Update: riverfront public access projects receive $1 million from DVRPC

If the fervor around the Phillies and the presidential election has dominated your life over the last couple weeks, you may have missed the Inquirer article announcing that 13 different projects received grants from the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission (DVRPC), “aimed at encouraging more public access to two rivers long monopolized by private industry – the Schuylkill and the Delaware.”

The grants will support everything from riverfront events to greenway planning and range from $25,000 to $125,000.
