UPPER DUBLIN >> The township is seeing its efforts to revitalize the Fort Washington Office Park pay off in the form of state recognition.
Upper Dublin was one of several communities in the state recently recognized as part of the Governor’s Awards for Local Government Excellence.
The awards honor local government leaders for exceptional dedication to improving public services through innovative initiatives. Upper Dublin’s recognition stems from its revitalization work on the 60-year-old Fort Washington Office Park.
The township’s board of commissioners announced at its May 8 meeting that it also received citations from the state Senate and House of Representatives congratulating Upper Dublin for the award.
“The township’s board of commissioners has taken an assertive approach to revitalize the office park, including the creation of a General Municipal Authority, which has lead to significant reinvestment by the private sector,” the House citation noted. “Upper Dublin Township was also instrumental in the formation of the Fort Washington Business Alliance to work in partnership toward these ambitious goals.”
The township also announced recently that it had been awarded the 2018 Public Sector Leadership Award by the Greater Valley Forge Transportation Management Association for its office park work, specifically the completion of a Transportation Demand Management (TDM) study there.
