PIKE COUNTY, PA — Pike County residents are invited to visit www.delawarehighlands.org/pike-county-survey to complete a brief online survey and to share their opinions about protection of the clean water, healthy lands and scenic views that contribute to the high quality of life along the Upper Delaware River.
In 2005, people in Pike County, PA voiced their strong support at the ballot box, approving a referendum to dedicate up to $10 million over 10 years to preserve and protect Pike County’s land and water for future generations. The question passed with a 68% majority.
The initial Scenic Rural Character Preservation Program was limited to a period of 10 years, which has now passed. Filling out the survey will help the Delaware Highlands Conservancy, the local land trust serving Pike and Wayne counties in PA and Sullivan and Delaware counties in New York, to maintain the high quality of life in the river valley.
