Coyotes in LM!

From LM Township:

The Board of Commissioners wants residents to be aware that there have been several confirmed coyote sightings throughout Lower Merion Township with the most recent being in the Villanova area.

A coyote is a medium sized predator, it is an opportunistic feeder and extraordinarily adaptable to a wide range of habitats. Coyotes thrive in suburban/urban as well as rural areas, and will utilize whatever food is naturally available, including small animals, birds, insects and fruits, as well as artificial sources such as garbage, pet food, birdseed and compost. Residents should take precautions to eliminate any food sources in their yard and neighborhood to avoid creating problems with coyotes. Pet owners are advised to keep cats indoors, and dogs under control during the day and in secured kennels or indoors at night.

Coyotes are typically shy and elusive, however if observed, avoid the animal and notify the Lower Merion Police Department by calling 911 or 610-649-1000. If you have any other questions regarding coyote contact the Animal Warden at 610-645-6215.

Township Nears Completion Of Revised Noise Ordinance

After more than two years of discussion and public meetings, the township Board of Commissioners has drafted a revised noise ordinance that appears to be a major improvement over the existing regulations.

At a meeting two weeks ago, the commissioners agreed on the wording for a new noise ordinance. The board will conduct a special Building & Planning Committee meeting on July 5th at approximately 7:50 p.m. to verify the final language and authorize it to be publicly advertised.

A final vote on adoption is scheduled for the July 19th commissioners’ meeting.

The revised ordinance in its present form is very close to what was recommended two years ago by Dr. Carr Everbach, a nationally renowned acoustical engineer and professor at Swarthmore College. Dr. Everbach was retained by the township three years ago to assist the commissioners and township staff in the ordinance revision process.

We are providing links to Dr. Everbach’s report and the latest version of the revised ordinance.
