Sidewalk & Trail Connectivity Study - Draft Report Available
The Township's Sidewalk + Trail Connectivity Study continues to advance. We recently received a draft report from our planning consultant Simone Collins. The draft report includes extensive inventory and analysis of existing conditions with various maps and mapping tools, along with recommendations, priorities, and potential funding sources for future implementation.
The Connectivity Study Draft Report can be accessed here. We welcome community feedback on the draft report by completely the online form here. The feedback form will be open through May 29, 2023.
The goal of the study is to analyze existing pedestrian connectivity in the Township and propose pedestrian facility improvements to increase safety for residents and visitors. The next public meeting will be June 22 at 7 pm. The Township website has a dedicated page to access associated study and meeting materials to date.

Kriebel Road Trail I Dedication - May 25th at 9 am
The Township is holding a dedication ceremony for the Kriebel Road Trail I on Thursday morning, May 25th, at 9 am, at the trail entrance at Kriebel and Trumbauer Roads. The new trail runs from Valley View Way to Trumbauer Road and was funded with a PennDOT Transportation Alternatives Set-Aside Grant for $846,000.
We ask that attendees park along Rampart Lane and Parkview Drive, being mindful not to block any driveways, and to be careful walking over to the trail entrance at Kriebel and Trumbauer Roads. An extension of this trail – referenced as the Kriebel Road Trail II project, is currently underway and will run along Kriebel Road from the powerline crossing to the Green Lane Park ballfields. This trail extension is expected to finish this summer.
