Rest assured - we'll be there every step of the way to help you, because ultimately we all just want to make UPT a great place to live.
Upper Providence Township Council
The Upper Providence Township Council is composed of 5 elected officials from the 5 voting precincts of UPT. Council decides on almost all important Township matters, including setting the budget, tax rates, trash collection fees, approving or disapproving of land developments and capital projects, writing ordinances and setting Township-wide ambition and goals. Councilmembers are elected to a 4-year term.
In 2023, there are 2 seats up for election in the 2nd District and 4th District. The 2nd District is generally the southeastern portion of the Township (Rose Tree Estates, Cherry Street, State Road and nearby neighborhoods) and the 4th District is generally and currently (pending redistricting) the central portion of the Township (Rose Tree Road and between 252 and Orange Street). If redistricting is passed, the 2nd District would stay largely the same, but the 4th district would shift to being the area around Providence Road south of the bypass (Rose Tree Road would join a new district).
If you live in either the 2nd or 4th District and have desires to run for Township Council, please contact us today! We'll meet with you, discuss the details of running and get the ball running before the Primary election in May 2023!
Rose-Tree Media School Board
The RTM School Board is composed of 9 elected officials from the 3 municipalities in Rose-Tree Media. Council decides on almost all important school related matters, including, but not limited to, setting the budget and corresponding tax rates, setting curriculum standards and deciding on land development and capital projects.
