"Happening in the Heights"

"Happening in the Heights" is a weekly videos that's a team effort between the Communications Committee and our Township Business Administrator, Liza Viana. The two work together to create short, fun videos to help residents easily find out what they need to know about important Township updates and all the great community events going on in town each week.

New videos are posted on Thursday nights here, on the Township Facebook page as well as on the Township YouTube Channel.  You can subscribe to the YouTube channel to make sure you don’t miss any episodes.  The features are a few minutes long, and highlight fun community events that you won’t want to miss.
