Board spurns petition for road paving


March 26, 2021

Despite receiving a petition from 27 area residents, the Thomson Township Board of Supervisors voted Thursday to push back the paving of East Riverside Road and Serenity Way to 2022 because of a planned building project that could negatively impact a new road surface.

It’s not the first petition submitted to township officials. In 2014, residents submitted a petition, but it was rejected then because the township had a comprehensive plan for repaving.

According to the petition, that plan stated that all roads would be paved by 2018, yet East Riverside and Serenity Way remain unpaved.
