewalks along Dresher Road at the PA Business Campus. The grant, aimed at implementing the county comprehensive plan, Montco 2040: A Shared Vision, is one of thirteen recently awarded by the Montgomery County Commissioners. Since the program’s inception in 2016, over $2 million has been awarded to projects.

Horsham Township was awarded this grant to install sidewalks within the public right-of-way along the East side of Dresher Road from New Road to the South side of the property at 537 Dresher Road. These walkways will facilitate pedestrian safety and connections between businesses within the office park, the residential neighborhood, Lukens Park property, Power Line Trail, and two SEPTA bus stops. The project will continue the implementation of the Horsham Business Parks Master Plan, as it addresses Horsham’s goal of modernizing and adapting older office and business parks to remain competitive.

Deborah Tustin, Horsham Council President, states, “We are honored to receive this grant for the future of our community. The grant will allow Horsham Township to continue the vision for PA Business Campus. It will continue to keep Horsham an attractive place to live, work, and play!”

The Montco 2040 Implementation Grant Program is intended to assist municipalities in making targeted physical improvements that achieve real progress toward the goals of Montco 2040 and its themes of Connected Communities, Sustainable Places, and Vibrant Economy.

Projects were evaluated in terms of impact, county and local planning consistency, project readiness, and funding attributes by a committee made up of planning commission board members and interdepartmental county staff. Projects were also given heightened consideration when addressing one of three focus categories for 2017: Walk/Bike Montco – Trails, Paths, Sidewalk Connections and Bike Facilities; Downtown and Community Destination Support; or Revitalization of Office and Business Parks.
