Waste of money. Don’t do it. Organized team of interested people, Business attractionInfrastructure, Economic DevelopmentRecreation Facilities/Activities, Community Preservation, Community Involvement and CommunicationSeems to me that farmland is slowly being turned into housing. Not always bad, but need to make sure it doesn’t dissapoee. Don’t waste any money on this please. Besides all the taxes we/they already pay??? Seriously. Stop asking questions like this. Businesses help all the time with school event and athletic team sponsorships, charity events, etc. They would have even more money to do that if they weren’t taxed so high. Seems like they already are. Reduce administrative staff/costs and reduce taxes. No. Lower taxes. More business.

Zoning so that new developments can have businesses and public areas in walking distance. Safe walking spaces.
No.

I personally think we are losing the historical aspect of the community because the historical buildings are not well kept (excluding the ones owned by the Boro and Twp)
Something with an Eagle and the Red and Black colors.
Use of fields and new park area, fundraising, encouraging community involvement with district personnel so "everyone knows everyone"
If they don't have money to donate to help a particular cause for the district, then donate time and volunteer.
More community outings. Things like National Night Out, but education and community based versus security and community based. Teach kids to get out and volunteer and motivate them to do so.
Station 6 field only because of National Night Out and the carnivalNone, everything was discussed that I can think of at the moment.
I think so, but I wish the fire departments would work together more because Station 9 is definitely more advanced.
