“We are trying to inform the businesses and residents of the improvements to West Broad Street and solicit their support as we try to secure funding for the project,” said Township Administrator Tracy Hatmaker.

Township officials will also discuss other improvement incentives for the West Broad Corridor, such as tax abatements for businesses expanding in the area.
