County fund impasse may stymie Lindberg Park plan

While the Lindberg Park perimeter bikeway and walking path drew positive responses from Salisbury Township residents at a recent meeting, whether or not it will be constructed is open for debate.

The future of the Green Futures Fund, for which Salisbury Township Manager Randy Soriano has applied for funds for Lindberg Park, is in doubt because several on the Lehigh County Board of Commissioners are on the fence in funding park improvements.
