It's a good day for open space

In Lower Saucon, 2,202 voters supported a plan to preserve farms, woodlands and historic areas with an earned income tax hike, according to Tuesday's unofficial results. Residents approved the measure by a count of 3,659 to 1,457

Because of the referendum, the earned income tax rate in Lower Saucon will increase from 1.0 percent to 1.25 percent for the next five years, raising nearly $4 million to prevent open areas from being developed.

Other townships that voted yes for open space initiatives can be found here.
