Winter Storm Tips

1. Please remove trash cans from roads. Plows must go around trash cans and other obstructions, which prevents curb-to-curb plowing.

2. Please wait until plows clear your street to shovel your driveway apron. This will help precent your driveway from being plowed in.

3. As you shovel, please clear fire hydrants near your property and make sure your mailbox is accessible.

4. Please leave at least 100 feet between your car and snow plowing equipment.

5. To report a snow-related issue during a storm, call 610-277-2400 during business hours and 610-279-9033 after hours.

6. Call 911 to report an emergency during a storm.

7. To report a power outage, please call PECO at 1-800-841-4141. Do not assume that a neighbor has already called PECO. Please do not call Police for power outages.

Be Part Of Whitpain's Comprehensive Plan

Tue, Jan 20th, 2015

The Township has officially kicked off the next phase of the development of its comprehensive plan.

The plan, titled Whitpain 2035: 4 Villages Within a Community, will guide Whitpain's direction over the next generation. What exactly is a comprehensive plan? A comprehensive plan, or comp plan as it is often called, is an official statement adopted by a local government which directs the physical development of the community.

The Township started the development of a new comprehensive plan last year. The next phase, which is part of a multi-year consensus-building effort to create a new and genuinely sustainable comprehensive plan, is starting in earnest with four community meetings. The dates and locations are:

February 4, 7 p.m. at Montgomery County Community College
February 25, 7 p.m. at the Manor House at Prophecy Creek Park
March 11, 7 p.m. at Arborcrest
March 25, 7 p.m. at 7 p.m. at Centre Square Fire Company


Residents can contribute to the development plan by attending the meetings and by completing a short survey.

"Whitpain 2035 will strengthen our community, and make it and even better place to live in, work in, and enjoy for generations to come, " said Supervisor Chairman Fred Conner.

A committee composed of residents, supervisors and staff will guide the development of the plan. The Township hopes you will be an integral part of Whitpain 2035.
