Newtown Township has many things to offer our residents and our visitors. Our history, our homes, our businesses and our open spaces are treasured resources that we do not take for granted. An essential resource to our resident and visitors is our natural environment and how we as a community care for it.
Our environmental legacy has been passed on from generations past, and as caretakers, Newtown residents must be responsible for conserving our resources and passing them to future generations yet to come.
