Supervisors to Consider Alternative Energy and Stop Sign Ordinances

Jump to calendar

Alternative Energy Ordinance
An Alternative Energy Ordinance will be considered for enactment at the Board of Supervisors meeting on Monday, December 6th. The Bucks County Planning Commission (BCPC) developed this ordinance in consultation with the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection and the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission.

The intent of this ordinance is to incentivize land developments to include alternative energy systems and incorporate site design principals that are optimal for alternative energy sources, including solar, wind, and geothermal systems. The ordinance also includes reasonable conditions and restrictions to protect public health, safety, and welfare.

Langhorne Gables Stop Sign Ordinance
The Police Department and Citizens Traffic Commission (CTC) are recommending the addition of two (2) stop signs at the intersection of Parkview Avenue and Buttonwood Avenue in Langhorne Gables, which is currently a one-way stop on one of the Parkview Avenue approaches. The Police Department and CTC are advising the Board of Supervisors to turn this intersection into an all-way stop which must be done by amending the stop sign ordinance.

The same ordinance also includes a revision to memorialize other stop signs that are already in place in Langhorne Gables that have not been previously enabled by Township Ordinance.    The only new stop signs proposed with this ordinance will be at the intersection of Parkview Avenue and Buttonwood Avenue.
