Mayor Keffer Announces All New Upper Darby One Center is Open to Residents

The new Upper Darby One Center will provide our community with a new, ADA accessible, one-stop space for our constituent services.

UPPER DARBY, PA: On January 18, 2023, Mayor Keffer held the ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the opening of the all new Upper Darby One Center.  The One Center is housed on the ground floor of the Municipal Building and can be entered from Garrett Road. The newly renovated space, which sat empty for 10 years since the municipal branch of the library moved, is ADA accessible and the center boasts a modern, open design with customer service representatives during regular business hours to help our residents with almost all of the constituent services offered by the township. 

“Accessibility was the driving force behind the development of the One Center - not just the physical accessibility to the space, but also the services we provide,” said Mayor Barbarann Keffer. “Now Upper Darby residents, businesses, and guests can go to one place and get the help they need right when they walk in the door from assistance with tax payments to applying for permits. This space has been empty since 2011 and when I first visited this space at the start of my administration, it was being used as storage. I saw the potential of this location and am pleased to finally return this space to the public. After over 10 years, it will become a community resource once again and showcase Upper Darby as a world-class provider of municipal services.” 

The One Center staff are trained on relevant municipal processes for residents of Upper Darby. Community members can now use a single space for needs such as paying taxes or parking tickets, seeking information on licenses or permits and receiving help starting applications, making appointments, reserve recreational spaces, entering requests for code enforcement, and many more. The One Center will also be a new location for presenting informational meetings and seminars. 

“The Mayor and her administration have been dedicated to making lasting reinvestments in Upper Darby since she took office,” said Deputy CAO Rita LaRue. “This is a reinvestment which the community will reap benefits for decades to come. By streamlining the way we organize our constituent services, we hope to make your day a little easier.”
