Middletown Township will soon have residents involved to address their traffic and transportation concerns. The Board of Supervisors recently approved the creation of the Citizens’ Traffic Commission to work with the Township Administration, Police Department, and traffic engineer.

The Township and Supervisors believe the new Commission will help streamline traffic concerns by taking input directly from citizens and forming a central point of contact for the community. The issues will be examined based on the nature and extent of the traffic problems, then recommended to the Board of Supervisors. The new group will consist of five appointed Middletown residents.

“We’re anticipating quarterly meetings,” Stephanie Teoli Kulhs, Township Manager said at a recent meeting. “We’ve already got one or two (applications) that have come in already. We encourage folks that have an interest to submit.”

Applications to join the Commission must be submitted to Kulhs by Friday, Feb. 23 and can be found online or by clicking here. Residents will then go through a short interview process with the Board.

“It’s not like interviewing for a job that you’re unqualified for, so it’s a very friendly process and we try not to take up too much of your time,” Chairperson Amy Strouse explained.

All applications can be returned to the Municipal Center located at 3 Municipal Way, Langhorne.
