East Marlborough Township
Carved from the Unwieldy Marlborough Township back in 1729
East Marlborough Township
was established by the Pennsylvania State Legislature in 1729. East and
West Marlborough Townships were carved out of the larger
Township, which was considered too unwieldy. Pennsylvania rural
Townships were originally established by the Commonwealth legislature
to provide a network of roads to assist farmers in getting their crops
Today, maintenance of Township roads is the primary
responsibility of Townships of the Second Class. Later, Zoning
Regulations were added to the responsibilities of local municipalities.
East Marlborough is sixteen square miles in area and includes the world
famous horticultural displays at Longwood Gardens, as well as New
Bolton Center, the veterinary school of the University of
Pennsylvania, where pioneering animal
research is done We are the caretakers of several surviving Penn Oak
Trees which were young trees when William Penn walked this land. In
addition, there are several surviving stations of the Underground
Railroad which assisted escaping slaves on their journey to freedom in
the north. Local groups are working to restore one of the Underground
Railroad, located on US Route One. Historic Unionville Village
is listed on the National Register of Historic buildings and towns.
Sleepy Marlborough Village, with its original buildings, including a
Quaker Meeting House, is located at the intersection of Marlborough
Road and Marlborough Spring Road. We invite you to visit the area in

UNIONVILLE AREA REGIONAL PLAN
In May, 2009, East Marlborough, West Marlborough, and Newlin Townships applied
to receive grant funding through
the Vision Partnership Program to prepare a regional comprehensive plan. The County agreed to provide funding for this
collaborative effort between the three townships and
which has resulted in a comprehensive plan document that will help
guide future land use decisions for the region. Go to http://www.theregionalplan.com/ to view the accepted plan.
NOTICE: With yard clean up on everyone's mind,
you should all know that burning of brush and leaves is a very problematic issue.
East Marlborough discourages burning; the Township prohibits the smoke
and air pollution that travels onto neighbor's property. It is
impossible to burn leaves at any time without creating dangerous and
bothersome smoke. Dry brush can sometimes be burned, PROVIDED that
there is no wind to carry any smoke, odors, or sparks onto adjacent
properties. You may bring
bagged leaves and branches to the Township building. Take them to
the back of the property. SECCRA Landfill, on Route
926, will also accept bagged leaves, as well as branches and brush. The
material must be transported in a covered vehicle. The East
Marlborough road crew will chip up branches which have fallen in a
storm; we will not provide chipping service for trees and branches that
the landowner has taken down. You may call the Township Public Works to
arrange for chipping service at 610-444-1375. Please consider
neighbors and the environment before igniting any brush fires.
Don't forget that recycling is mandatory in East
Marlborough Township. Contact your trash hauler. For Information from
Chester County about recycling you can go to their website http://www.chestercountyswa.org/
