Selected Past Issues

  • It’s Time for Newtown Township to Update Its Comprehensive Plan! (August 2019). Zoning "rules" are about to change as Newtown Township, Upper Makefield, and Wrightstown (the "Jointure") begin to work on a NEW Newtown Area Joint Comprehensive Plan, something that the Jointure is required to do every 10 years by the Municipalities Planning Code. The Newtown Area Joint Zoning Council (JZC Definition) is recommending that a Bucks County Planning Commission proposal to update the Comprehensive Plan be accepted by each of the member municipalities. Access the entire issue and learn more about the proposal here.

  • Friends of Roberts Ridge Park Reveal Plan to Plant Tens of Native Trees in the Park (July 2019). The first Friends of Roberts Ridge Park (FRRP) “Information Party” was held at the home of Newtown Supervisor John Mack on July 21, 2019. The purpose of the party was to introduce local residents to FRRP’s plan to initially plant 25-30 native shade trees in the park. At the meeting about 25 people heard from several experts and township officials, including John Mack and fellow Supervisor Dennis Fisher, about FRRP’s plan and how it would benefit residents and the Township.

  • My BIG Idea: Openness, Transparency, & Better Communications (June 2019).

At first, I thought this was a bit hokey, but then I got to like the segment and decided to talk about my own BIG Idea. Access the entire issue here.

Summaries of Board of Supervisors/Committee Meetings

BOS IconI write about and comment upon decisions made at Board of Supervisors (BOS) and other public meetings, including Zoning Hearing Board, Planning Commission, and other meetings. Many articles include links to short videos of selected presentations and public comments made at BOS meetings.


I often host surveys whenever an important issue comes before the Board of Supervisors, sometimes even before the issue is discussed by the Board. This gives subscribers an opportunity to voice their opinion anonymously about issues. The results are published in the newsletter and shared with the Board of Supervisors and the general public.

Blog Post Updates

My blog focuses on a range of topics such as water quality, preservation of open space, opioid epidemic, etc. The newsletter provides more in-depth versions of blog posts and includes information that was not available at the time the posts were written. This keeps subscribers up to date on important issues affecting Newtown Township.
