Cranberry’s commitment to getting the most out of its money will continue in 2024.
In keeping with the expectations set through previous budgets, the Board of Supervisors plans to consider adoption of the tentative 2024 budget that maintains current tax rates on Thursday, December 7.
The fiscally sound budget simultaneously pursues value-enhancing community assets while advancing critical infrastructure needs. It also ensures tax rates remain unchanged and continues efforts that have earned Cranberry a Aaa Moodys Rating.
The budget focuses on further improving and maintaining the Township’s infrastructure, including:
- Replacement of the Franklin Acres lift station
- Develop funding strategy for the Brush Creek Treatment Plant solids upgrade project
- Complete an update to the Transportation Impact Fee program
- Phase 2 of the Township’s Municipal Separated Storm Sewer System plan, focusing on streambank restoration in the Cedarbrook, Manor Creek Farms, Glenbrook Manor, and Settlers Grove areas.
- Pinehurst culvert replacement
- Develop a Route 19 water line replacement strategy and begin design
- Continued work on the Municipal Center Modernization project, including technology, furniture, fixtures, and appliances, as well as the total renovation of the front of the building to include the Armstrong Great Lawn project.
- High-quality maintenance of 136 miles of Township-owned roads, including traffic signal upgrades along the Township’s busiest corridors.
As has been a priority for decades, the Township will continue planning for the future by looking at the needs of the community. Planning efforts include:
- Final Engineering of the Community Park North Master Plan
- Development of the Powell Farm Master Plan
- Development of a Water Park Master Plan
- Implementation of the Golf Course Master Plan
- Advance an update to the pedestrian/bike plan to improve mobility
- Advancement of an Arts, Culture, and Recreation Center feasibility study
