Historical Architectural Review Board Volunteer Needed
Due to an upcoming vacancy in 2020, the Township is seeking a volunteer to serve on its combined Historic Commission/HARB. The group consists of seven or more members who are appointed to five-year terms by the Board of Supervisors. If you are a resident who owns a property on the official Historic Resource List in the Township, we would be especially interested in hearing from you.
The Commission meets on the 3rd Tuesday every other month (Jan-Mar-May-Jul-Sept-Nov) at 4:00 p.m. at the Guidance Office at the Great Valley Middle School.
If you are interested in the preservation and protection of the many historically significant structures located in Charlestown Township, please submit a letter of interest to Charlestown Township, P.O. Box 507, Devault, PA 19432 or email email@example.com.

Adelphia Gateway Project
The time is now! Mile-a-minute vine is up and growing! It’s along all of our trails including behind our gardens at Brightside.
Please don your gloves and long sleeves, bring a couple of big black trash bags and go to the gardens or your favorite trail; and PULL! Stuff the vines in your bags and put them out with your trash. If you need to, leave the bags at the bottom of my drive, Hana Lane, 4th drive off of Hollow on block between Charlestown and Route 29.
Best pulling on Pickering Creek Trail is on the end closest to Charlestown Road, between the little dam and the little bridge — or on the shore near the creek near the bridge leading from Pickering Dam Road entrance.
Best pulling on Pickering Dam Trail is from the Pickering Dam Road entrance right around the corner, when you are paralleling the Creek. From Route 29, go either way where the trail forks – it is everywhere!
At Brightside, there are vines covering the rocks between the gardens and the hayfields — and gardeners! Watch for it in the gardens! It is also to be found along the mown path that leads from the gardens by the house, down the hill and up toward the new paved trail.
The next two weeks are our window of opportunity – before the vines flower and berry!
