Welcome to the Upper Darby Township website, just one of the many methods used by the Township to communicate with our residents. We encourage communication and involvement and want to provide you as much information as early as possible. You’ll be able to find us on social media, via Facebook and view all our livestreamed meetings on our YouTube channel. We also provide an area for signing up for our constant contact or for emergency notifications through the Delco Alert system. In addition, the Township provides a newsletter periodically throughout the year through the mail which can now also be viewed on the website. We also have a township calendar and current news page.
With 11 active boards, commissions, and committees, strong attendance at public meetings, and daily communications with staff and elected officials, we are benefited by an informed and involved community.
We are a community of diverse interests and backgrounds - but most are unanimous on one point: Upper Darby Township is truly a wonderful place in which to live, work and play. This website should encourage even greater involvement and understanding, helping us to be more responsive to all citizens.
Along with providing you with current information about Township government, services, and programs, you will find the latest press releases, meeting announcements, and other pertinent information available 24 hours a day. You may also use this website to submit resident requests through our the Mayor's digital request line. Also provided here is an overview of the Township's organizational structure, scope of services, and frequently asked questions (FAQ).
We encourage you to use the main navigation bar above to explore our website to the fullest.
