BRIGHTON TWP. The community received $ 250,000 from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) recreation and conservation grant program. The award will be used for the Brighton Township Fireman’s Social Hall.
The Brighton Grange Renovation Project became necessary as members and volunteers of the Brighton Township VFD made it impossible to operate in the existing building.
The project proposes renovating the existing building to ensure compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), energy efficiency, and the necessary improvements in form and function. In addition, the parking lot is being renovated to improve access and traffic circulation, as well as to improve rainwater management and landscaping.
“Brighton Township has taken a big step towards meeting the requirements of the existing building. By updating ADA compliance and moving some products to more energy efficient designs, they are making sure the building is up to date and accessible to its community, ”said Senator Elder Vogel, R-47, New Sewickley Congregation. “I fully support Brighton Township and I was delighted to hear that they have received funding.
