New Updated Map and Community Guide
Municipal Publications is once again working with Penn Township on an update to the Penn Township Map and Community Guide. It has been nearly 4 years since our last guide and we are looking forward to providing the community with a colorful new publication.
This project is being offered again as a public service to all the residents and businesses of Penn Township, as well as families and businesses looking to relocate here. This full-color publication will include a description of the services and activities provided by the Township, local attractions, business advertisements, and other information that we believe people will find interesting and informative, along with a detailed street map of Penn Township.
We will be printing 9,000 of these, and a copy will be distributed to every household via the Penn Franklin News, with extra copies available at the Penn Township municipal building. Sponsorship of an advertisement to be placed around the border of the map will be greatly appreciated, as this allows us to publish the guide at no cost to our taxpayers.
This map/guide will be used for a period of at least two years before another update is done, as this is not an annual project. Each advertiser will also receive a laminated copy of the publication for display. If you have any questions about this project, or would like to participate with an advertisement, please contact Beverly Miller here at the Township building, at 724-744-2171, x 203. I thank you for your participation in this project.
