Newtown Area, Bucks County Pennsylvania
A Model for Regional Cooperation

505 Wheatfield Lane, Timber Ridge, Upper Makefield
Three Newtown Area  communities (Newtown, Upper Makefield and Wrightstown Townships) decided in the 1970s that they were not isolated towns and that their futures were intertwined. Traffic from one town traveled through the neighboring towns. They were all part of the same school district. Streams and creeks crossed municipal boundaries, and the central core of business and commerce in Newtown could not thrive without support from nearby townships.
What is so remarkable about this alliance of local governments coming together? Pennsylvania has a long and strong tradition of local government control. The Newtown area elected officials understood the value of cooperation but also realized that compromises would be needed to work for a better community. What they agreed to and accomplished remains unique in Pennsylvania ... and a model statewide for regional cooperation.
