Bristol Township released a new promotional video this week to highlight the vast infrastructure improvements made since 2012 and promote the positive developments in the township–The 2 ½ -minute video which is narrated by Council President Craig Bowen, is the result of months of creative work. “The cost of the video was next to nothing,” said Bristol Township Manager Bill McCauley. “We produced it for less than $800 since most of the work was done in-house,” said McCauley. The video also targets those who aren’t familiar with our community and gives them a feel for Bristol Township and what it is like to live, work and do business here.  “We hope to attract more out-of-town visitors and businesses,” said McCauley.

Levittown Chosen As 41st Best Place To Live By Money Magazine
Money Magazine, in its annual Best Places to Live 2016 edition, has named the Levittown section of Bristol Township as the 41st best place to live in America. Levittown is the only Pennsylvania community to make the list. The magazine cited jobs, affordable housing, property taxes, public schools, healthcare, recreational opportunities, and low crime as their criteria for the methodology in determining their rankings.
Council President Craig Bowen said that it was a great accomplishment to be recognized by a highly-regarded national publication such as Money Magazine. “The Township Council made some very difficult decisions to reduce the cost of government and invested millions of tax dollars to improve Bristol Township,” Bowen said. “It’s nice to be saluted nationally.  ”Bowen noted that the Council’s priorities of job creation, improving housing stock, lowering property taxes, and investing in technology to bring the police department up to date to fight crime have clearly paid off.

FEMA has Reclassified Properties in Several Large Areas of Bristol Township for Flood Insurance

FEMA has released new maps for public review.  The new maps – also known as digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) –reflect current flood risks.  These new maps are available at the Bristol Township Administration Building for Bristol Township residents to review.


Residents shall investigate if their property in Bristol Township has been added to a higher flood risk zone, known as a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA).  If a property owner is located in the new higher-risk area and has a mortgage from a federally-regulated lender, then by federal law, the lender must require the owner to carry flood insurance at the time the flood maps become effective.  The required flood insurance is available through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a federally underwritten program provided by nearly 100 insurance companies and written through licensed insurance agents.  Lower-cost “Preferred Risk Policy” options are offered by the NFIP, for properties being mapped into higher-risk areas for the first time.  For more information on flood insurance, you may want to visit the National Flood Insurance Program’s website, www.floodsmart.gov.


If there has been an error in the reclassification of the effected property, the owner must file a protest or appeal with FEMA.  To learn more about the appeal process, see FEMA’s Criteria for Appeals of Flood Insurance Rate Maps Section 3.1 available through www.fema.gov
