Ronnie Park Neighborhood Stormwater
Residents of the Ronnie Park neighborhood on Jacqueline Drive, Sunset Drive, and Rollingview Drive were significantly impacted by Hurricane Ida in September of 2021. View the PowerPoint Presentation from the December 11, 2021 public meeting.
Willistown Township is working to develop long-and-short term plans to improve drainage in the area and avoid damage during future rain events. The Township has engaged Carroll Engineering Corporation to handle stormwater mitigation planning and implementation efforts. For several weeks in November 2022, Carroll Engineering will be in the neighborhood accessing and developing a short term plan for the plunge pool and existing stormwater sewers. We'd like to share the initial field work and action plan with you at an upcoming public meeting. Please join us for a general information session on Thursday, December, 1 at 7:00 pm in the Township meeting room located at 688 Sugartown Road or virtually via Zoom (pre-registration required). The meeting will be recorded and will be made available on this page for those who can not attend.
Carroll Engineering is also working on a long-term solution for stormwater mitigation efforts. The project will create a stormwater management system to collect and divert stormwater from homes subject to flooding. The Township has completed a Hazard Mitigation Grant Program application to the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Agency (PEMA ) to cover the funding. We will hold an additional meeting on Thursday, January 12, 2023 at 7:00 pm to go over the status of the project and tentative timeline. Please join us in person in the Township boardroom or virtually via Zoom. Once again, the meeting will be recorded on made available on this page for those who can not attend.
Lastly, we will continue to update this page with more information as the project progresses. Sign up on "Notify Me: Ronnie Park Stormwater Mitigation Updates" to receive an email when updates are made.
