House of Representatives
Session of 2019 - 2020 Regular Session


Posted: November 6, 2019 04:02 PM
From: Representative Matthew D. Dowling
To: All House members
Subject: Ohiopyle Land Transfer Legislation
In the near future I will be introducing legislation that will authorize a land swap between the Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) and the Ohiopyle Borough. The DCNR will convey project 70 lands situated in Ohiopyle Borough, Fayette County, in exchange for the Ohiopyle Borough conveying certain lands to the state to be added to the Ohiopyle State Park.

This will allow additional water access for DCNR and the Ohiopyle State Park. It will provide developable property for Ohiopyle Borough, which will be a future revenue stream. This property conveyance will also allow the Borough additional room to potentially update and adjacent sewage treatment plant if necessary.

Please join me in cosponsoring this important piece of legislation to authorize this land transfer.

Introduced as HB2045
