I am extremely excited to serve the residents of Narberth Borough and advance the goals of Borough Council as the new Borough Manager of Narberth Borough starting May 24th. I have lived in the Pennsylvania area for about a decade, beginning with graduate school at the University of Pennsylvania, and most recently having served as Borough Manager for New Britain Borough. I moved to the Pennsylvania area after growing up in South Carolina (where my family still resides) and completing a year of community service in AmeriCorps, which took me all around the United States. I greatly look forward to meeting and interacting with the residents and business owners of the Borough as well as participating in meetings and community events. When not doing Narberth related activities, I look forward to spending time on the Cynwyd Heritage Trail (near where I’ll be living in Bala Cynwyd), finding and taking care of a cat, and enjoying the wonderful amenities this area has to offer.
The Narberth Planning Commission has scheduled a special meeting for April 14 at 7 p.m. This will be a continuation of the April 6 meeting to discuss the recommendation of a preservation ordinance to Council.

Narberth’s 2021 Spring Cleanup Week will be held from June 7th through June 11th!
Please put out your items the night before your scheduled route for collection and review the list of restrictions below. Questions can be emailed to email@example.com.
Regular trash routes will remain the same during this week.
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 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.

The kits are free to small businesses and will include:
• face masks

CARES Act funding received by Montgomery County financed the kits.
Narberth has obtained a number of these kits for businesses within our Borough and will be distributing them on Friday, January 29th, February 5th and February 12, 2021 between the hours of 9:00am – 12:00pm. Each business can get up to 4 kits. To pick up your box of PPE, come to the parking lot next to Borough Hall during the above hours. You will give the name of the business, how many employees you have and how many boxes you need. Boxes will be distributed during these hours or until supplies run out, whichever comes first.
If you have any questions, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or call 610-664-2840.
Stay safe everyone!
We know the most pressing thing on many people’s minds is the COVID-19 Vaccine. As the Borough of Narberth, we are not in control of any vaccine scheduling or distribution, but we can provide you with as much information as we have regarding timelines, phases, and more. 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. For more information on how pre-registration works, including information for businesses, as well as the difference between phases, visit Montgomery County’s COVID-19 webpage at https://www.montcopa.org/3660/COVID-19-Vaccine.

“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 email@example.com.
