Openings on the Recreation Commission

The Recreation Commission has openings for new members. This volunteer position is a way that you can give back to the community where you live and help make decisions about programs and projects supported by the Recreation Commission. We meet four times per year for about an hour and provide recommendations to Borough Council about programs and projects our residents want.

There are three openings on the Recreation Commission for the term 2020-2022. If this is something you would be interested in, please send a cover letter and resume to the Recreation Office by December 1, 2019.

Paving on Goddard Trail

The new portion of the Goddard Trail within Siebert Park is coming together. Paving has started, and it is getting closer to being ready for our residents and visitors to start using.

Basketball Hoops and Nets in Streets

Camp Hill Borough is seeking assistance from residents with removing basketball hoops and other nets left in Borough streets. Street cleaning, leaf collection, and snow plowing are just around the corner. When Public Works is plowing the streets or when they are running the street sweeper, it is very difficult to maneuver their vehicles around hoops and nets left out past the curb. We have even had some damaged equipment and near misses with injury of Borough employees in the past. The streets must also be kept clear for emergency vehicles to pass by or park.

Starting November 1, 2019, the Code Enforcement Division will enforce the removal of the nets and hoop sets from the street. We are asking for everyone to move their hoop sets and nets out of the street and as far back as they can, and to extend them as high as they can so trucks may pass by when working. Also, hoop sets must be secure and not easily blown over. Basketball hoop sets are not to be permanently mounted within the Borough right of way.

We thank all of you in advance for your cooperation with this matter.

Work is Underway on Goddard Trail

Ground was broken this week on the new section of the Goddard Trail within Siebert Park. Work crews are creating a new path for walkers and bikers. The new path will be off the road and separate from vehicles, so the trail will be safer for all.
