JOEL AND TINA AMES DONATE LAND

A proposed recreational trail in the

City of Lancaster has received a

donation of two parcels of land.

The Lancaster Common Council has

accepted the donation from Joel and

Tina Ames. The parcels are located

between Elm and Linden Street.

The city has agreed to pay the

pro-rated portion of property taxes

on the parcels.

City Administrator Steve Winger

says the city is hoping to have other

land donations in the future. Winger

says he’s looking at the Safe Routes

to School Program to help pay for

developing the trail, along with a

grant from the Department of

Natural Resources. A recreational

trail would be used primarily for

walking, jogging, and biking.
