Potter Township Tank Farm / Rocky Bottom Park

Master Site Development Planning Project

Press Release #1 – October 10, 2017

Public Workshop Notice

Potter Township, PA is designing a master plan for its 63-acre “Tank Farm” and adjoining 25-acre Independence Conservancy lands in the Raccoon Creek Greenway. The site of the proposed park is the former Monaca Air Force Petroleum Oil and Lubricant Retail Distribution Facility (MAFPOL), built by the Department of Defense during World War II. Potter Township acquired the “Tank Farm” for public recreation in 2007. The future park could highlight nature-centered activities like paddling, floating, fishing, walking trails, pavilions, and nature/history-based play areas.

The public is encouraged to share ideas for the park master plan. The first opportunity will be Wednesday, October 25th, 2017 from 6:00PM to 8:00 PM at the Potter Township Municipal Building located at 206 East Mowry Road, Monaca, PA 15061.

People of all ages are welcome to attend this community meeting. Activities will include:

  1. Reviewing findings about existing site conditions as well as preliminary ideas for the types of recreational uses that may be appropriate in the Raccoon Creek Greenway; and
  2. Giving people of all ages the chance to contribute their ideas, vision, and direction for the park’s development.

The park master plan should be finished by the summer of 2018. It will serve as a roadmap for building the features of the new park. The project was partially funded by a Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources Community Conservation grant with matching funds from Potter Township.

Residents can also stay updated on the project by contacting Potter Township at          724-495-6220 or Independence Conservancy at vmichaels@independenceconservancy.org


The Potter Township Planning Commission will not meet in October.
