Thus, we are requesting that a formal plan be presented which details each of the following:


- the sources of funding and fee structures being considered; - the plan for implementation of fees and fee collection locations; - a map of the new area depicting the location of Park boundaries and Preserve boundaries; - details of what ​activities will be or will not be allowed in Park/Preserve; - a map that includes information on any projected or future plans for acquisition of additional private or public lands; and - the projected impacts (both positive and negative) that this proposal would have on Milford Borough's residents, taxpayers, and visitors (i.e., Borough tax revenues, roads, businesses, and emergency services). Yours sincerely, Joseph Dooley Council President, Milford Borough Pike County PA
