Planning our Next Park: Public Visioning Meeting Jan 25, 630pm

Upper Saucon Township would like to know what residents would like to see in an upcoming park. The Township is looking to expand passive recreation and environmental education opportunities with the creation of two new Sustainable Community Parks. Using grant funding from the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR), we are in the process of preparing Master Site Development Plans for these sites, and we need your input! What do you think should happen with these parks? What do you want to see added? What should be preserved and protected for the future? What do you want to see changed? Come to our Public Visioning Meeting at the Southern Lehigh Public Library at 6:30 pm on January 25, 2017 and tell us all about it!

PennDOT’s Yellow Dot Program

This  program, backed by the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation, helps first responders locate vital medical information in case of emergency.

In 2013, the state’s transportation department released The Yellow Dot Program. It aims at helping emergency crews during car accidents. Inside the kit is a yellow dot decal, a pamphlet and an emergency information sheet.

The decal is affixed in the lower left corner of the rear windshield of a vehicle, which will alert first responders to check the glove compartment for the pamphlet, which contains vital information including medical conditions, emergency contacts and preferred hospitals.

For more information, including a participation form, please visit PennDOT’s website.
