Sanitary Sewer Lateral Inspections
On September 5, 2017 the Board of Commissioners passed an ordinance that requires sanitary sewer lateral inspections at the time of sale/conveyance of an existing home or for property improvements requiring a Township building permit that also requires an Allegheny County plumbing permit. The purpose of this amendment is to help reduce or eliminate stormwater and groundwater infiltration and inflow into the sanitary sewer collection system. The ordinance can be found here

Township Street Signs
The Township of Upper St. Clair Public Works Department will begin the process of replacing the existing Street signs with the newly designed signs  the week of April 3, 2017. This will be an extended process while the department works through the system of streets. Crews will will begin on the north end of the Township (Wards 1 & 2, see attached map) and work south towards Ward 5 and hope to eventually complete the project in the year 2018.

In some locations the Street sign pole may need to be replaced or relocated, this process will involve a utility location One Call, these utilities are typically marked with paint and/or flags. The purpose of the utility locating is so the crews may bore the new pole location safely. Should you see these markings near Street sign locations you will know the reason.

During this project if you should have any questions please call the Public Works Department at 412-831-9000 x 217 or 271.

Manager's Letter

Spring/Summer 2017

The spring outdoor recreation kicked off in May with the opening of the fourth season of The Miracle League of the South Hills followed by Community Day on May 20!  The Community & Recreation Center at Boyce Mayview Park begins its ninth season in June and the tennis bubbles have been stored for the season allowing for outdoor play.  If you travel Boyce Road, you’ve most likely noticed the excavating taking place – that is the continuation of the Boyce Mayview Perimeter Trail which will travel past the former Caste Farm Barn (generously donated by the family to the Township) on Morton Road to the Rostron Drive area.  That section of trail construction is approximately 1.5 miles long.  Three miles were previously finished and only .5 mile is left to complete.  The Township is currently seeking grants to aid in that final phase, the most challenging due to the terrain and potentially the most scenic.

Housing continues to grow at Bedner Farm Estates and construction of Siena townhouses will begin soon.  Friendship Village is breaking ground on June 7 on a $39.5 million expansion that will add 50 Assisted Living apartments and 32 Memory Support suites.  Retail is expanding with a Baskin-Robbins planned in the Dunkin’ Donuts building on McMurray Road.  The Siena plan on Route 19 at Fort Couch, will welcome eateries The Porch, Hello Bistro, Duck Donuts, Nothing Bundt Cakes, Apericena, and more.  Also coming to Siena are Sports Clips, Nail Envy, Scottrade, Xfinity, and Dry Bar, with additional tenants to be announced. The CVS construction across from Siena along Fort Couch Road and Route 19 is moving along.

The Township is completing its annual roadwork having paved 6.5 miles of streets.  Public Works has begun replacing street signs to comply with a federal mandate requiring better visibility.  (If you’re interested in bidding on an old street sign, contact the Public Works Department at 412.831.9000, x. 271.)  PennDOT is currently (end of May) seal coating McMillan, Lesnett, Mayview, and Boyce Roads. The Morrow Road Bridge is slated for replacement beginning in July and plans are underway to begin the roundabout at the Lesnett/McMillan/McLaughlin Run intersection some time in 2018.  The Township recently received word that a grant has been awarded for upgrades to the Boyce/Boyce Plaza, Johnston/McMurray, and Panther Pass/McLaughlin Run Route 19 off-ramp intersections. 

Enjoy the season and all the Township has to offer!
