A local soccer club needs space to play league games. Lower Frederick had, in recent years, acquired park land at Colonial Drive and Salford Station Road. The Township Board of Supervisor’s agreed that the space had potential for soccer club use. However, parking was not sufficient and the grades were not ideal for a play field.
The Township had another concern. Construction of a new sewer plant would generate excess dirt. That would be followed by construction of a sewer collection system extension, generating a large amount of excess fill material. Trucking that excess material away for disposal costs money. Was there a place to use that material and reduce disposal costs?
