Monday, June 27, 2022 - Special Meeting - Plans for New Public Safety Building 

The Board of Supervisors held a Special Meeting on Monday, June 27 to discuss the plans for the new Public Safety Building. You may access the recording on the Board of Supervisors web page, if you did not have a chance to attend.

In response to ideas suggested by several interested residents, the Board requested that the Police Department and the Administration work with the architect to present an alternative plan for the Public Safety Building that would meet the needs of the Department but cost significantly less. The alternative plan would consider the removal of the existing barn and relocate the building in its place.

The residents collectively agreed that the barn did not represent a significant historical contribution to the site and that its removal would better serve the needs of the township.

It is anticipated that over the summer the alternative plan will be presented to the Board for review and for comparison to the original plan

Township Pond - Catch and Release

Meet a friend at the pond. You can enjoy a quiet afternoon fishing in the Township's pond.

Our pond is stocked with grass carp. Any other fish in the pond are naturally occurring, such as bass, bluegill, sunfish, and others. 

The pond has been stocked twice in recent years to regain control of the aquatic vegetation. Our last restock contained approximately 12 carp. The first stock was unfortunately killed by a bow fisherman.

Please consider barbless hooks when fishing in our pond.

The Chester County Emergency Medical Services Council recently awarded West Vincent Township Police Officer Justin Fritz a Clinical Save Commendation.

Thanks to their quick response and training, the individual went on to make a full recovery. 

Congratulations to Officer Fritz, and the LCFC QRS team!

This Weather Is For The Birds

The second EAC Beginner Bird Walk took place Saturday morning, June 18. The unusually windy weather that morning kept many of the birds grounded, so our leader, Eric Hughes, shifted the focus to plant identification and discussions of habitat. Eric is a recent Cornell graduate, a birder since youth, and active on Cornell's eBird website.


There are always exciting gifts of nature to uncover at Opalanie Park, which is quickly becoming the “IN” place for birding in Chester County. According to eBird, 109 species have been observed in the park during the past year. You can check out their impressive bird list on their website under Explore/Hotspots.  


A beautiful Eastern Comma butterfly (pictured) was seen along the hike as well as a very rare sighting of the striking red headed woodpecker (pictured), an unusual sight in Chester County.
