Here are the highlights from the Borough of Phoenixville Fall 2022 Newsletter for those of you who prefer to read things online!

I just received my copy of the Welcome to the Borough of Phoenixville Fall 2022 Newsletter, and I wanted to write a quick post to include the highlights for those of you who prefer to read things online!

A Letter from Mayor Urscheler

Mayor Peter J. Urscheler wrote a wonderful letter describing the renewed, positive energy he feels in our community. He believes that this energy comes from both longtime and new residents, as well as from first-time and frequent visitors. It comes from people from all walks of life who are contributing their hopes, dreams, and energy to shaping our shared home.

“These visionaries knew that we had something special and that Phoenxiville’s greatest successes would come from ensuring that everyone who wants to contribute, in whatever way they can, has an opportunity; that every voice that wants to speak has a place to be respected and heard.”

~ Mayor Peter J. Urscheler, Phoenixville, PA

Department of Planning and Code Enforcement

The following reminders and information regarding sidewalks and outdoor fire pits was included in the Phoenixville Fall 2022 Newsletter:

Maintaining Safe Sidewalks

“The owner of a property within the Borough of Phoenixville shall be responsible to maintain the curbs and sidewalks in a safe condition, including on their property or wherever their property abuts a street or alley in the Borough of Phoenixville.”

Residents are reminded to routinely inspect for damage to their sidewalks and make repairs or replacements when necessary. Wet leaves, rocks, sand, dirt, debris, and areas of pooling water that may turn to ice or become slick should also be addressed.

Outdoor Fire Pits

Portable outdoor fireplaces should be kept at LEAST 15 feet away from any dwelling or combustible material.

Recreational fires, such as a traditional fire ring, should be less than 2 feet in diameter and are required to be placed a MINIMUM of 25 feet away from any dwelling or combustible material.

Residents are reminded that while there are no permits needed for the enjoyment of outdoor fireplaces or recreational fires, they are required to have some sort of extinguishing capability nearby for immediate use, such as a fire extinguisher, dirt, sand, or a garden hose. It is also required that the fire is constantly attended while burning.
