Oakbourne Park Improvements

This project was awarded to MECO Construction in the amount of $5,380,100.  The park improvements, which include three pickleball courts, two tennis courts, basketball court, batting cage, comfort station, pavilion, small playground, trail improvements, paved parking lot, and interpretive signage, are expected to be completed in late spring, 2024.

Thorne Drive Basin Retrofit

As part of its Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) Permit requirements, the Township will be restoring the detention basin on Thorne Drive.  The project will include removing trees, vegetation, and sediment accumulation, regrading/removing the defined channel, installing a new outlet structure that has a low-flow orifice to provide infiltration and extended detention, creating water quality features such as forebays, and installing native plantings.  As a first step, infiltration test pits will be dug in early April.  This project will help improve water quality in the Goose Creek Watershed by reducing sediment from stormwater runoff.

April is Safe Digging Month!


Know What’s Below!

As you jump into spring yard projects, such as planting trees, installing a fence, or any other project that involves excavation, you must call 8-1-1 to notify utility companies 3-10 business days prior to digging. Each utility company with underground lines nearby will mark the approximate location of buried utilities with colored paint, flags, or stakes. The call before you dig process helps to prevent injuries, property damage, and inconvenient utility outages.

The call is toll free and the service is no cost for homeowners digging on their property. You may also submit your request online at

Spring Stormwater Management

Spring weather means rain!   In addition to making our lawns green and flowers bloom, the rain can cause leaves, grass, and other debris to clog storm drains.  The Township road crew consists of 6 people, who monitor and maintain over 950 storm drains and nearly 200 outfalls and retention basins in the Township. While they do their best to keep storm drains free of debris, you can help by avoiding blowing leaves or grass clippings into the streets. In addition, if you have a storm drain adjacent to your property, please consider “adopting” this drain and keeping it clear to help with stormwater management in your neighborhood.

For additional information, please visit our Stormwater Management page.

Know What’s Below – Call 8-1-1 Before You Dig


If you are planning to dig on your property for any reason, such as building a deck, installing a mailbox post, installing a fence, planting a tree, or grinding a stump, call 8-1-1 before you dig.  It’s the law!  There is no fee to property owners for this service.

The American Public Works Association provides a uniform color code system for marking underground utilities. The color of the flag or paint indicates the type of utility.  Public utility companies such as AQUA, PECO, Comcast, and Verizon who have facilities in a potential dig site are required by law to mark the location of underground utilities, usually within 2-3 days of your request.
