Lindberg Park incurs damage from Hurricane Sandy

The Salisbury Township Recreation Advisory Committee met Nov. 19 for their regularly scheduled meeting and discussed damage to the parks courtesy of Hurricane Sandy.

Most parks in Salisbury Township escaped Hurricane Sandy damage with the exception of Lindberg Park where a large tree was uprooted and fell on playground equipment.

Township personnel have been notified of the damage.

Two fallen trees were also noted at Louise Park.

Members of the recreation committee thanked the parks department for their continued efforts in keeping the parks in good shape.

Genny Baillie said Salisbury High School has requested the use of the Lindberg Park tennis courts for the students.

Frank McCullough asked about leaf pickup and was advised to email the township manager with a copy to the public works department to determine where the crews are currently working.

The committee has requested money for Salisbury resident activities in the 2013 budget.

They are currently planning a community Easter egg hunt tentatively scheduled for 10 a.m. March 23, 2013. This is a week before Easter which is March 31, 2013.

Locations for the egg hunt were discussed; Frank Farm was considered but there was concern about parking. Salisbury Middle School was another location taken under advisement.

Anntonella DiMatteo and Frank McCullough will represent Salisbury Township at a meeting for area recreation boards 10 a.m. Nov. 29 at the Lower Macungie Township Community Center regarding a parks and recreation open space plan.

Participating municipalities include Salisbury, Emmaus, Longswamp Township, Upper Milford, Macungie, Lower Macungie, South Whitehall, Allentown and others.

The next recreation advisory committee meeting is Dec. 10.
