2019 Fall Township Newsletter

Fall Newsletter

Dear Lyceum Newsletter Readers,

Fall is here and the leaves are starting to change color.  Winter is right around the corner. Let’s hope that November and December this year are quiet on the winter weather front.  Thank you once again for your interest in the happenings of New Garden Township. Following is an update on a number of matters of general interest:

Sale of Sewer System – The Township is still working to complete the sale of the sewer system to Aqua Wastewater, Inc. The Board of Supervisors and the Township Sewer Authority held a joint meeting on Monday, September 23rd to discuss changes to the Assets Purchase Agreement.  At the end of the meeting both Boards approved the 3rd Amendment to the Assets Purchase Agreement. The Township and Aqua are hopeful that the deal can be completed by the end of the 1st quarter of 2020.

Newark Road and Baltimore Pike Intersection – The Township’s traffic consultant, McMahon Associates, is still working on the preliminary engineering for the project and is hopeful to have this engineering completed by the Spring of 2020. The project is currently on the PENN DOT transportation plan for construction in 2023.               

Newark Road and Hillendale Road – Construction has begun on the intersection. Utility relocation has been ongoing but sporadic. The Township is being told by PennDot’s contractor that in the Spring of 2020 a detour will be going into effect to allow for the construction of the improvements at the intersection itself. Look to the Township’s Facebook page and website for more information.
