Don't Just Bitch About Traffic. Do Something! Volunteer to Help Make Improvements.

Are you concerned about traffic and the impact it has on you and your neighbors? Now is your chance to have a say in how traffic affects your community.

The Newtown Township Board of Supervisors is currently accepting resumes for consideration for the Newtown Township Traffic Impact Fee Advisory Committee (TIFAC). Resumes will be accepted until 12:00 noon on Friday, May 11, 2018.

An example of the impact on traffic affecting neighborhoods was the proposed Arcadia Green development, which would have destroyed a home on High Street in the Newtown Crossing neighborhood to make way for an egress road (read “Newtown Crossing vs Arcadia: Truth to Power!”). Traffic would then pass through other roads in the Newtown Crossing to access Newtown Bypass – a limited access road. Several people from Newtown Crossing complained about the resulting traffic through their development via the egress road, which would endanger children and pets who are used to play and roam on quiet streets such as High Street.

The TIFAC assists with developing studies required for the adoption of the Ordinance regulating traffic impact fees, and provides recommendations to the Board of Supervisors for approval or disapproval of reports at various stages of the process, in accordance with Pennsylvania Act 209 and the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code.

The TIFAC will coordinate with professional traffic engineers and will be primarily focused on assessing existing traffic conditions throughout the Township, developing recommendations for potential traffic improvements - such as location of additional traffic signals, and developing impact fees for future development based on potential traffic improvements.

All applications will be considered, however, professionals with backgrounds in Real Estate, Development, and building industry that reside or conduct business in Newtown Township are strongly urged to apply. 

Please submit a letter of interest and resume to Olivia Kivenko, Newtown Township, 100 Municipal Drive, Newtown, PA 18940, by email to oliviak@newtownpa.gov, or by fax at (215) 968-5368.
