Bridge closing

Starting Monday October 17th and ending Friday October 21st the Covered Bridge on Keeley Avenue in New Britain Borough will be closed for bridge repairs.  We expect this closure to cause issues for traffic flow in and around Chalfont Borough.  Additionally, construction of storm water facilities at Park Avenue and N. Main Street continues daily from 9 am to 3 pm.  Please take an alternate route if possible.  If that isn’t possible, please allow extra time while traveling through the Borough.


It is Scarecrow time again!!

All groups, families, scouts, and individuals are encouraged to build a scarecrow. We will provide frames, bags for heads, and straw for stuffing—you provide the creativity. Pick up your supplies at Borough Hall October 8th-9th and return your finished scarecrow any time on October 15th-16th. Our Public Works Department will install the scarecrows on the street light poles on main Street and Butler Avenue in time for Halloween.

Place your order for frames and heads by email to mbeckr@verizon.net or call 215-822-3857. If you have any questions, please call the Borough Office at 215-822-7295.
