Bushkill Township News
Snow plowing on all township roads begins after 2 inches of snow has fallen. If an accumulation of snow is in the forecast, be on the safe side and remove your cars from the street. Anytime snow plows are dispatched during a snowstorm, parking is prohibited on all township roads except in areas where no off-street parking is available. In those areas without off-street parking, all motor vehicles shall be parked on the even address side of the street on even numbered calendar days, and on the odd address side on odd numbered calendar days. Please do not park in cul-de-sacs during snowstorms. Any vehicles parked on the street during a snowstorm may be towed and fined. The Township’s snow removal procedure calls for snow emergency routes to be salted first. This is to ensure that all developments can be accessed by emergency vehicles (fire, police and ambulance). During heavier snowstorms, snow emergency roads will be completely cleared prior to equipment starting to plow secondary roads. Should you have a non-medical emergency during a snowstorm, please contact the Bushkill Township Police Department at 610.759.2200. For medical emergencies, please dial 911.

RESIDENTS: Please be advised that any installation within the Township road rights-of-way, including mailboxes and parked cars, are placed solely at the owner’s risk. Also, Bushkill Township does not repair or replace any mailboxes or posts damaged by snowplowing operations. Residents are reminded that snow being discharged from a plow truck can generate enough force to knock down unsecured posts and mailboxes. Any questions may be directed to the Township Manager at harr3271@bushkilltownship.com

We will once again have leaf collection in specified zones of the Township.For more information on the zones please click HERE

Bushkill Township is located in northcentral Northampton County. Until formation on August 13, 1813, the land area of Bushkill Township was part of its parent municipality, Plainfield Township. Before that time, the area of Bushkill Township was often referred to as "The Plains." On the north the Township is bordered by the Blue Mountain and Monroe County, with the Appalachian Trail running all along the summit of Blue Mountain. Plainfield Township and the Borough of Wind Gap border in the northeast, with Plainfield Township extending along the east to the Borough of Stockertown at the southeastern corner. The lengthy western border is with Moore Township, and the shorter southern border is with Upper Nazareth Township, just north of the Borough of Nazareth. The Township is approximately 25 square miles and has over 55 miles of municipal roadways.

Bushkill Creek, a High Quality-Cold Water Fishery, bisects the Township from the northwest to the southeast, and was once the source of power for numerous mills found within the Township and downstream. Sobers Run, an Exceptional



Value stream, is entirely within Bushkill Township and was an important source of water for farms and mills along its course to the Bushkill Creek. Both streams support native and wild reproducing trout populations, and both exhibit beautiful wooded greenways, which in recent years have become a focal point for land preservation within the Township. Many greenway areas now contain public trails and select properties have been opened for public fishing; all accomplished through the Township's Open Space Program and various funding partners.
