TOLL BROTHERS TO RESTRICT ROUTE 162

COPELAND SCHOOL ROAD CLOSURE

There has been a delay in the PECO gas project on Copeland School Road. The segment of Copeland School Road to between Frank Road and Kenmara Drive (at the bridge near the sharp turn) will be completely closed (24/7).  The signed detour route will use Sunset Hollow, New Street, and the Route 322 Bypass to go around the work site.  While we are still uncertain of the start date for project, PECO confirmed that the duration of the job should be no more than 5 weeks once it starts (weather permitting).

 

OPEN BURNING PROHIBITED

On April 13, the Board of Supervisors acted to defer the issuance of burning permits until the Township has the opportunity to review and update its burning ordinance, which is out of line with Federal, State, and County standards. Several burning activities are permitted (silviculture, recreational, and ceremonial) with the express permission of the Fire Marshal. If you have questions, please contact Fire Marshal Rich Hicks at rhicks@telling-surprise.flywheelsites.com or (610) 436-5108 x104.
