Have you heard of HARB (Historic Architecture Review Board)  but not exactly sure what it does? Are you in the Historic District of Langhorne and not sure what you need HARB approval for? Are you in the area of the proposed expansion of the Historic District? Or do you just want to find out more about what HARB does? All Langhorne Borough Residents are invited to an informational meeting on HARB and the proposed expansion of the Historic District on Thursday, October 20th at 7:30pm. The meeting will be held in the Richardson House (on the corner of Maple & Bellevue Aves). Light refreshments will be served. Come out and meet with HARB volunteers and your fellow residents and learn more about this important part of our community.

Message from the Mayor
Hello Residents of Langhorne Borough -
Since fall is here the leaves will start to fall so I ask you to please keep your sidewalks clear of leaves because they tend to get slippery when wet and if we all can do that it makes our borough safe to walk. Also if any of the storm drains are near you please help us keep them clear. Thank you in advance for your cooperation. Be well and be safe.
Joe Taylor, Mayor

10 Things you can do to Prevent Stormwater Runoff Pollution.

Stormwater runoff occurs when precipitation from rain or snowmelt flows over the ground. Impervious surfaces like driveways, sidewalks, and streets prevent stormwater runoff from naturally soaking into the ground. Stormwater can pick up debris, chemicals, dirt, and other pollutants and flow into a storm sewer system or directly to a lake, stream, river, wetland, or coastal water. Anything that enters a storm sewer system is discharged untreated into the waterbodies we use for swimming, fishing and providing drinking water.

Here is what you can do to help prevent stormwater runoff pollution:
1.   Use fertilizers sparingly and sweep up driveways, sidewalks, and gutters.
2.   Never dump anything down storm drains or in streams.
3.   Vegetate bare spots in your yard.
4.   Compost your yard waste.
5.   Use least toxic pesticides, follow labels, and learn how to prevent pest problems.
6.   Direct downspouts away from paved surfaces.
7.   Take your car to the car wash instead of washing it in the driveway.
8.   Check your car for leaks and recycle your motor oil.
9.   Pick up after your pets.
10. Have your septic tank pumped and system inspected regularly.
