Proposed Public Works Facility
May 10th Public Meeting
PUBLIC WORKS STATEMENT
Thank you all for coming tonight to discuss the Public Works Campus project. Before we review the project, we wanted to share some history about this Initiative; “Public Works Campus”.
This project and the need for a larger Public Works Campus has been a subject of discussion for more than a decade. The composition of the Board of Supervisors has changed significantly over that time, but the Board has consistently recognized the need for new facilities. The need is driven by the demand to deliver essential services to our growing community. The challenge of building a PW Campus required property for adequate workspace. That opportunity became available in late 2018 with the sale of the Hempt property. In discussion w/HSS, TWP purchased 87 acres in 2021, which included a 49-acre parcel off Woods Drive. Also, through the purchase, the Township preserved 22 acres of land for open space through our land preservation program. The 49-acre acquisition allowed us the opportunity to plan for the PW Campus…we finally had the land for a PW facility.
Tonight, Staff & Alloy5 will share an update w/ the PW Campus project, field questions and discuss next steps in this important endeavor.
Please allow us to present the PPT presentation in totality and then we will field questions.
We thank you for attending tonight’s presentation, appreciate the feedback and look forward to sharing the status of this project in the coming months.
