My name is Dee.

I am trying to find the steps in figuring out how to calulate the acres with within the
South Park Township in Allegheny County, Pennsylvania that heavy industry cannot be built.

The buffer zone must be 0.25 miles away from parks. I need to know how many acres within
South Park Township is excluded from heavy industry?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
