Welcome to Berkshire Township, Delaware County, Ohio

While their warning is specifically about child safety, the same advice goes for pets, too. A car can heat up in minutes beyond a child or a pet's ability to survive. For more information and good advice on how to avoid this tragedy or what to do if you witness this occurring, CLICK HERE

Summer Heat and Closed Cars = Disaster for Children and Pets

TRAFFIC NEWS - GOOD AND NOT AS GOOD

The good news is the long-awaited traffic light at SR 3 and South Galena Road is scheduled to be up and operating by the end of June. This will close the chapter on a lengthy improvement project at that intersection.



The Delaware General Health District has issued an important advisory to help us all remember that it's not safe to leave a child in a car EVER but especially in the summer heat. 52 children died in the U.S. in 2018 and every single death was preventable.

LOOKING FOR SOMETHING FUN TO DO WITH THE LITTLE ONES THIS SUMMER?
Beginning June 4th, the historic Strand Theatre in downtown Delaware is hosting a summer movie series for kids, and admission is free.*


Every Tuesday in June and July the Strand is partnering with different Delaware County groups by asking for donations, ranging from personal hygiene supplies to toys to school supplies to canned food in lieu of a cost for a ticket. You can catch a fun movie with your little ones and help our community at the same time.


Please click HERE for a link to the flyer with more details on donations and a weekly schedule of times and films to be shown.


*Free to all with suggested donations for local charities.

On the not as convenient side, Cheshire Road is closed between Berlin Manor Dr. on the east to Gregory Rd. on the west, as they are building a roundabout at Cheshire and Piatt Rds. It is scheduled to be closed until sometime in August. This affects those who use Cheshire Rd. going west to SourcePoint, Rt. 23, Ohio Health on Ohio Health Blvd. etc.

We sometimes receive calls regarding noise levels and what is acceptable, etc.


When it comes to regulating things, townships do not have the same abilities as other municipalities to limit or enforce activities. In addition, while we live in the "country" we realize that most of us have neighbors within earshot, and the hope is that people are simply respectful of that fact and act accordingly.
