Jenkintown Borough Purchase of Property for Green Space

During the summer of 2016, Jenkintown Borough was approached by the owner of 433 and 435 Cedar Street in Jenkintown. He was in the process of selling the property and had been approached by real estate developers who planned to construct six units of dense housing. The owner did not care for that plan, and approached the Borough offering to sell the property for a price significantly lower than market value.

During a period of due diligence, the Borough contracted with qualified firms and commissioned a comprehensive property appraisal, an environmental study (ESA I), and home and property inspections. Continue reading Jenkintown Borough Purchase of Property for Green Space

Halloween Seasonal Information

The Jenkintown Police Department would like to remind borough residents that threats made over social media or email are no joke. Regardless of the poster’s intent, and no matter how outlandish the subject matter, these communications must all be taken seriously and we have seen other districts and communities spend significant time and resources lately investigating these “pranks.” Parents should remind their children that any use of social media that could remotely be interpreted as a threat or attempt at intimidation is a crime, and that identifying the perpetrators is a relatively trivial matter.

We look forward to enjoying a safe and fun Halloween season in Jenkintown and we appreciate residents’ cooperation in this. If you have specific non-emergency concerns, please contact Jenkintown Police at (215) 884-1202.
