Welcome to Solebury Township
Solebury — A Natural Choice
It is our choice to protect and preserve the beauty, unique character and natural resources of Solebury Township for our residents, both now and in the future.
While balancing the rights of the individual property owner with the good of the community as a whole, we will manage growth to promote sustainability of our natural resources, preserve our land, and protect and revere our historic heritage...

Police Identify Van Operator
The Solebury Twp. Police Dept. With assistance from other police agencies have identified the operator of the white van involved in the suspicious activity on May 13, 2014. We appreciate everyone's assistance with calling in tips. Additional info will be released at a later date.
Solebury Moves Forward on Public Works Improvements
After a long and difficult winter season that pushed Township road crews and equipment to the limit, the Board of Supervisors is moving forward on options to upgrade Solebury's public works facilities.
Currently, the Township's road maintenance and snow removal equipment are housed in a 50-year-old garage located behind the Township Hall. Last week, the Board agreed to hire a Bedminster-based architecture firm to present plans for a new, one-story facility on unused land adjacent to the Township facilities on Sugan Road.

Old Carversville Road Improvements Protect Environment, Preserve Character
The Solebury Township Public Works Department will begin installing a new stone road surface on Old Carversville Road beginning April 8. The new surface will allow for better drainage, which benefits our local water resources, while maintaining the rural quality of one of the Township's frequently-traveled country roads.
The new road material is similar to ordinary road gravel, except that it is much more uniform in size, allowing it to compact better without hindering drainage. Once applied, the new road surface should provide a smoother ride and require less maintenance. It will also provide good drainage, preventing storm water from running off, which reduces the chance of ponding and flash floods.
The project will follow guidelines recommended by the state's Dirt and Gravel Road Program, a 17-year effort to develop environmentally-sensitive and cost-effective approaches to maintaining and preserving Pennsylvania's traditional roadways.
