Organization honors former county councilwoman

The Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission named Common Pleas Judge Christine Fizzano Cannon as regional leader of the year during a ceremony earlier this month.

Cannon, a former county council vice chairwoman, was honored for her planning efforts and preservation of the environment. County council honored her again Wednesday.

While on county council, Cannon led the effort to create a "Green Pages" section on the county government website. She was also instrumental in the preservation of Mineral Hill and formed an enviromental and energy task force.

"What an honor it is to receive this award," said Cannon, adding that the achievements marked by the award were a result of the efforts of many people, including her former colleagues on county council and members of the county's planning department.

The reconstruction of the bridge began back in April. The Grant Avenue Bridge is one of 44 bridges maintained by the county.
