Important (or Not) Issues
For more than 4 years now, I
have been hosting my “Issues of
Importance to Newtown Township
Residents” survey.
In 2021, 145 people responded as
shown here.
Interestingly, fully one-third of
respondents do not think
attracting new business to
Newtown is important.
Take the Survey:

Considering that the website is the main way that the township communicates with
residents, it is crucial that its usability be improved. As Peter Drucker, who was
arguably the world's greatest management consultant, famously said, “If you can’t
measure it, you can’t improve it.” See a Google Analytics report for township website
for the period of Apr 1, 2021 through Sep 20, 2021: https://bit.ly/NTwebAnalytics

Say “Yes” to Hybrid Meetings
Over 160 Newtown Residents Signed
My Petition.
There is no need to put the public at
risk. Many residents overwhelmingly
support "hybrid" public meetings that
make it easier for them to attend
important public meetings such as BOS
meetings by giving them the option to
not only attend in person but also to
attend virtually via Zoom or some other
remote technology.
If you agree, I urge you to sign my
Petition to the Board of Supervisors.
Sign the Petition:
http://www.change.org/HybridMeetingPetition
[The image shows how the Newtown Zoning Hearing Board
improvised a "hybrid" meeting to allow one of its members
to attend virtually. Not an optimal solution by any means!]

D’Aprile Calls Residents “Lazy”
It was a sad night at the
8 September 2021, Newtown
Board of Supervisors meeting.
In a comment before the BOS,
Newtown Grant resident John
D’Aprile was of the opinion that
the township should not spend
money on hybrid meetings so that
“lazy” residents can attend. “Why
should we cater to someone who
is lazy and does not want to come
to meetings?,” quipped Mr.
D’Aprile. Quote/Unquote!

  • 2. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Important (or Not) Issues For more than 4 years now, I have been hosting my “Issues of Importance to Newtown Township Residents” survey. In 2021, 145 people responded as shown here. Interestingly, fully one-third of respondents do not think attracting new business to Newtown is important. Take the Survey: https://www.surveymonkey.com/r/HTGLN85
  • 3. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Considering that the website is the main way that the township communicates with residents, it is crucial that its usability be improved. As Peter Drucker, who was arguably the world's greatest management consultant, famously said, “If you can’t measure it, you can’t improve it.” See a Google Analytics report for township website for the period of Apr 1, 2021 through Sep 20, 2021: https://bit.ly/NTwebAnalytics
  • 4. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Say “Yes” to Hybrid Meetings Over 160 Newtown Residents Signed My Petition. There is no need to put the public at risk. Many residents overwhelmingly support "hybrid" public meetings that make it easier for them to attend important public meetings such as BOS meetings by giving them the option to not only attend in person but also to attend virtually via Zoom or some other remote technology. If you agree, I urge you to sign my Petition to the Board of Supervisors. Sign the Petition: http://www.change.org/HybridMeetingPetition [The image shows how the Newtown Zoning Hearing Board improvised a "hybrid" meeting to allow one of its members to attend virtually. Not an optimal solution by any means!]
  • 5. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images D’Aprile Calls Residents “Lazy” It was a sad night at the 8 September 2021, Newtown Board of Supervisors meeting. In a comment before the BOS, Newtown Grant resident John D’Aprile was of the opinion that the township should not spend money on hybrid meetings so that “lazy” residents can attend. “Why should we cater to someone who is lazy and does not want to come to meetings?,” quipped Mr. D’Aprile.

  • 7. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Hanging the 2022 Budget The Preliminary Budget saw the light of day, was advertised – aka, “hung” – on or about 15 November 2021. This was the first opportunity for residents to see the budget in all its glorious detail! The Board of Supervisors approved the final budget on 8 December 2021 without any significant changes! Was the Process Flawed? https://sco.lt/64eX8S View the video of the discussion leading up to the vote to hang the budget: https://www.johnmacknewtown.info/2022prelimvid eo.html
  • 8. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Residents Propose Cuts to Budget My “Budget Cut Survey” asks respondents to select the cuts they would support in order to maintain fire protection while ensuring an adequate reserve fund for unanticipated expenses without dipping further into the General Fund. Shown here are the results as of 19 November 2021 regard- ing capital expenditures. More results...
  • 9. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Pedestrian Safety At the 22 November 2021 Meet Mack Monday Zoom meeting, residents discussed traffic and pedestrian safety issues on North Sycamore Street near Silo Drive in Newtown. There was a lively discussion that included several ideas for mitigating the danger to both pedestrians and drivers, including suggestions by Police Chief Hearn.

  • 10. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Changing Population It is clear that Newtown area population growth is declining, especially between 2010 and 2020. The racial/ethnicity profile of all three Jointure townships show a shift to a more diverse population from 2000 to 2020. Newtown, for example, was 94% white in 2000 and 82% in 2020. The biggest change was in the “Asian Alone” category – an increase from 734 residents in 2000 to 2,201 in 2020. This category includes “Asian Indian,” which I am sure constitutes the majority of “Asian Only” residents in Newtown. More...
  • 11. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images “Euclidean Zoning” This Type of “Mixed-Use” Zoning is All the Rage Now. Seth Shapiro, Director of Planning and Urban Design at Barton Partners, was a guest speaker at the April 1, 2021, Newtown Economic Committee Zoom meeting. He focused on the problems of "Euclidean Zoning," which is a system of zoning whereby a town or community is divided into areas in which specific uses of land are permitted. Listen here: https://bit.ly/euclidianzone [“Euclidean” in this instance comes from Village of Euclid, Ohio et al. v. Ambler Realty Co., a 1926 case in which the Supreme Court upheld the right of a locality to enforce such a system.]
  • 12. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Keeping the rural look of the Newtown Bypass has been a tradition in Newtown. It is a common belief among long-time Newtown area residents that the Newtown Bypass is supposed to remain an "undeveloped" greenway. But Wawa on the Bypass may set a precedent for more development.

  • 13. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Bypass Slippery Slope Development At the March 15, 2021, Newtown Board of Supervisors Work Session representatives of Lotus Park Senior Living LLC, presented a "sketch plan" for a Senior Living facility to be located adjacent to the site of the already approved Wawa. When the owners saw an opportunity presented by the Wawa precedent, they proceeded to find a use for a plot of land that many experts consider unfit for development. Crossing Community Church may be next to sell to a developer. More...
  • 14. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images The Infamous Arcadia U-Turn! PennDOT Opposed All Other Options! On 9 September 2021, Francis Hanney, Senior Manager at PennDOT’s Traffic Services Division, hosted an online meeting with residents to discuss road improvements to facilitate access and egress to the approved Arcadia Green development at the intersection of Newtown Bypass and Buck Road. Mr. Hanney explained why the U-turn is the best option.

  • 15. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Specific complaints from residents regarding this plan included: (1) the planned access to Durham Road via Municipal Drive was unsafe, (2) a 2008 Durham Road Traffic Study concluded that the preferred access to Durham Road from any development in the area is North Drive, and (3) the Township should not be giving up public land to allow access to Municipal Drive. Eventually, the residents won out and a new plan was put forward with access via North Drive as recommended by PennDOT. More... Controversial Toll Plan Denied! I dubbed this the “penis road”
  • 16. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images At it's January 13, 2021, public meeting, the Newtown Board of Supervisors voted 3-2 against agreeing to a settlement with Newtown Bucks Association regarding Chick-fil-A and a "retail pad" in the Newtown Shopping Center. The supervisors, however, would have liked to approve a plan to mitigate traffic lining up for Chick-fil-A. The applicant, IMHO, could have avoided this by submitting 2 separate applications.

On Thursday, 29 July 2021 Federal Agents from the US Food & Drug Administration (FDA), Homeland Security Investigations (HSI), The Department of Labor, US Health & Human Services & other Federal branches raided each of the KVK Tech facilities located within Newtown Township.

Did you know KVK Tech is #7 Among the TOP TEN Biggest Rx Opioid Manufacturers!]
  • 18. 2021. John Mack. All rights reserved. 2021 Year in Images Clark Nature Center Trails Unusable! The trails have been closed to the public for 4 years due to trees killed by an insect known as the Emerald Ash Borer. The trails were closed “indefinitely” to the public in the spring of 2017 due to the hazard of falling dead ash trees along the trails. But after 4 years of inaction, some people believe it is time to have a plan to do what is necessary to open these trails again to the public. More: https://sco.lt/8oCTAm [Image shows multiple dead ash trails near the entrance to the Blue Trail in the Clark Nature Center. In December 2021, the township paid a tree service contractor $4,560 to remove an unspecified number of dead trees in the Center – probably closer to the park entrance than to the trails.]
