On Thursday, May 13, a ribbon cutting ceremony was held celebrating the completion of the Forty Foot Road Widening Project. Those in attendance included Towamencin’s Board of Supervisors (Chuck Wilson, Daniel M. Littley Jr., Laura Smith and Dan Bell), Senator Mensch, Developer Mark Nicoletti, McMahon Associates (Township’s Traffic Engineer), Township staff, representatives from Dock Mennonite Academy and UME: Underwriting Management Experts, who hosted the ceremony.

The long-awaited and highly anticipated project removed the traffic chokepoint along the roadway in the vicinity of the Forty Foot/Tomlinson/Heebner Roads intersection. The $2.6 million project was funded by PennDOT and PA Department of Community & Economic Development grants totaling $1.8 million and a private sector match contribution of $801,000 by developer PSDC. Road-Con Inc. were contracted with the project. 

Chairman Wilson thanked those who made this project possible, including developer Mark Nicoletti, and support from Senator Mensch and former State Representative Kate Harper, as well as, Township staff and the Township’s traffic engineers from McMahon Associates.


Commendations to Fight COVID Task Force Volunteers

At last week’s Board of Supervisors’ meeting, the Board recognized the incredible work of Skippack Pharmacy’s Fight COVID Task Force Volunteer Community, who have special ties to Towamencin with two Township employees serving as core volunteers – Cortney Marengo, our Special Events Facilitator, and Bill Gagliano, of our Public Works Department. The "Fight COVID Task Force” has been instrumental in coordinating and facilitating over 30 clinics County-wide, with approximately 40,000 vaccine doses administered. Several of the largest vaccine clinics have taken place in Towamencin Township.

Dr. Mayank Amin, owner of Skippack Pharmacy and Towamencin resident, has become a local hero and recognized nationally with his dynamic outreach and creative approach to providing vaccines to tens of thousands of County residents. The following were presented with commendations by the Board: Dr. Mayank Amin, Dipun Amin, Mitchel Rotholz, Bill Gagliano, Jennifer Speer-Mondillo, Cortney Marengo, Stephanie Glover, Erica Mabry, Isabelle Lawler, Keyur Patel, Lindsey Walkoe, Christine Jacobson and Charlene Prutzer.

Fischer's Park Bathrooms & Trash Concerns

In recent weeks, Township staff has received reports of disgusting bathroom conditions, and large volumes of trash left behind from pavilion usage, causing unsanitary conditions for fellow patrons and many hours of cleanup and sanitizing. While the majority of park-goers are sensible and respectful of others, it is necessary to remind the public of the following:

1) Be considerate of others, always flush the toilet after use.
2) Do not use excessive amounts of toilet paper or flush wipes, paper towels or non-toilet paper products. This causes clogs & backups, preventing others from using the facilities & many unnecessary hours spent cleaning up the aftermath.
3) Wash hands after use.
4) If you notice vandalism or suspicious activity, please report to the Township.

5) Dispose of your trash. If you're planning a gathering at the park or reserving a pavilion, it is your responsibility to pick-up after your guests and dispose of all trash bags.
