The Pennsylvania Land Trust Association filed an amicus curiae brief in Commonwealth Court on April 21 in defense of parkland and open space held by governments for the benefit of the public per the discussion at the March policy committee meeting and the authorization of PALTA’s board. The catalyst of the brief is the litigation regarding Kardon Park (Petition of the Borough of Downingtown). If the court adopts the amicus curiae’s arguments (and it should!), PALTA will have performed a great service for conservation and parks in Pennsylvania.
