This is a notice to inform the residents of the upcoming roadwork in the Troxell/Sherwood Street neighborhood. Starting approximately September 9, 2020 (depending on which street you live on, this will vary) the roadway will be recycled in front of your home. Block by block, the process will involve removing the asphalt, reclaiming the material and reinstalling a “base course”. After the base course is installed the material will need to cure between 10 and 14 days. During this time, the surface will be a little rough. After the curing time is up the wearing course of asphalt will be installed. The contractor will make every effort to keep you informed of exact dates your block will be affected. Please bear with us as we upgrade the roads. Thank you in advance for your cooperation.

Today begins our Township-wide street sweeping. For the time being, the Township will still continue street sweeping and would appreciate if everyone would do their part in moving their vehicles as best as possible. We are all in this together. Keep safe and healthy!

The Township's street sweeping program commences in April. This is the fourth year for the program. The program was created in response to state and federal permit requirements in conjunction with the Township's recent renewal of our National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System (NPDES) Municipal Separate Storm Sewer System (MS4) permit. As a result of additional requirements on municipalities, the Township felt it more economical to handle street cleaning in house. A schedule has been developed for street cleaning to occur twice a month from April through October in a calendar year. Parking restrictions will be relaxed at this time, but we would appreciate everyone trying to move their vehicle if possible (signage has been placed throughout residential areas advising when parking is prohibited on the street). A schedule of the street cleaning is forthcoming.

The regularly scheduled Council Meeting on Wednesday, April 1, 2020, at 7:30 p.m. has been Cancelled.

Welcome To Hanover Township

Here you will find valuable information about the Township and its services. This website was designed to make it easier and more efficient for residents and other visitors to interact with the Township. We hope you find the site's content to be both interesting and informative.

Hanover Township was formed from the southern portion of Allen Township by decree of the Bucks County Court in 1798. Its geographic limits at that time included the present area plus that which comprises Hanover Township, Northampton County, and the area immediately south of the current Township to the Lehigh River. This original territory was retained until 1812 when Lehigh County was established and the Township was divided; approximately two-thirds of its area went to Lehigh County and one-third remained in Northampton County.
