If awarded, grant money could be utilized to improve storm water control measures, replace sidewalks, pave roads and address blighted properties within Claridge. We are asking residents to kindly submit their survey to us as soon as possible!
Penn Township is one of approximately 670 small urban communities within the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania required to have its municipal separate storm sewer system (MS4) regulated under the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection’s (PADEP’s) National Pollution Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Phase II permit program for storm water discharges from storm sewer systems within small-to medium-sized communities within urbanized areas as defined by the 2000 U.S. Census.

The April 1, 2020 census is right around the corner! Households will receive a Census Post Card in the mail to complete the 2020 Census. Once you receive it, you can respond online. In May, the U.S. Census Bureau will begin following up in person with any households that haven’t responded to the census. In 2020, for the first time ever, the U.S. Census Bureau will accept responses online, but you can still respond by phone or mail if you prefer. Responding should take less time than it takes to finish your morning coffee. Responding to the census is not only your civic duty; it also affects the amount of funding your community receives, how your community plans for the future, and your representation in government. Learn more about the upcoming census by visiting our 2020 Census page or visit the 2020 Census website directly for full details.
