Our Project Story
Isett served as Municipal Engineer in Pen Argyl Borough for more than two decades. As Municipal Engineer, Isett developed detailed design and construction documents for various improvements at the Borough-owned Weona Park, a 20-acre park that opened in 1921. Projects included improvements to the park’s main promenade as well as the complete rehabilitation of the 18-hole miniature golf course. The project goal was to maintain the historic ambiance of the park and existing course while promoting ADA accessibility. The construction also included stormwater improvements as well as the addition of native plantings.
Funded in part through a Northampton County Open Space grant, the project benefited from enthusiastic public participation with input gathered from the Park Board, Borough Council, and community residents. The enhanced course opened in the summer of 2014 and in 2015 the Lehigh Valley Planning Commission honored the project with its Open Space Award.
