Place­mak­ing grant builds play­ground in Ken­nett

Daily Local News (West Chester, PA) - - REAL ESTATE -

The Sub­ur­ban West Real­tors As­so­ci­a­tion has re­ceived a $1,500 place­mak­ing grant from the Na­tional As­so­ci­a­tion of Real­tors to help fund the in­stal­la­tion of a play­ground at Herb Pen­nock Park.

The play­ground in­stal­la­tion was ac­com­plished through a part­ner­ship be­tween Sub­ur­ban West, the Ken­nett Area Parks and Recre­ation Board, Ken­nett Square Bor­ough, and Ken­nett Town­ship on the project.

“Real­tors live, work and vol­un­teer in their com­mu­ni­ties and take im­mense pride in work­ing to im­prove them,” said Leann Mur­phy, chair­man of Sub­ur­ban West and a Real­tor with Re/Max Pre­ferred in West Ch­ester. “This grant will al­low us to ad­dress ar­eas in the com­mu­nity that are in need of im­prove­ment and cre­ate a place where friends and neigh­bors can come to­gether.”

Place­mak­ing grants are awarded to lo­cal and state Real­tor as­so­ci­a­tions to help them and their mem­bers ini­ti­ate place­mak­ing pro­jects in com­mu­ni­ties they serve. Real­tor as­so­ci­a­tions and their mem­bers are ac­tively en­gaged in their com­mu­ni­ties and know the neigh­bor­hoods and the prop­er­ties that would ben­e­fit most from th­ese im­prove­ment ef­forts.

“As the Ken­nett area be­comes more at­trac­tive and wel­com­ing, nearby prop­er­ties may also in­crease in value,” said Mur­phy.
