DARLINGTON RIDGE PROJECT
Toll Brothers has begun construction on the Darlington Ridge development between Lenape and Tigue Roads. You can review key documents associated with the development from the Building, Zoning & Code Enforcement page. Recently, Flyway Construction began to mobilize on the south side of Tigue Road in preparation for a stream restoration project. While this is in close proximity to Toll Brothers’ Darlington Ridge project, the two projects are separate.
SPOTTED LANTERNFLY SMASH CAMPAIGN – AND THE WINNER IS…
Thank you to everyone who participated in the Spotted Lanternfly Smash Campaign! Hopefully it was a fun event for your family that got everyone outdoors! Don’t forget that the smashing and scraping doesn’t end with our Campaign, you can continue to scrape egg masses through the winter and the more you scrape now, the less of these little pests there will be in the spring. The winner of the Township Smash Campaign is the Hirs family!! Congratulations for smashing it out of the Township and winning the $50 gift card, compliments of Ace Hardware of West Chester! It was very close with three families in the running! See the attached totals sheet.
In the competition between Townships, which ended October 30th, East Bradford was the winner of the “Golden Swatter Award” all with your help!
