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

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

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

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
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
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
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

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.

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

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, 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
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
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
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.

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.
The Property Tax Office has moved to the former Zoning Office at the Municipal Building, which
can be accessed by the rear entrance off the Police Department parking lot.
