Litter & Beautification

The goal is to support this part of Middle Smithfield Township’s mission statement:
“…improve the quality of life for our citizens, and
improve the business environment for our enterprises through creative leadership, dedicated personnel and collaboration.”

The township’s Litter and Beautification Committee mission is to engage residents and business owners in Middle Smithfield Township to improve the appearance and aesthetics of our township by providing positive leadership and opportunities for volunteers to contribute toward the cleanliness and beautification of our township.

Since the beginning of 2013, the Litter and Beautification Committee has made significant success in the first bi-annual “1,000 Feet of Street”.

The “1,000 Feet of Street” program started with the thought of achieving 100 feet of clean street per volunteer.  With the dedication of many volunteers and the township’s Public Works Department, the 100 feet of street quickly became 5-miles of street!

During the first 1,000 Feet of Street held on June 15th, over 5-miles of street were cleaned and a 20-yard dumpster was filled with debris from Route 209, Sellersville Road, and Municipal Drive.

Over the course of the year, the L&B Committee is working on

  • Adopt a Road: The Township owns 76 miles of road, among these 124 roads are in the Adopt a Road Program.  Approximately half our roads have been adopted.  We are working on the other half!
  • Flowerbeds: Expand Existing beds and create new ones.
  • Holiday Lighting: Township public spaces/Route 209 and looking to start a Holiday Decorating Contest for Businesses and Homeowner
  • Community Gardens: Stay tuned in 2014
