Newtown Township Historic Preservation Ordinance

Friday, March 04, 2022 1:46 PM | Cathy Cavalier-Gach (Administrator)

The Newtown Township Board of Supervisors voted to approve and signed into law the Newtown Township Preservation Ordinance on February 28th, 2022. The vote was unanimous and puts into place a long needed process for the protection of our many historic resources. Our five nationally registered historic sites are the first to be protected as Class I properties under the new ordinance. Other properties can and will be added following a specific process outlined in the ordinance. An Historic Commission of seven Newtown residents will be appointed to oversee the process and present recommendations to the board of supervisors. For specifics and more explanations please visit the Square Tavern on a Saturday between 11am and 5pm to speak with the Historical Society President,  or email info@nshistory.org. The ordinance is posted on this website as well as the township website.
