Upper Uwchlan Township Building Renovation and Addition

The Upper Uwchlan Township municipal building, located at 140 Pottstown Pike in the Village of Eagle, houses the township administration offices and the Police Department. The building has been expanded 2 times; first in 1987 when the original addition was made to the historic schoolhouse, and again in 1998. A new expansion of the building is now planned for 2019.

Residential and commercial growth in the Township has accelerated in recent years. The population of the Township is expected to reach 12,179 by 2020. As our Township has grown, so too have the staff and services of the Township administration and police department. The Board of Supervisors contracted with Hammel Associate Architects, LLC in 2018 to design an expansion of the Township Building at 140 Pottstown Pike. The goal of the expansion is to accommodate both current staff and expected future expansion of staff and services. 

The design adds 2,697 square feet of office space to the upper level administration offices and 3,377 square feet of space to the Police Department on the lower level. Exterior design drawings and floor plans are attached to this news release. The historic schoolhouse, where public meetings are held, will not be altered or expanded. 

At their meeting on January 22, 2019, the Board authorized advertisement for bids for this construction project. The Board anticipates construction to begin in the spring of this year. While the building is under construction, the administration offices and Police Department will temporarily relocate. Information about the relocations will be announced soon. 

All information about the construction and temporary relocation of the Township offices will be catalogued at upperuwchlan-pa.gov/constructionzone. Residents should be sure to sign up for “Latest News” updates at upperuwchlan-pa.gov/NotifyMe to get all updates directly via email or text message.
