WCP Construction Work

Sections of Warminster Community Park to be Closed During Grant Construction

Effective Immediately, sections of Warminster Community Park will be closed to the public during grant project construction. These closures will extend through the spring months but Meco Constructors, Inc. will do their best to complete phases of the project and reopen areas as they are completed.  We recognize that this will cause some disruption to regular park visitors and hope that you will bear with us throughout the process.  This large multi-grant project will greatly expand the public amenities in WCP and we are trying to confine all work to the winter/spring months when there is less activity in the park.  We hope the entire project will be completed by June 2021.

The parking lot, pond trail, perimeter trail, Hallowell pavilion, and playground will remain open to the public.  Access to the dog park will be via grass instead of a paved trail.  Trees along the crossover trail are being relocated to other areas of the park or into the new parking areas.

The basketball courts, Safety Town, much of the runway, and the interior trails will be blocked or closed.  Heavy equipment will be bringing in dirt for the sport fields and moving dirt for stormwater, sections of runway will be removed for greening and landscaping.  Other sections of the runway will be milled and paved for centralized parking lots, additional basketball courts and access roads.  Cyclists will need to use the perimeter trail to gain access to the Bristol Road exit when sections of the runway are closed.

The safety of our park visitors is important.  Please be sure to follow signs and observe closed areas so that we do not have to shut down the entire park during construction.  If you have questions, please contact the Township Parks & Recreation Department: 215-443-5428 or recreation@warminsterpa.org.

Press Release

December 23, 2020

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Warminster Township Supervisors Adopt $42.6M Township Budget with NO Tax Increase

At their regular meeting of December 22, 2020, the Board of Supervisors adopted the 2021 Township Budget with no tax increases. “The 2021 budget is an excellent first step in cleaning up years of financial mismanagement and it is balanced with NO TAX INCREASE.”, said Supervisors’ Chairman Ken Hayes.

According to the Chairman, the Township’s financial issues are directly related to past administrations failure to pay the full annual bill for the Township’s Police Pension Plan creating a huge $17M unfunded liability and inflating the annual pension Minimum Municipal Obligation. “I think what we are most pleased with in the 2021 Budget is we are finally fully funding the Police Pension Plan in 2021,” said Hayes.

The highlights of the 2021 Budget include $3Million for the Milling and Paving Program, $5.1Million for the infrastructure improvements and additional recreational features to the Warminster Community Park, and $3.2Million for the acquisition, building demolition and restoration of Shenandoah Woods. “This Board is finally investing in Warminster Township and giving taxpayers improvements to benefit them directly,” said Hayes.

“We still have a lot of work to do to get years of deficit spending under control, but this is a positive first step in the right direction to financial stability,” Hayes concluded.
