Each spring the Public Works Department sweeps the Township streets. Sweeping helps protect our waterways and keeps our neighborhoods clean and livable. Debris on the streets can clog storm drains and pollute our lakes and rivers.
Spring street sweeping begins in March 2021 and it takes about 5 weeks to complete.
Which streets will be swept?
All streets owned and adopted by the Township will be swept. Streets in new subdivisions under construction will be the responsibility of the subdivision developer. Private streets are the responsibility of the condominium/townhouse development owner.
- “No Parking signs” — Crews will post “No Parking” signs at least 24 hours before sweeping residential streets. Parking will be banned from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. on the day of sweeping.
How can residents help?
To provide efficient and quick sweeping, our equipment needs to get to the curb without obstructions. Please observe the following:
- Try to avoid Monday to Friday daytime parking on your street if possible.
- Do not put your garbage/recycling/yard waste containers on the street.
- Small stones on the curb and sidewalks, can be swept onto the street.
- Safety is important for everyone, so please watch children carefully when sweepers are on the roadway.
When will the sweeping be finished?
The spring street sweeping program typically takes about 4-5 weeks to complete and could be delayed by cold or wet weather, parked vehicles or excessive amounts of winter anti-skid material.
Your cooperation and patience is greatly appreciated!
The Township is looking for an individual interested in being the alternate member on the Zoning Hearing Board. Please contact the Township office if interested.
The Township has been notified on behalf of the Developer, Core5 Industrial Partners, that on April 16th at 5am concrete pouring will commence. With night work, you may experience noise disturbances within the nightly hours. *On March 19, 2021 the Township was notified that there will be no more blasting with this first building.
Using explosives are highly regulated and requires permits at the state level. Per Department of Environmental Protection (DEP), many people are often concerned about the effects blasting may have on their home because blasting may cause homes to shake. The effects of blasting may rattle windows, dishes and pictures hung on the wall.
Please call the Township Office to receive the site contact information for any concerns or complaints regarding this project. Blasting reports are required by the Township Ordinances and are public record upon request to review. We do not receive these reports right away. It does take a few weeks for the Township to receive them.
You may also contact DEP for further complaints in regards to Explosive Regulation in Pennsylvania. The second page of this document gives contact information.
Thank you for your understanding and patience during this time.
The I-83 Master Plan recommended a new interchange — Exit 26 at SR 921/Canal Road —to alleviate area congestion and improve traffic flow at Exit 24 to the south (SR 238/Church Road; Emigsville) and Exit 28 to the north (SR 297/North Susquehanna Trail; Strinestown).
If Exit 26 is approved by PennDOT and the Federal Highway Administration (FHWA), the new interchange will take several years to fund and build. Meanwhile, development pressure in the vicinity of future Exit 26 will likely intensify.
The four adjacent municipalities—Conewago, East Manchester, and Manchester townships and Manchester Borough—are proactively preparing a land use plan for the Exit 26 impact area (parcels within a five-minute drive of the proposed interchange or other areas identified by the steering committee). The plan may affirm current zoning or recommend revisions in one or more municipalities. The plan’s recommendations would be implemented through municipal zoning updates.
