There are people who grew up in the area, however, there are people that are new to our Township.  I have told you where you can obtain information involving West Pottsgrove. I will now tell you about several places in the area that are points of interest.

This has been mentioned before but if you want more information such as road closures, bad weather events, or local information, please sign up at ReadyMontco.org for township-wide notifications.

I know this message is a little different. It was meant to be informative on where you can find information that you may require in the Township. In addition, if you are looking for something to do now that the weather is getting warmer, I have listed points of interest in the area.

Just a reminder with nice weather comes people out walking and riding bicycles. Please be aware when driving your car on our roadways.

On behalf of the Board of Commissioners, enjoy the warmer weather and have a great summer.
