Development Summary NCBC

Lower Merion Active Transportation Survey

Lower Merion Township is in the process of trying to better understand community concerns related to pedestrian infrastructure through its Active Transportation Plan. In furtherance of this, LMT has put out a survey on Active Transportation which includes the ability to suggest location-specific improvements on a map.

This is a great opportunity to voice your concerns to the township in a way that they will be able to use in the near future to improve our local pedestrian and vehicular landscape.

Welcome to The Neighborhood Club of
Bala Cynwyd

Message from our President

Welcome to the Neighborhood Club of Bala Cynwyd!

We have an exciting year ahead! We are reinvigorating existing local organizations and creating new traditions to build community. Have you met the Tree Tenders team? They are back in action after a hiatus. As for new traditions, we are holding a food drive at our polling places on the Spring and November election days. We also plan to answer the call from the American Red Cross and host our first Blood Drive. We are also communicating with the Township about important development and zoning issues, such as the redevelopment of Bala Avenue.

Join us in building community and helping your neighbors, and at the same time, learn about and influence decision-making for the critical issues that concern the citizens of Bala Cynwyd. We hope to see you at a meeting soon!

NCBC President
