Trenton –Senator Troy Singleton today highlighted $500,000 in funding he supported in the Fiscal Year 2024 budget for Moorestown Township, which will go towards improving and creating outdoor recreational spaces.
“Outdoor recreation is paramount to fostering community and providing kids with space to play and grow,” said Senator Troy Singleton (D-Burlington), Chair of the Senate Community and Urban Affairs Committee. “This funding will be instrumental in revitalizing Yancy Adams Park and transforming the Town Green open field into a true community gathering space. I was proud to advocate for and support Moorestown’s request for these funds.”
Senator Singleton obtained the funding through his sponsorship of a resolution in the Fiscal Year 2024 budget. Part of the $500,000 award will go towards updating and revitalizing Yancy Adams Park. The funding will also support the Town Green Project, which will renovate and transform the site of the former township library into a public gathering space through the construction of a stage area, and the addition of lighting and landscaping.
Moorestown Mayor Nicole Gillespie said, “We are deeply grateful for Senator Singleton's help in securing these funds for Moorestown, and thrilled to have the opportunity to create two new outdoors spaces that will provide residents with opportunities to enjoy nature and community close to our historic downtown. Because of this funding and our Senator's support, Yancy-Adams park will become a fitting tribute to the residents for whom it is named and the important work they did for our community, and we'll soon have a vibrant and inviting outdoor event space at our Municipal Complex.”
