- W. Creek Rd to become one way in April (3/30/2020)
During their 3/23 meeting, the Board of Supervisors approved a Transportation and Geotechnical Services proposal for a section of W. Creek Road requiring significant repairs. The short term plan (starting April 2020) is to make this section a temporary one lane road controlled by stop signs. This will take some of the weight off the road while engineering and construction plans are developed. Construction is likely to begin in Spring 2021.
- Pocopson Park Playground Closure (3/26/2020)
The playground apparatus (swings, climbing sets, etc.) at Pocopson Park is off limits until further notice. The purpose is to prevent the spread of the COVID-19 virus through contact with contaminated surfaces and to discourage the congregating of individuals wishing to use the apparatus.
Pocopson Township Community Parks (pathways, trails, etc.) are still open and people are encouraged to walk outside, jog, ride bikes, etc. Please do not congregate and do maintain social distancing measures.
Let’s all do our part to help flatten the curve and prevent an outbreak. View flyer HERE.
- Barnard House property on Wawaset Road (2/21/2020)
Many of the windows at the Barnard House have been removed for glazing and painting. Repair/replacement of sills, sashes, jambs and trim is underway and should be completed by spring.
The barn on the property has been disassembled by the Public Works crew. Because some of the barn wood may be incorporated into the design of the new Township building, the Township has no plans yet to sell or otherwise dispose of the salvaged wood.
