In an effort to continue ridding Falls Township Community Park of Canada geese and their droppings, the Falls Township Board of Supervisors approved a multi-faceted, year-long plan.

When Deena Fischer was looking for a preschool for her then 2-year-old daughter Morgan, the working mom of three couldn’t find a preschool to suit her needs. So, she built one. “I didn’t like what I was seeing,” she said. “If I’m going to send them to school, I want them to learn something.”
In light of the keen interest in the Elcon project, the Township feels it is appropriate to notify the public that Elcon submitted a land development proposal on Friday, January 25, 2019. Township staff and professionals have begun a review of the proposal. At this time, there are no set dates for when this proposal will be reviewed by the necessary boards and commissions. All such meetings will be public. Also, dates will be announced in advance.
