Local Municipalities Awarded Millions in Grants from PennDot and Montco!


2040 Implementation Grants to Local Municipalities

Jody Holton (pictured to the right) and Scott France of the Montgomery County Planning Commission shared information about the thirteen municipalities awarded grants as part of the 2040 Implementation Grant Program. 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.
