Guenst announces $2.8 million in funding for Upper Moreland Township

State Rep. Nancy Guenst, D-Montgomery, today announced that $2.8 million in state funding was awarded to Upper Moreland Township.

Guenst said the funding, supported through the Redevelopment Assistance Capital Program, will cover costs for the complete renovation of Upper Moreland Township’s police station and township building.

“Today’s funding will go a long way in providing the resources for the much-needed renovations to Upper Moreland Township’s police station and township building,” Guenst said. “In addition, this project will allow for necessary safety measures and precautions that the previous building lacked. As always, my office will continue to advocate for funding that will have a direct impact on our community and its residents.”

Guenst said funding for this project will include the renovation of all office spaces, with the HVAC, plumbing, electric and information/data infrastructure being upgraded throughout. Upgrades to incorporate security measures to protect staff and visitors also will be made, as well as ADA improvements for the entire township building. Guenst said additional space in the township building will be gained by relocating the police department to a new, freestanding building to be constructed adjacent to the township building on township-owned property.
