Snow Routes in Effect – 2/18/21

If your vehicle is parked along a snow route, it must be moved by 9 a.m. on February 18th. This will enable the Borough’s snow plows to clear the snow from the street without obstruction.

NOTE: Those vehicles not moved will be ticketed and could be towed.

Please remember: following the winter storm, residents and businesses are required to clear the sidewalks on their property within 24 hours of the end of the storm. Sidewalks are to be fully cleared to provide a minimum of 36 inches of clear pathway. Also, snow removed from sidewalks and driveways in not permitted to be put in Borough roadways.

Trash and Recycling: 
Recycling collection will be postponed until Friday, February 19th.
Trash and bulk item collection will be postponed until Saturday, February 20th.

Stay safe, Narberth!

Snow Routes in Effect until 4pm on February 3, 2021

Snow routes are still in effect until 4pm today, Wednesday, February 3rd.

Vehicles should be moved as soon as possible from these routes to allow the Narberth Public Works Department to continue to clear roadways and storm inlets. Parking violations will be issued to vehicles  parked along the snow route until 4pm.

Public Works has cleared Haverford Avenue in the Downtown District and the Upper Municipal lot for parking.

Public Works will continue to clear roadways and storm inlets tomorrow as we prepare for rain on Friday and a possibility of more snow on Sunday, February 7th.

Thank you for your patience.

Montgomery County has opened COVID-19 vaccination pre-registration for people who are 65 years or older or those who have pre-existing conditions as specified by the CDC under the Phase 1B and 1C categories only.

Wheels on Windsor

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
NOVEMBER 6, 2020

NARBERTH BOROUGH  

“Wheels on Windsor” Pilot Coming to Narberth Pilot will feature temporary protected bikeway along Windsor Avenue  

(Narberth, PA) —  Narberth Borough is partnering with Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission and Narberth Cycling Club to bring a 10-day protected bikeway pilot to Narberth. It will demonstrate features of “complete streets” design (i.e. streets that accommodate all users and improve mobility).   

Starting November 20th, Narberth residents and visitors will experience and observe temporary roadway improvements along Windsor Avenue, spanning two blocks from Forrest Avenue to Grayling Avenue.   

The pilot will include installation of a two-way protected bikeway along the north curb of Windsor Avenue, temporary removal of the left-turn lane at Narberth Avenue, and enhanced signage and pavement markings to alert drivers to yield to people walking and biking at intersections.   

The demonstration will provide an opportunity to: 
(1) test ideas with minimal cost and minimal use of Borough resources  (2) collect data related to travel speeds, vehicle counts, and bicycle counts (3) gather community feedback   

The pilot is the first step toward implementation of Narberth’s Comprehensive Plan bicycle network goals, and builds on the success of the annual NarbEarth Day protected bikeway demonstration.   

The outcomes of the pilot will help guide priorities and areas of focus for future pilots throughout Narberth. The pilot will also aid in future planning of permanent roadway improvements to reduce speeding, increase comfort, and enhance safety for all who live, work, and play in Narberth.  

All are invited to experience the Wheels on Windsor pilot and complete the user survey starting at 5 p.m. on Friday, November 20, and available until 8 a.m. on Monday, November 30.    For more information regarding Wheels on Windsor and full project background, visit the project page (www.narberthpa.gov/bike-lanes) on Narberth Borough’s website or email info@narberthpa.gov

Proposed Ordinances

An ordinance is an amendment, deletion, and/or an addition to the body of laws that are in effect in the Borough of Narberth. Borough Council approves ordinances by majority vote and they are enacted with the approving signature of the Mayor. The Mayor has the option to veto any ordinance at which time a super-majority (5 out of 7) members of Council would have to vote to approve the ordinance for it to be enacted at the next meeting.

The record of adopted ordinances incrementally changes the overall body of laws in effect in Narberth. Codification is the process where the ordinances are indexed and inserted into the body of laws – in their right place with appropriate additions and deletions.
