Proposals for West Ambler Community Planning Sought

by Diane Cardano-Casacio & Her Team

The Township is accepting proposals until February 20 for community planning and engineering services for West Ambler. 

The selected consulting firm will be expected to develop a plan of action for West Ambler. That plan will include short-term mitigation and long-term storm water improvements. The West Ambler neighborhood is prone to flooding and was hit particularly hard during Tropical Storm Lee in September.

The work will also address the Township’s 17-acre portion of the BoRit Superfund site. The firm will facilitate community involvement in the development of reutilization options, if any, and funding sources for the land.

The Township also plans to form the West Ambler Development Committee that will work to improve the quality of life in the neighborhood.
 
The committee will focus on addressing storm water issues and neighborhood and brownfield revitalization. The committee is expected to be formed by spring. It will include community members, elected officials and engineering and design consultants.
 
The committee will explore public-private partnership opportunities for revitalizing the neighborhood. The Township has already been awarded $250,000 from the state Department of Community and Economic Development for streetscape and sidewalk improvements on West Maple Avenue.
 
The Township is also working with Temple University's Center for Sustainable Communities, Upper Dublin Township, Ambler Borough and other government agencies on a plan to address the flooding in the neighborhood.
