Parking Survey

The Chalfont Borough Streets Committee wants your opinion on Ordinance 308A section 402 regarding parking between the hours of 1:00am and 6:00am on borough streets. Parking is currently restricted on all borough streets during those times. Please visit https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/cbparking to fill out the survey online. If you don’t have access to the internet, please call the Borough or stop by and we can collect your answers for you. Participation in this survey will allow your voice to be heard. There are only 4 questions so it should take less than 1 minute of your time. Thank you for your input regarding this matter!

Sidewalks need to be cleared

Residents please clear your sidewalks ASAP.  We understand this was a significant snow fall, that does not excuse us of our responsibility to clear sidewalks.  If you have a sidewalk in front of your home it is your responsibility to clear it within 12 hours of the final snowflake per ordinance 299-A.  This is a friendly reminder message, but if the sidewalks are not cleared enforcement will occur.  If you have questions about the Borough Code on sidewalks you can click here:  http://www.ecode360.com/27462471?highlight=sidewalks,sidewalk#27462471.   

Thank you for your help in keeping our community safe and walkable.
