Township Street Signs
The Township of Upper St. Clair Public Works Department will begin the process of replacing the existing Street signs with the newly designed signs  the week of April 3, 2017. This will be an extended process while the department works through the system of streets. Crews will will begin on the north end of the Township (Wards 1 & 2, see attached map) and work south towards Ward 5 and hope to eventually complete the project in the year 2018.

In some locations the Street sign pole may need to be replaced or relocated, this process will involve a utility location One Call, these utilities are typically marked with paint and/or flags. The purpose of the utility locating is so the crews may bore the new pole location safely. Should you see these markings near Street sign locations you will know the reason.

During this project if you should have any questions please call the Public Works Department at 412-831-9000 x 217 or 271.

2015 - 2025 Comprehensive Plan
On November 2, 2015 by Resolution No. 1605 the Township completed the process of updating the community's comprehensive plan entitled Investing In Our Quality of Life. The plan reflects on the accomplishments of the past ten years and highlights the opportunities for advancement in the future. Additional information regarding the planning process and a copy of the plan may be found on the Township's Comprehensive Plan page.

2016 Parks and Recreation Plan
On May 2, 2016, by Resolution 1614, the Board of Commissioners adopted the 2016 Parks and Recreation Plan entitled Unparalleled Recreation. The development of this companion document to the Township of Upper St. Clair’s Comprehensive Plan represents feedback and participation of the Township Elected Officials, Township Staff, the Parks and Recreation Advisory Board, community organizations and the evaluation of survey responses from nearly 2,000 households in the community.  A copy of the plan can be found on the Township's Recreation and Leisure Services page. 

Morrow Road Bridge Replacement Project

The Pennsylvania Department of Transportation (PennDOT), through the P3 Rapid Bridge Replacement Project (RBRP), proposes to replace S.R. 3008, Section A01 (Morrow Road) bridge over McLaughlin Run on the existing alignment. The plan will include the replacement of the existing structure, guide rail updates, and drainage improvements. This project has been postponed until Summer of 2017 and will take approximately 8-weeks to complete. Please click on the below link to review the plans for the proposed bridge replacement project. A hard copy of the plans is also available in the lobby of the Township Administration building. Please call the Community Development Department at 412-831-9000 ext. 501 with any questions.

FALL/WINTER 2016

As we enter 2017, the Township looks forward to several projects moving forth including the grand opening of the Whole Foods in January with other businesses in Siena at St. Clair soon to follow. CVS Pharmacy will relocate to a new larger store at the corner of Route 19 and Ft. Couch Road. Other projects include PennDOT’s replacement of the Morrow Road Bridge later in 2017 and its continued study of the McLaughlin Run/Lesnett/McMillan Roads intersection with plans for future improvements and upgrades on the horizon. This year we will also see the onset of street signs replacement, which will improve visibility and readability and also incorporate the Township’s revised logo and theme maintaining a hint of the signs from the past.

While we are excited for new opportunities in the New Year, 2016 saw the formal adoption of the 2016 Parks & Recreation Plan component of the 2015-2025 Township Comprehensive Plan which is available for review here on the Township’s website. The Board of Commissioners adopted a budget that once again maintains the current tax rate while also refunding the 2008 Bonds resulting in additional long-term savings to the Township. Traffic calming measures were approved for Country Club Drive while McLaughlin Run Road was paved in its entirety from Bower Hill Road in Bridgeville to McMurray Road in Bethel Park. We were pleased with the addition of Dunkin’ Donuts and B.J.’s Brewhouse to the menu of choices for local eateries. The Estate Homes of Bedner Farms housing development plan continues to offer new housing options within the Township. The Township secured property on Hays Road through federal assistance to help impede possible flooding. Although one section of the Boyce Mayview Perimeter Trail remains to complete the approximate 5-mile loop, two segments of the Boyce Mayview Perimeter Trail were approved in 2016. Baker Park even received an update amidst all the other projects underway including the completion of the McMurray Road/Bethel Church Road intersection with new decorative mast arms, revised signal heads, improved ADA pedestrian crossing and new signage. This intersection represents the new “Township visual standard” for all intersections through the corridor.

 As always, we wish you and your family a safe and healthy new year!

Sincerely,

Matthew R. Serakowski
Township Manager
