​Attached is the Final Report for a rebate project at the Wastewater Treatment Plant.  The Township received a rebate for over $70,000 from MetEd due to this project.

  

Earlier this year the Board retained Simone Collins and Urban Partners to undertake a market analysis of the area in Exeter and between Route 422 and the river to determine what type of market demand exists in the near and intermediate terms.  This is the first step in developing a master plan for this area.
The presentation which was made to the Board at their June 13 meeting is attached and can be reviewed in the meeting minutes sector of this website.
The Board authorized Simone Collins and Urban Partners to prepare a master plan for the area.  It is anticipated that the draft Master Plan will be presented to the Board in late summer/early fall.
  

Exeter Township has been informed by PennDOT of their plan to restripe a section of Perkiomen Avenue to permit a left turn lane.
Despite a lack of notification by PennDOT, residents affected by the proposed change approached the Board of Supervisors to convey their concerns, particularly with the potential loss of parking for residents and businesses in some areas.
The Exeter Police Department and PennDOT subsequently provided information with respect to the type and number of vehicular accidents and resulting injuries (see graphics).
The Township Engineer prepared a plan to illustrate what the result could be if the lanes were shifted to the south and the lane width was reduced (see graphic).  The loss of parking would still occur.
A proposal was made to consider reducing the number of travel lanes in each direction from two (2) lanes to one (1) lane and providing a left turn lane.  The width of the roadway would be reduced from five (5) lanes to three (3) lanes.  This would provide the potential for parking, improved pedestrian access and an improved streetscape.
The Board directed the administration and Township Engineer to prepare concept plans and meet with PennDOT to review their proposal.  The administration will report back to the Board within sixty (60) days.
