HIGHLAND ROAD BRIDGE REPAIR

The contractor will be providing signage about 2 weeks in advance of that date, indicating that Highland Road will be closed from Downingtown Pike to Brookworth Road for the duration of the construction, which we expect to be about 8 weeks. The roadway will be open to the church and local residents only.
Trick-or-Treating will be on Halloween day, Sunday, October 31, from 6-8pm – Rain or Shine.
TROPICAL STORM IDA
Hurricane Ida’s remnants brought catastrophic levels of rain to Chester County. Click here for information about the emergency response status, road and bridge closures, and support resources. Residents and businesses can start the process now by either filing a claim online at www.disasterassistance.gov or calling 1-800-621-FEMA (3362).
CHANGES TO OPEN BURNING REGULATIONS
Open burning is a hot topic (no pun intended) from early spring to late fall. The calls we receive run the gamut – from citizens wanting to burn garden and yard waste to citizens concerned about air quality and fire hazards. In response to these wide-ranging inquires and complaints, the Supervisors and Environmental Advisory Council commenced a review of the Township’s open burning regulations in early 2020. On August 10, this process culminated with the adoption of new open burning regulations via Ordinance 03-2021. If you have questions about open burning, contact the Township Fire Marshal, Rich Hicks, at (610) 436-5108 x104 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
