The Open Space Task Force is working to identify and recommend a strategy to implement the County’s Open Space, Recreation, and Greenway Plan.
Delaware County Council convened the Open Space Task Force in October 2016 to recommend a strategy to implement the County’s Open Space, Recreation, and Greenway Plan in an effective and responsible manner. The Task Force is comprised of leaders from local municipalities, nonprofit organizations, the business community, and several County staff members. The diverse background of the Task Force members is crucial to developing a recommendation that is inclusive of all Delaware County communities.
The Task Force has reviewed the County’s Open Space, Recreation, and Greenway Plan, with particular emphasis on implementation methods and progress, and is considering the many opportunities and challenges in implementing the plan. The Task Force has reviewed programs from other counties in the region and discussed the benefits to different approaches. It is in the process of forming this research and analysis into a recommended implementation strategy to County Council. On September 12, Delaware County Council formally approved the Task Force's recommended implementation strategy.
