In the near future, I intend to introduce legislation amending the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code (MPC) to provide for the manner in which recreational fees are utilized.
Currently, the Section 503 of MPC only allows fees incurred from payment in lieu of recreational facilities to be used only for the purpose of providing park or recreational facilities accessible to the development. Fees may only be used for costs incurred to construct the specific recreational facilities for which the fees were collected.
My legislation would remove the language found in Section 503 that requires these fees to be used for the specific recreation facilities for which the fees were collected, and will permit municipalities to utilize these funds not only for providing, but also operating or simply maintaining park or recreational facilities anywhere within the municipality.
If you have any questions regarding this legislation, please contact Danielle Brown in my office at 783-3815 or email@example.com.
Introduced as HB1052
