Hershey’s Mill Dam Committee

The Board of Supervisors has determined that the area of the impoundment above the Hershey’s Mill Dam is suitable for use as open space, after the dam has been breached. The Board of Supervisors issued a request for proposal for a consultant to develop a plan on how the area above each of the dams can be developed and/or utilized for open space, after the dams have been breached.  The Hershey’s Mill Dam Committee is tasked with collaborating with the land planner to develop and implement a plan for this area.
