TOWNSHIP ADMINISTRATION

FROM THE MANAGER/CONTROLLER

Meet Andy Brunette, Township Manager/Controller . . .

Andy is a graduate of Robert Morris University and the University of Phoenix and holds a Master’s

Degree in Business Administration. He and his wife, Lori, have been married 20 years and have

a son and daughter. Andy coaches the Hopewell High School Tennis and Bowling teams.

The 2013 calendar year presented many challenges for the Board of Commissioners, which was

faced with the dilemma of transforming the Township into a more cost-efficient operating entity

as well as trying to bring more corporate development into Hopewell. As the cost of doing business

continues to increase, it becomes more difficult to maintain the high quality level of service that the

residents of Hopewell demand and deserve. In 2013 all Township departments were assigned the

task to cut costs, work smarter, and be more efficient by putting together a three year budgetary

plan. The Board of Commissioners started the process of developing a comprehensive marketing

plan to attract and encourage development within Hopewell Township. Because of an entire team

effort of all Township employees, the Commissioners and Township management team were able to

maintain sewer rates as well as maintain the Township real estate tax rate at its current level of 14

mils. The Board of Commissioners and

management team will continue to strive to

utilize Township assets and personnel more

efficiently as well as utilize technology to

assist in becoming more efficient and cut

unnecessary spending.

The Administration’s goal for 2013 is to

aggressively pursue more cost cutting

measures in both the General and Sewer

Funds in an effort to make sure the Township

is operating as efficiently as possible. As part

of the marketing strategic plan, the Board of

Commissioners will continue to aggressively

pursue relationships with county, state and

federal officials for the future development of

Interstate 376, to improve and seek

businesses for our current riverfront and

Business Park, as well as to seek grants for

the continued development of our community

park. Hopewell is in the proper position to

achieve these visionary goals. The

advancement towards these goals will bring

economic security, stabilization and growth

for Hopewell. The future visionary

development will expand the tax base, which

will help stabilize tax rates and residential

sewer rates. These projects will also benefit

the area by increasing the job base in

Hopewell.

In 2013 residents can look forward to new

programs and advancements on the

Township website. Please be advised that if

residents would like to see something on our

website that the Township currently does not

offer, please email your requests to

adminmgr@hopewelltwp.com. Hopewell

residents are also reminded that they can

add, change, or remove phone numbers from

our 911 call message system by going to our

for ACH payments for payment of their sewage billing. ACH (Automated

Clearing House) allows payments to come out automatically from either your

checking or savings account. Residents are also reminded that they have the

ability to pay their sewer payments by credit or debit card at either

www.hopewelltwp.com or www.hopewellbill.com. Residents are reminded

that the Township offers a sewer assistance program for residents that qualify.

Information and applications can be picked up at the municipal building or

In 2013 Hopewell Township plans to invest $300,000 in Township Roads,

as well as a $350,000 investment into the construction of the upgrade of the

Sharon Grange Road pump station. Both projects will be completely financed

through existing Township Funds. The Township will start the process of the

development of a G.P.S. (Global Positioning Satellite) to assist in the location

of sewer and general infrastructure within the Township. The G.P.S. system

will be a tremendous asset in order for the Township to better utilize its assets,

as well as to help the workers to be more efficient. The G.P.S. system is on

schedule to be operational in 2014. The Township was approved for a

Interceptors. Hopewell Township’s Public

Works Department will receive a 2013 Ford

Township residents in 2013 will be able to

continue to put their grass clippings in bags

for curbside collection with their normally

scheduled garbage collection by Waste

Management on Mondays at no additional

cost to the residents. The Township

Administration office in 2013 will continue the

photo ID system for the residents wishing to

use the Township Depository. All residents

who wish to use the Depository will be

required to have a photo ID, which requires

an annual fee of $20.00. Residents who are

65 years of age or older are exempt from the

annual fee, but are still required to have a

photo ID in order to enter the Depository. The

Administration office in 2013 will be working

on a new call complaint system where

residents will be able to log in complaints via

the Township website, receive a confirmation

of receipt, and email confirmation when the

complaint has been satisfied. The Township

believes this system will help us be more

efficient in responding to and tracking

residential complaints.

Please remember, if you notice a street light

that is burned out or blinking, please report

the pole number or the street address that is

closest to the pole, to the Township at

(724)-378-1460, ext. 100. Please be

reminded that the Township pays Duquesne

Light for the street lights regardless if the light

is working or not. Therefore, the Township

appreciates your support in reporting any

inoperable street lights when you see them.

Please also note that Hopewell Township has

a solicitor ordinance for solicitation within the

Township. Any salesperson who comes to

your door must have photo ID permit badge

issued by the Township. Solicitors are not

allowed to be in the Township after 5pm and

never on Sundays. If a salesperson comes to

your door and does not have an ID badge, is

there after 5pm, or on Sundays please call the

Hopewell Township Police Department by

dialing 911.

Lastly, the Township is always looking for

volunteers for various Boards, recreation and

community activities it holds throughout the

year. If you would like to get involved, please

contact the office or stop by the Municipal

building for more information.

BUILDING & DEVELOPMENT REPORT

It is great to report that the rezoning of a parcel of land by the Township Commissioners in 2003 on Sohn

Road has resulted in the construction of 100 new single family homes. The “Sweet Brier” Plan was

developed by Maronda Homes, Imperial, PA. There are some great views overlooking the Ohio River and

the final few homes are almost complete. Next, the Township is looking forward to the construction of

another Maronda Homes subdivision of new homes. The proposed “Clairmont Manor” Plan will also result

in 100 new housing units. The Plan is located on Brodhead Road off Tee Line Drive. A second access

will be from a new street, aka, “Casey Drive” via Creese Street at Five Points. The successful completion

of this plan will insure a steady influx of new housing starts for the Township. Final planning and approvals

have not been finalized at this time but hopefully 2013 will conclude the agreements to allow this plan to

get underway.

Equally exciting is the continuing construction of the Patio Homes at the Village at Beaver Lakes. Minton

& Sons are continuing constructing eight, four unit homes resulting in thirty-two (32) units. This housing

is very upscale design and for some, a dream comes true to be living along the gorgeous Shadow Lakes

Golf Club.

Looking throughout the rest of the Township, new home construction continues at a much smaller scale

due to the availability of building lots, however, new housing starts do occur at various locations. Bachman

Builder’s have lots available at Valleyview Avenue off Kane Road for new home construction.

Likewise, the Township has realized the completion of the construction of the forty (40) unit “Westfield

Towers” building designed strictly for area senior citizens age sixty-two (62) or older. This plan was

awarded federal funding obtained through the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development. The

creation of this new affordable housing will be a welcome addition to our existing housing stock. The building

is located on Westfield Drive near the Hopewell Exit of Rt. 376.

Consequently, the Township’s is fortunate to have a variety of housing types in today’s real estate market. The existing inventory of

homes are being maintained, upgraded and holding their values, while the addition of new and different types of housing will insure a

diverse mix of stock, to uphold values in the future. Further in this report, you will see the importance of zoning regulations in effect to

this end.

Moreover, the purpose of the following ordinances found in this report are to promote, protect and facilitate the public health, safety,

general welfare and practical community development in order to accommodate reasonable overall community growth and to prevent

blighting conditions and hazards These are the basic provisions of Community Development Objectives on which these Ordinances

are based.

In the way of Non-Residential Building, 2012 had many highlights that are noteworthy. The Beaver County Corporation for Economic

Development proceeded with grading for additional site development at the Hopewell Industrial Park while Service Link continued

interior renovations for tenant space improvements. Also, American Precision Powder Coating renovated & opened at the Airport Road

Industrial Park. At our Shopping Centers, Roses Express, variety wholesalers, Forever Pittsburgh Sports Memorabilia and Aimee’s

Floral & More opened at the Hopewell Shopping Center. At the Green Garden Plaza, The Palms Brazilian Steakhouse, a 6800 sq. ft.

restaurant, suited for banquets & weddings, now provides a unique dining experience. The Hopewell Deli & More changed and

expanded and continues at the Crestmont Center. Further, the latest service provider would be Skyline Chiropractic, owned by Ronald

Zorn, which opened at 2253 Brodhead Road. Skyline provides complete chiropractic services. These projects add to the overall

assessment value of the Township’s total worth and will provide a foundation for other businesses to locate, renovate or expand,

providing for future growth.

The Hopewell Township Emergency Operations Plan (EOP) is an all hazards plan consisting of a basic plan and position specific Standard Operating

Procedures (SOPs). Contained within many of the SOPs are “Nuclear Power Plant Incident Response Actions”.

The Hopewell Township EOP employs a multi-agency operational structure that uses the Incident Management System based upon the National

Incident Management System (NIMS).

The purpose of the EOP is to provide for the protection of persons and property in Hopewell Township in the event of a natural or man-caused

emergency or disaster, in accordance with the Pennsylvania Emergency Management Services Code, 35 Pa. C.S., Sections 7101-7707, also referenced

as P.L. 1332.

The EOP establishes procedures to alert the public and provide information and appropriate protective action instructions, if necessary. Also, the

Plan provides for coordination and use of available Township resources during an emergency.

The EOP defines the role and responsibilities of Township Officials and the Emergency Management Coordinator(s). The response plan defines

emergency functions and makes assignments to Township and volunteer staff.

The response plan is designed to assure coordination and cooperation with County efforts in accordance with the Beaver County Emergency

Operations Plan.

The hazards that pose the potential threats to Hopewell Township are: flooding, hazardous materials accidents, storms, tornadoes, dam failure,

droughts, nuclear power plant accidents and nuclear attacks.

The Emergency Operations Plan covers a wide range of possibilities from slowly developing emergencies to disasters without warning. It is intended

to cover disasters resulting from any hazards whether of great magnitude or localized in their impact.

The Board of Commissioners is responsible for the protection and safety of the public in Hopewell Township and will exercise direction and control

of its Emergency Management Agency and response activities within the Township.

HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP COMMUNITY PARK RECIEVES $87,000 GRANT

FROM THE PENNSYLVANIA DEPARTMENT OF CONSERVATION AND

NATURAL RESOURCESFOR CONSTRUCTION OF ADDITIONAL FACILITIES

Hopewell Township, situated in Beaver County, is a First Class

Township with a population of 13,254 residents. Hopewell

Township encompasses a land area of 17.2 square miles and

borders the northwestern tip of Allegheny County. Hopewell

Township has approximately 5,446 residential homes, as well as

many business/commercial establishments and light industrial

establishments. Over the years, the community has continued to

grow and the Hopewell Township Board of Commissioners

recognizes that with community growth comes an increased

demand for recreational facilities and activities. Parks and

recreation play a critical role in providing a high quality of life to

residents within the community. Recreational assets attract

business and encourage residential growth. In addition, as the

park continues to grow and acquire additional property, a

permanent green area within the community will be preserved for

wildlife and conservation.

Hopewell Township has an outstanding community park,

known as the Hopewell Township Community Park. The park

encompasses 62 acres of primarily undeveloped woodlands,

fields, and wetlands. Purchased in 1967, all recreation for the

community is centralized at this site and is coordinated through

the efforts of the Hopewell Township Park Board and Recreation

Director. Some activities planned for 2013 include Winter Fest;

Easter Egg Hunt; Youth Fishing Derby; Adult Fishing Derby;

Rec-on-the-Run summer program for children; Camp Lakewood;

Concerts in the Park; Movies in the Park; Park Fest; Barbecue

Cook-Off and Blues Fest; Labor Day Car Cruise; Fall Fest; and

the Visit with Santa. Hopewell Township also works with its

Planning Commission, Beaver County, and the Hopewell Area

School District to share facilities and programming ideas.

In an effort to continue with improvements and growth of the

Hopewell Township Community Park, Hopewell Township

acquired an additional 17.5 acres of undeveloped land adjacent

to the existing park. The newly acquired property is well suited for

the proposed improvements, which include a pavilion, sport court,

toddler play area, swings, and parking lot.

Hopewell Township has been awarded an $87,000 grant from

the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural

Resources (DCNR) in support of proposed improvements at the

Hopewell Township Community Park. The proposed

improvements are consistent with existing facilities present on the

adjacent Hopewell Community Park property. Portions of the

newly-acquired property have steep slopes that do not make

those areas suitable for development. The portion of the

newly-acquired property located between Laird Drive and the

stream is suitable for development, as is the upper portion of the

property (future). The steep slope areas are entirely suitable for

tree growth and nature watching.

The Hopewell Township officials work closely with the Parks

and Recreation Board who operate and maintain park facilities

and schedule recreational programming for area residents. The

facilities and programs are open to both residents and visitors.

The park expansion will follow similar protocol as the existing

Hopewell Community Park, in which the natural terrain and

wooded canopy are maintained to enhance wildlife and

encourage nature watching. Minimal tree removal will occur for

this project, including some brush, saplings, and lesser quality

trees that are growing along the road bank, to provide room for

grading and development. Trees and vegetation along the steep

slope areas will not be disturbed.

HOPEWELL TOWNSHIP VOLUNTEER FIRE DEPARTMENT

The Members of the Department are always training,

accumulating about 200 hours yearly per person. This entails

outside trainings through county and state agencies as well as in

house training. There are 30 active members, 9 Life members

and 6 Administrative members currently on the roster. The Life

members have always been the back bone of the Department

and are some of the original founding members. We are always

taking on new members that are willing to give their time to help

and serve their neighbor and fellow man. We provide training,

schooling and the ability to meet new people and make new friends along with the self satisfaction one will gain. We do all of

this without one cent of pay! Watch for our 2014 calendars that will be available this summer!

The next time you get a glass of water from your faucet, think about this. Most of our

drinking water comes from our rivers.

When the rain falls and the snow melts, the water runs of our roofs and yards, down into our streets and

roads. Anything in the path of this storm water goes straight down our storm drains. And right into our rivers.

Trash. Paint. Oil. Fertilizers. Animal waste. All of it is flushed into the same rivers we get our drinking water

from.

But there are solutions. Dedicated people and municipalities are working on it right now. And you can

help.

Properly dispose of harmful chemicals, paints and motor oils instead of pouring them

down storm drains. Replace chemical fertilizers with organic ones and use them

sparingly to reduce harmful runoff. Don’t put animal waste into storm drains.

For more information, contact your municipality or visit our website. And tap into

ways you can help.

Concept of Operations

• In a disaster emergency, the Township government will continue only

those functions and services necessary to protect life and property.

• Emphasis will be to meet basic human needs such as food, shelter and

medical care and to resume basic services such as water, electricity

and sanitation, as soon as possible.

• The Emergency Management Coordinator will mobilize the Emergency

Operations Center (EOC) at the Hopewell Township Municipal

Building, 1700 Clark Blvd., Hopewell Township, PA when and

emergency situation requires it.

• The Emergency Management Organization Staff will follow prescribed

standard operating procedures (SOPs) which describe in detail how

their functions are carried out and utilize checklists as necessary.

• Any decision to implement protective actions will be made by Township

ENGINEERING

WATER POLLUTION CONTROL DEPARTMENT

The Hopewell Township Water Pollution Control Department

operates two (2) wastewater treatment facilities, nine (9)

wastewater pumping stations, and the wastewater collection

system within Hopewell Township. The Raccoon Creek

Wastewater Treatment Facility is located on Pollack Lane and is

designed to treat an average daily wastewater flow of 2,500,000

gallons per day and a maximum daily wastewater flow of

12,000,000 gallons per day. The Raccoon Creek Wastewater

Treatment Facility serves approximately 3,678 homes and

businesses within Hopewell Township. The Wickham Village

Wastewater Treatment Facility is located off Diamond Street and

is designed to treat an average daily wastewater flow of 120,000

gallons per day and a maximum daily wastewater flow of

1,000,000 gallons per day. The Wickham Village Wastewater

Treatment Facility serves approximately 290 homes within

Hopewell Township.

Hopewell Township, like many neighboring municipalities, is

taking steps to improve the wastewater collection and treatment

system through improved operation and maintenance.

Accordingly, Hopewell Township has developed Sewer System

Rules and Regulations that set forth requirements for connection

to the sanitary sewer system and discharge requirements.

1. A primary focus of Hopewell Township’s efforts is the

removal of surface water and subsurface water from the

wastewater collection system. The discharge of storm

water, surface water, and subsurface water or the connection

of downspouts, roof drains, surface drains, areaway drains,

foundation drains, interior french drains, stairwell drains,

and/or sump pump discharges into a sanitary sewer lateral is

absolutely prohibited by our existing legislation. Entrance of

this excess flow into our sewer system causes the capacity of

the sewer lines, pump stations, and wastewater treatment

facilities to be exceeded, thereby causing untreated sewage to

Hopewell Township has been designated as an MS4 Community

by the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection.

MS4 stands for SMALL MUNICIPAL SEPARATE STORM SEWER

SYSTEMS. As part of this designation, Hopewell Township is

responsible to:

1. Provide Public Education regarding the direct connection

between the storm sewer system and the Ohio River, Raccoon

Creek, and Flaugherty Run.

2. Solicit Public Participation to “getting the word out” about the

benefits of protecting of the watersheds within Hopewell

Township.

3. Conduct regular inspections of each storm sewer discharge

to identify, report, and correct any inappropriate release of

materials into Waters of the Commonwealth.

4. Reinforce existing procedures to address erosion and

sedimentation control during construction projects.

overflow from the system and discharge into nearby streams

and waterways, thereby adversely affecting our environment.

2. Oil and grease are not permitted to be discharged into the

sanitary sewer system. Oil and grease solidifies within the

sewer system and can cause sewer system obstructions and

the backup of sewage into homes. Oil and grease should be

properly disposed of by homeowners and businesses.

Commercial establishments that engage in the preparation of

food must install appropriate oil and grease separators.

3. Any alteration or replacement of a sanitary sewer lateral

requires the issuance of a Restoration Permit by

Hopewell Township. Hopewell Township has established

specifications regarding construction of sanitary sewer

laterals. These specifications and Standard Drawings are

available on the Hopewell Township web site at

www.hopewelltwp.com. Any alteration or replacement of a sanitary

sewer lateral must be inspected by Hopewell Township.

4. A Certificate of Compliance is required to be obtained

from the Hopewell Township Sewer Department prior to

the sale or transfer of improved and sewered real

property. The purpose of a Certificate of Compliance is to

verify conformity with Hopewell Township regulations

regarding the exclusion of surface water and subsurface water

from the sanitary sewer system. Applications are available on

the Hopewell Township web site at www.hopewelltwp.com.

After payment of the required fee, Hopewell Township

personnel will conduct a dye test of all roof drains,

downspouts, parking area drains, driveway drains, area

drains, interior/exterior sumps, and any other potential

sources of surface water or subsurface water. If the property

passes the dye test, a Certificate of Compliance is issued and

is valid for a period of five (5) years from the date of issuance.

5. Reinforce existing ordinances to provide for construction

and maintenance of storm water facilities, such as ponds and

basins, that provide post–construction storm water

management.

6. Establish pollution prevention and good housekeeping

measures for municipal vehicles and equipment.

Hopewell Township is completing its inspection and reporting

activities for the 2010/2011 reporting period. Residents are

reminded that the storm sewer system works wonderfully for both

storm water and for any inappropriate item that enters the storm

sewer system. Every gum wrapper, pop can, and drop of spilled

motor oil that enters the storm sewer system is efficiently delivered

to our rivers and streams. Hopewell Township is asking each

resident to review their daily activities and to be cognizant of any

inappropriate discharges. We should all strive to insure that the

source of our drinking water be kept as clean as possible, free of

fertilizers, pet wastes, oils, and cleaning chemicals.

SCHOOL WILL BE OUT SOON! Speed Limits are 5-20 MPH

IN RESIDENTIAL NEIGHBORHOODS. SLOW DOWN AND

PLEASE OBEY STOP SIGNS! Keep Hopewell Safe!

The crest is to serve as a visual representation of the Township. Each quarter of

the shield depicts different components that make the township a whole.

The first panel represents the government. The sword represents the police and

the protection and execution of the laws they protect. The pen represents the Board

of Commissioners and government employees who serve and create the laws. The

key is a symbol of the keeping and protection of the laws that govern the Township.

The second panel represents progress and growth, for which the township strives.

The crossed shovel and hammer, along with the gear cog and carpenter’s square,

represent the hard work ethic that Township employees maintain.

The third panel depicts the strong sense of community embodied by residents and

neighborhoods. The outline of Hopewell depicts the entirety of the Township’s land.

The map is wreathed by depictions of the many houses that people call home. The

largest public service provided by the Township is the park, which is represented by

the trees and trail. Finally, the shaking hands are

a symbol of the friendship and helping hands

which are never in short supply.

The final panel is representative of education. The lamp on a stack of books symbolizes the quality

education provided by our schools and teachers. The three red stars represent past, present and the

future of education so that the flame of learning has burned, is burning and will always burn strong.

The other elements incorporated in the crest are the Viking helmet, representative of the school’s

mascot, the scroll bearing the date of 1812, symbolizing the year of the Township’s inception, two

Hemlock branches, the official state tree, flanking the shield and the keystone at the bottom

represent our membership to the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.

TAX OFFICE

The Property Tax Office has moved to the former Zoning Office at the Municipal Building, which
