The Planning and Construction Department is responsible for the planning, design, and construction of the District’s facilities, trails, and greenways. Most of the district’s trails and small scale construction projects are completed in-house with district-owned equipment. Specialized construction such as larger facilities and paving are bid out.
We are committed to producing park amenities that are environmentally and fiscally responsible and to using resources efficiently. This philosophy includes a low-impact-design approach to storm water management, the reuse or recycling of materials, local sourcing when possible, the use of high efficiency systems and “green” products, and other energy conservation initiatives, as appropriate to individual projects.
Community Multi-Use Trail Improvement Grants
Preservation Parks of Delaware County has made $100,000 available in our Community Multi-use Trail Improvement Grant Program (CTIG). CTIG is intended to assist in the acquisition, development, and maintenance of multi-use paved trails in Delaware County. Cities, villages, townships, park districts, and non-profit organizations whose project boundaries are completely within Delaware County are welcome to apply for funding. If you have any questions regarding this program, please contact Matt Simpson at (740) 524-8600 x2 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
