Cheltenham Township is Looking for Residents to Fill Citizen Committee Vacancies
Newly-Formed Traffic Calming Committee Will Address Neighborhood Traffic Concerns
ELKINS PARK, PA – Commissioners and the Township Administration are looking for dedicated residents to volunteer to serve on citizen committees that tackle a diverse range of community issues, including its new Traffic Calming Committee.
In November 2019, Cheltenham Township adopted a Traffic Calming Policy that reflects the Township’s commitment to address a wide range of traffic-related issues, including vehicular and pedestrian mobility, efficiency and safety. The Traffic Calming Policy is designed to address traffic concerns on local roads, such as speeding, high volume, cut-through traffic and pedestrian safety.
The Township’s traffic calming program requires the establishment of a Traffic Calming Committee consisting of Township public safety personnel, Commissioners and residents representing each ward to review traffic complaints and recommend solutions. Read the Traffic Calming Policy for more information.
“Every community has work to be done, and there is no better way to make an impact in your neighborhood than by volunteering on a local level, so please consider choosing Cheltenham and becoming a member on a citizen committee,” said Bryan T. Havir, Township Manager.
