October 2019 Council Meeting Agenda and Packet
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.
The Borough was awarded $30,000 for the Goddard Trail Relocation Project through Cumberland County’s Land Partnership Grant Program. Thank you to Cumberland County for the support on this great project that allows for greater accessibility in Siebert Park and a safer environment for walkers, bike riders and anyone traversing Siebert Park.
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.
