Delco Alert - June 25, 2020

Good afternoon, this is Mayor Barbarann Keffer with some important reminders for Upper Darby township residents.

Fireworks have become a nuisance here in our community and we have gotten many, many calls and emails from residents these last few weeks. This is a friendly reminder that fireworks are prohibited in Upper Darby Township by Ordinance No. 2765 which expressly prohibits the discharge of “any explosive substance or mixture of chlorates or nitrates.” In addition, fireworks can be very traumatizing for our young children, pets and Veterans suffering from PTSD. Please show respect for our combat veterans and your neighbors who might be affected by the sudden noise created by consumer fireworks.

Tomorrow the Governor will move Delaware County to the Green Phase of his reopening plan. I am excited for additional businesses and our parks to reopen and I urge everyone to follow guidance from public health officials to ensure the health and safety of our community. If you are sick, please stay home. Continue to allow for social distancing of at least 6 feet. Please wear a mask or face covering in public.

Metered parking enforcement has resumed so that customers have access to parking at local businesses. Parks and playgrounds are re-opening and residents are cautioned to use them at their own risk since playground equipment cannot be sanitized after every single use. Permits will begin being issued by the Recreation Department for the Township’s outdoor facilities. Please contact Recreation at or by calling 610-789-3656.

This is Mayor Barbarann Keffer thanking the Upper Darby Community for their continued cooperation and support. Our community is stronger together and these small courtesies go a long way to making everyone safer and healthier.
