In 2012, Warrington Township, Pennsylvania passed a voter-approved referendum committing $3 million to open space protection. The EFC worked with Warrington Township to identify ways in which the community could leverage its open space dollars to serve multiple community priorities and gain additional benefits the community had not identified. The EFC provided a set of recommendations to the township, including identifying and prioritizing funding sources for the township to access, developing partnerships with existing local organizations, and integrating green infrastructure into land conservation planning and project site design.
