1. Cecil Township

Pittsburgh suburb Cecil Township tops our list of safe cities in the great state of Pennsylvania. Cecil Township is known for its annual Fall Festival, where Washington County residents and visitors have enjoyed local culture, art, music and food for the past 26 years. And with a great track record for maintaining the safety of its residents, it’s no wonder the township has grown by more than 16% since 2000.

Cecil Township is a family-friendly town and part of what draws families to settle here is the security its residents enjoy. According to the most recent FBI Crime Report, Cecil Township has been crime free when it comes to rape, murder and even motor vehicle theft, which is pretty amazing for a city that hosts a large festival where vehicles are especially vulnerable when everyone’s distracted by the latest performer or the chance for a pony ride.

Participants needed for a groundwater monitoring project.  For more information contact:
Beth Kahkonen, Washington County Watershed Alliance, 724-503-4785, bethk@pawccd.org

The Washington County Watershed Alliance (WCWA) and Southwest PA Environmental Health Project (SWPA-EHP), with assistance from Carnegie Mellon University’s (CMU) CREATE lab, are conducting a large-scale water monitoring project in Washington County, PA.  Our goal is to develop a device that will allow homeowners to routinely monitor their well or spring water quality.  We will also continue to monitor stream water quality through the WCWA datalogger program, to track and identify possible pollutants traveling through both groundwater and surface water. 



The League of Women Voters of Washington County announces that information about government at all levels (local, state and national) is now available in the League's 2013 Facts for Citizens.  The publication is available online at washingtoncounty.palwv.org and in limited print quantities at local libraries and municipal offices.  The LWV, a nonpartisan political organization established in 1920, encourages informed and active participation in government and influences public policy through education and advocacy.



Currently there are Seven ZIP codes in Cecil Township. Having that many ZIP codes within one municipality can create problems for residents, businesses, and emergency service providers. Because ZIP codes are often not aligned with municipal boundaries, millions of Americans have mailing addresses in neighboring jurisdictions. This can cause higher insurance rates, confusion in voter registration, misdirected property and sales tax revenues for municipalities, property value effects as well as a lack of community identity.

If you would like to support Cecil Township in its quest to create a uniform ZIP code, please click on the following link:  CECIL TOWNSHIP ZIPCODE PETITION
