Weekly Update – December 29, 2017
Tuesday, January 2, 2018 is East Allen’s Board of Supervisors re-organizational meeting.
This meeting is held at the beginning of each year to select their officers and reappoint the firms who will represent the township regarding engineering and legal matters. We at C.A.R.D believe that total transparency is the key to public trust and a greater participation by residents in local government.

Northampton Press Article Addressing Traffic
We want to thank the Northampton Press for their article on December 28, 2017 “Controlling township truck traffic.” We are very concerned for many of our rural roads, in particular Weaversville Road. The amount of over size tractor trailers that travel on this road will only increase with the development of more proposed warehouses. This along with speeding cars passing over a double yellow line make for an extremely dangerous situation. Thank you to East Allen Township’s Board of Supervisors Chairperson, Roger Unangst and the other Supervisors for agreeing to help us address this issue to Hanover Twp (Lehigh), Allen Twp, Penn Dot & the State Police. We will keep you updated as we move forward. Please feel free to contact us with any concerns you may have regarding Weaversville Road and traffic. For more information, click here.
