Stormwater Management in Cheltenham
Plans for flood mitagation projects with the United States Army Corps of Engineers (ACOE) and the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP) have been in the discussion process for years. This past year, in accordance the Township's 5 Year Financial Plan , the Township commissioned a study to determine the feasibility of implementing a stormwater management fee to cover the expense of managing stormwater in the Township. The result is the Stormwater Management Program with a proposed three-tiered assessment fee. All property owners, regardless of tax status, would be subject to the fee. The fee will likely be adopted by the Board of Commissioners in the fall of 2021 and will appear on property owners' 2022 tax bills.
