The Township received two grants for the construction of a Multi Use Court at the Greenfield Community Park.

The first grant is from the Oris C. Hirtzel and Beatrice Dewey Hirtzel Foundation in the amount of $ 55,000.00.  This foundation focuses on community, economic development, higher education, and human services in North East Township and Borough, Greenfield Township and Ripley, New York.

The second grant in the amount of $ 100,000.00 will be coming from the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR).

A basketball court has been on the improvements list for the park for quite a few years. After an on-site review of the possible project, the DCNR grant specialist suggested applying for a multi-use court. The court will be constructed in the area of the current volleyball net. It will contain a full basketball court, pickle ball court, four square court and tennis court markings giving multiple options for play.

Construction is planned for 2024.

None of this money can be used for road improvements, only recreational purposes.
