Construction has begun on a 900-foot pedestrian trail that will link the existing sidewalk system in the Defford Road and Clyston Road neighborhoods to the nearby shopping center at Skippack Pike. In addition, a small bridge will be built to span the Zacharias Creek. Click here to view the plan.
This trail segment is part of a proposed trail network that links Evansburg State Park to Heebner Park to the historic Peter Wentz Farmstead. The project, which was funded in part by a $63,000 grant from Montgomery County, is scheduled to be completed in late October.
The comprehensive plan is a community's primary guide to future growth and redevelopment. Worcester Township will soon begin the review and update of our Comprehensive Plan. And we're looking for volunteers who want to serve on the Task Force that will lead this important effort. Interested? Click here for more information.
Looking for a safe and responsible way to discard used motor oil, an old bottle of weed killer, or your son’s 8th-grade science experiment gone awry? The good folks at Montgomery County make it easy to dispose of the bad stuff in your home through its annual hazardous household waste collection program. And the service is free for Montgomery County residents! Business and industrial wastes are not accepted. The next HHW collection (and the last collection in 2019!) will be held on Sunday, October 20, at the Lower Merion Transfer Station, 1300 North Woodbine Avenue, Penn Valley, from 9am to 3pm. Click here for lists of acceptable and unacceptable materials, and for additional program information.
There is a fish bowl in the lobby of the Worcester Township Building. And in this fish bowl there is candy…Peanut Butter Balls, to be exact. And lots of them. How many Peanut Butter Balls are in the fish bowl is your guess, and if your guess is the closest without going over the actual number you’ll win the candy, and sweet bragging rights.
To submit your guess to Mary Ann before 4:00pm on October 25. One guess per person please. The winner will be announced in our next newsletter.
The candy is kindly contributed by the employees of Worcester Township, who are not eligible to submit a guess (sorry folks!).
