Board of Supervisor’s Minutes, June 8, 2020 (unofficial)


Noblestown Road Closure

Trumbull Corporation will be implementing daily road closures (6 AM to 6 PM) starting on June 26th, 2020 on SR 4037 (Noblestown Road). SR 4037 closure will run through July 24th, 2020 with the road reopening on July 24th, 2020 at 6 PM. The detour for these daily closures is John’s Avenue.

Recycling unit at Township Building removed

With sincere regret, the Board of Supervisors has been forced to suspend the recycling receptacle located at the Township Building. The onset of quarantine has spurred a tremendous surge in use, and irresponsible use. Plastic bags are a contaminant, which incur charges of $500.00 per incident, which is financially catastrophic to the township. In recent weeks, Waste Management has failed to even empty the unit as regular users no doubt observed. Very similar receptacles are located at Imperial Landfill at 11 Boggs Road, Imperial, PA. The units are accessible 24/7, free, and no-sort the same way the township unit was. Additionally, a paper retriever and a wagon for cans is present behind First Commonwealth Bank in McDonald. Recycling options will be considered going forward, as the Board is very sorry that we could not continue with the current unit.

Robinson Township Municipal Building accessibility update

The Robinson Township building is now fully open to the public, with social distancing and best practices implemented for sanitation.  Masks and sanitizer are available at the building for any visitors who may forget.  Meeting capacity will be limited based on recommended spacing.

The Real Estate Tax Collector, Alisha M. Kendall, has cancelled all future in-person collection hours until further notice.  Mailing in of tax payments is highly recommended to the address listed on the bill.  Please do not visit Ms. Kendall’s home in-person without contacting her.  When tax collection policy changes, it will be noted here and via Facebook.

Phone calls and emails are always welcome, and the staff will be happy to help you accomplish goals remotely whenever possible.  The general office number is 724-926-8700.

Thank you for your cooperation and be well.

Development Opportunities

Our Township welcomes the opening of the Southern Beltway.  Construction on section 55A2 has just begun, with Trumbull Corporation as contractors.  Extensive work will be seen throughout 2019 and 2020 in the vicinity of Primrose / Johns Avenue / Noblestown Road as bridge structures are being built.  The U.S. Rt. 22 to Interstate 79 Project has positioned Robinson Township for steady growth for years to come.  The Beltway, coupled with our close proximity to the Pittsburgh International Airport and Downtown Pittsburgh has made Robinson Township an attractive place for businesses and new home builders.
