Crews Removing Hazardous Trees

Tue, Aug 4th, 2015

Earlier this week, Asplundh started working to remove dead trees along several roadways in the Township that were identified during a tree assessment sponsored by the Shade Tree Commission. Given the condition of these trees, they were at increased risk of falling during inclement weather, which can result in downed wires and closed roadways.

"Earlier this year, the Township contracted with a certified arborist to identify dead trees that needed to be removed along a variety of roads," said Edgar David, Chairman of the Shade Tree Commission. "Unfortunately, the trees we identified could not be saved and the Township is removing them for safety reasons."

In total, over 40 dead trees will be removed by the end of August. Work will be completed between 7 am and 3:30 pm. The project requires lane restrictions, but no road closures.

The trees being removed are located in the rights-of-way of the following roadways:

- Narcissa Road
- Lewis Lane
- Plymouth Road
- Township Line Road
- Yost Road
- Mount Pleasant Avenue

Open Space Preservation Discussions Continue But No Formal Action Scheduled for July

Tue, Jul 14th, 2015

The Township and Meadowlands Country Club continue discussions on several options to permanently preserve the 128-acre Meadowlands tract as green area or open space. Given the significant amount of public interest in this project, the Township has decided it would be best not to put any proposed agreement between the Township and Meadowlands on the agenda of the Board of Supervisors'
meeting for July, while other options are explored. That means no formal action will be considered at this time.

The Township will continue to provide updates on this open space preservation effort through the Wire, the Township's website, and Twitter.

Supervisors Recognize ADA's 25th Anniversary

Thu, Jul 23rd, 2015

The Board of Supervisors passed a resolution commemorating the 25th anniversary of the Americans with Disabilities Act, or ADA, at their meeting on Tuesday, July 21.

The act prohibits discrimination against people with disabilities in employment, transportation, public accommodation, communications, and governmental activities.

"This is an important anniversary for us to celebrate," said Supervisor Ken Wollman. "The Township takes our duties under the ADA seriously and we continually work to humanize our understanding and implementation of ADA requirements."

Supervisors also noted the contributions of Township resident Carol Christ who is an important ADA advocate. Her assistance has been instrumental in the Township's ongoing comprehensive planning process.

"The more we can go beyond ADA requirements, the more enriched our community will become," said Carol. "There are many residents in the Township who will open doors and offer help and this should be recognized."
