Connecting the Past to the Present
Townships that link historical preservation with recreation and conservation initiatives are reaping the benefits. Find out how to turn ideas into action plans that result in a “win” for municipalities, residents, and visitors alike.
Turning Eyesores into Assets
Brownfields — former gas stations, dry cleaners, factories and more — dot the landscape in many communities. Redevelopment is possible, however, if townships know where to start and what help is available.
Preventing an Avian Epidemic
Bird flu has reached epidemic proportions in some parts of the U.S. and might be headed for the commonwealth. Townships can help by educating residents, including those who raise backyard flocks, on what to watch out for.
Testifying on Emergency Management
In recent legislative testimony, PSATS stressed that a rewrite of Pennsylvania’s Emergency Management Law must not try to fix parts of a system that are not broken or impose unfunded mandates on townships.
Speaking with a Unified Voice in the Courts
The PSATS Township Legal Defense Partnership has been supporting townships in appellate-level court cases for more than 20 years. Member participation is key to keeping this critical service going strong.
