DELAWARE COUNTY

Survey on township closes Friday

NEWTOWN TOWNSHIP Newtown Township residents have until midnight Friday to weigh in on the future of their community, including development, land conservation, resource protection, housing, and transportation.

The township is updating its comprehensive plan and is asking residents to fill out a 19-question online survey.

The survey asks participants to rate services, including library, police, fire and ambulance, and recreation facilities. They are asked if public transportation, preservation of open space, neighborhood character, historic preservation, and other quality-of-life issues are important to them.

The survey also asks for input on expanding recreational activities, shopping, dining, and entertainment. To access the survey, go to http://www.newtowntownship.org/comprehensive-plan-planning-future/ - Mari A. Schaefer
