Open Space Referendum
This November, Lower Moreland Township voters will be asked if preserving open space is worth a one quarter of a one percent increase in their Earned Income Tax. With the Township unable to fund the purchase of open space, the Board of Commissioners is posing this ballot question to tax payers to see if the general public has interest. The ballot question will read:
"Do you favor the imposition of an additional Earned Income Tax at the rate of .250% by Lower Moreland Township to be used for financing the acquisition of open space, recreation, park and/or historical lands; for the purpose of developing, improving, designing and maintaining such open space land?"
County Line Road PennDOT Lane Changes
In an effort to calm traffic speeds and enhance safety, PennDOT is currently in the process of modifying the traffic pattern on County Line Road between Buck Road and Bustleton Avenue. County Line Road will be reduced from four travel lanes to two travel lanes with a center turning lane.
Lower Moreland Township was informed of the new lane configuration only after the the paving project was underway. It was not a party to any prior discussion with PennDOT on that decision. After learning of the decision a few weeks back, our traffic engineers made recommendations for timing the lights and shared other concerns with PennDOT regarding turn lanes. To our knowledge, none of the recommendations have been incorporated to date and should have been done prior to, or in conjunction with, any painting of new travel lanes. Our police are working to mitigate some of the problems with the new lanes and we have made contact with PennDOT for the remaining work.
