CAPE MAY COURT HOUSE – A playground for children with physical disabilities will be put in at the Clarence and Georgiana Davies Sports Complex, thanks to a $268,182 state grant.

The money will also allow the township to install interior and exterior doors at Town Hall that will open with the touch of a button. That will make the township compliant with the federal Americans with Disabilities Act, Mayor Dan Lockwood recently announced in a press release.

“I am so pleased that we will be able to provide a playground that will be accessible to all of the children in our community,” Committeewoman Susan DeLanzo said. 

Township planner, Elizabeth Terenik, said “The recent Open Space and Recreation Plan Survey showed a strong interest in the township for playground amenities and there were requests for ADA accessibility and compliance at our recreation facilities.”

The township’s open space and recreation plan is being reworked and is to be presented to the public at a meeting in March. The plan would help preserve open space and expand recreational opportunities.

The money comes from the state Department of Community Affairs Community Development Block Grant Program.
