HATS REGIONAL BICYCLE & PEDESTRIAN COUNTS
The Fall 2021 HATS Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Program is here!
The counts, conducted exclusively by volunteers, provide vital data to our region’s planners, decision makers and anyone else interested in making walking and biking safer and more convenient in the HATS Region. They are conducted as part of the National Bicycle & Pedestrian Documentation project.
The count locations are determined as a cooperative effort between HATS planning staff, the HATS Bike/Ped Task Force and other local stakeholders.
The Fall 2021 HATS Regional Bicycle and Pedestrian Count Program will take place during the following dates and times:
Sunday, October 10, 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm

Sheepford Crossing GET Gas Project
UGI Utilities, Inc. will soon be bringing natural gas service to the Sheepford Crossing development through its GET Gas pilot program. This project includes installing proposed gas mains throughout the neighborhood utilizing directional boring techniques, also referred to as horizontal directional drilling. This technique is applied to minimize impacts to the existing roadways, curbs and sidewalks. Once the proposed gas mains are installed, residents will have the option to switch to natural gas to potentially save on annual energy bills.
This project is expected to begin in late July or early August and construction could last up to 8 weeks, depending on weather and working conditions. Work is typically completed during the hours of 7:00 AM to 4:00 PM.
Notification letters have been distributed by UGI Utilities, Inc. to all residents within the project limits. If you have not received the notification letter or if you have any construction related questions or concerns, please contact Doug Vene, UGI Project Manager, at (610) 721-2365, or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
