Fracking Presentation

In an effort to fully understand the possible impact of any future commercial natural gas development in or around Solebury, the Township retained geologist Jay Parrish and environmental planning expert Tom Daniels to evaluate the consequences of hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," and recommend any steps the Township might take to protect our natural resources.

In their public presentation at the Solebury Board of Supervisors meeting on Jan. 17, the experts presented their conclusion that the Township and its immediate surroundings are unlikely areas for gas exploration. They also offered a range of recommendations to address the remote possibility of future gas development.

You can download and review their presentation here, including their findings and recommendations.

EAC Offers Guidance for Growing / Managing Bamboo

Solebury Township has enacted a Bamboo Ordinance. Property owners and residents can now face fines and other penalties if they do not prevent any part of a pre-existing bamboo plant from spreading to an adjoining property or right-of-way, or from growing closer than 30 feet to the edge of a Township road or legal right-of-way, regardless of whether it is grown in the ground or a container.  Click here to view the Evironmental Advisory Committee's guidance for growing / managing bamboo.

Residential Burglary

A forced entry residential burglary occurred on Wednesday, Dec. 14, around 7 p.m. The residence is located in the Canal Walk neighborhood off of Route 32 near Route 202.
