Welcome to East Bradford Township

East Bradford Township strives to support the highest quality of life for current and future residents by: Being accessible, accountable, responsive, and respectful to all; Providing essential services with fiscal soundness; Promoting good stewardship of the Township’s scenic, natural, and historic resources; and Promoting vital social and physical connections between our residents and neighbors.

 

Consistent with the State stay-at-home order and the County’s “essential services only” status, the Township building will remain closed to the public – with staff working remotely – until at least June 4.

JUNE MEETINGS

As we continue to evaluate the status of the COVID-19 virus, we will determine whether May public meetings will be conducted in person or via teleconference.  The status of each meeting will be posted on the calendar and on the Boards and Commissions page.  If you have questions, contact Mandie Cantlin at mcantlin@eastbradford.org or (610) 436-5108 x102.

 

CONSTRUCTION ACTIVITY

Recognizing that the construction industry is vital to Pennsylvania’s economy, Governor Wolf has ordered that construction activities may resume statewide as of May 1. Contractors working in Pennsylvania are required to adhere to the standards set forth in Guidance for Businesses in the Construction Industry Permitted to Operate During the COVID-19 Disaster Emergency. Before East Bradford Township employees and representatives enter a job site to perform inspections, we are requiring that contractors and property owners attest that all individuals working at the job site are adhering to these guidelines, in addition to several supplemental standards. Therefore, before scheduling inspections, contractors should complete the Township’s Acknowledgement of Adherence to COVID-19 Operation Guidance document and email the completed form to rhicks@eastbradford.org and mneedles@eastbradford.org. Questions should be directed to Building Code Official Richard Hicks at rhicks@eastbradford.org or (610) 436-5108 x104. Anyone with concerns about the enforcement of the Governor’s orders should contact the State Police at (610) 486-6280 before contacting the West Chester Police Department.

BRANDYWINE VALLEY SCENIC BYWAY

The Townships of Chadds Ford, East Bradford, Kennett, Pennsbury, and Pocopson have all appointed Commissioners who serve on the Brandywine Valley Scenic Byway Commission, which manages the affairs of the Byway (designated by Pennsylvania in 2005 as a state byway). Recently, the Commission has been in contact with our PennDOT byway advisors about an opportunity to apply for National Scenic Byway status. The window of opportunity is tight, however. The application to the FHWA needs to be filed by June 15, 2020. Click here to learn more.
