Public Input Sought for Parks Project

Dallas Township is seeking another round of public input after receiving a grant for master plans for Dallas Township Park and Kunkle Park. Barry Isett & Associates (Isett), a multi-discipline engineering firm with offices in Wilkes Barre and Hazleton, was contracted to prepare the plans.

A combined study committee and public meeting will take place on Wednesday, April 5, 2017, at 6:30 p.m., in the Dallas Township Municipal Building located at 2919 SR 309 Highway, in Dallas. The meeting will provide an overview of the project to date, summary of the public survey results, review concept plans for Dallas Township Park, and will be followed by a question and answer session. Township residents are strongly encouraged to attend.

Dallas Township Park, located off Southside Avenue and Lakeside Drive adjacent to PA 309, is a small, multi-use public park situated amongst residential neighborhoods in close proximity to central Dallas Borough. The park features a baseball field, basketball court, playground, and hiking trails. Kunkle Park is a large, quiet park located off Old Tunkhannock Highway. It features a large open space, that was previously used as a baseball field, and a moderately difficult hiking trail loop in native mature woodland. Both parks are open to the public from dawn until dusk.

More information regarding the public meeting can be found by contacting the municipal office at 570-674-2000, ext. 2008 during business hours.

Winter Parking Reminder

Winter Parking Reminder for Residents of Dallas Township

Residents of Dallas Township are reminded that, except in locations whereby Ordinance restrictions are more severe, the Township’s Winter Parking Ordinance prohibits vehicles from parking on Township roads and streets from November 1, 2016 through April 30, 2017, inclusive, between 6:00P.M. and 6:00A.M. This allows the Dallas Township Road Department to effectively clear streets and roads of snow. The Winter Parking Ordinance is in effect regardless of whether or not it snows. Police will enforce the winter parking ban as part of their night patrol duties.
