    Plans for a community center in Lower Makefield Township are back on after a meeting Tuesday night produced two new initiatives.

     

    The township has been looking into plans for a center for some time, and town supervisors now have two options to consider.

    Resident and real estate developer Gary Cruzan has offered to work with another local agency to develop a center at no cost to the taxpayers, the Bucks County Courier Times reports.

    Cruzan has until March 2 to come through with an agreement, and the township has a backup plan waiting in the wings. Lower Makefield may be able to get a $1 million state grant if the township provides matching funds. The $1 million the township already paid for the 23-acre Samost tract could qualify as the matching funds.

    Both plans were approved by the township supervisors.
