Sellersville adopts new parking restriction


Sellersville Borough Council adopted an ordinance Monday that establishes a new parking restriction in town.

Passed in a unanimous vote, the ordinance also clarifies certain one-way travel restrictions on streets in the Upper Bucks borough.

Under the ordinance, parking on the south side of East Church Street between North Main Street and Penn Streets is now prohibited.

“Council finds that the design, width and layout of East Church Street (in that area) does not allow for the safe and efficient parking of motor vehicles,” the ordinance states.

Additionally, the new ordinance fixes language in the codified borough ordinance regarding one-way traffic on Sunday mornings on sections of East Church Street and Green Street, said Borough Manager David Rivet.

“The codified ordinance has it backwards from the established traffic pattern and signs,” Rivet explained.

As the newly adopted ordinance makes clear, westbound travel is prohibited on East Church Street from High Street to North Main Street on Sundays from 7:30 a.m. to noon.

Similarly, westbound traffic is barred on Green Street from High Street to North Main Street from 8 a.m. to noon on Sundays.

Meanwhile, the ordinance further says that Walnut Street from North Main Street to East Temple Avenue is established strictly for eastbound traffic.

Additionally, the ordinance notes that Maple Avenue from North Main Street to West Temple Avenue is open only to westbound traffic.

Also at Monday’s meeting, Councilwoman Kathleen Hallman commented that she wants to help spread the word about Sellersville’s Halloween Parade, which is planned for Saturday Oct. 28.

Entrants sign in at the Sellersville Museum, 120 E. Church Street at 9 a.m. The parade starts at 10 a.m. In the event of rain or snow, the parade will be held at the fire hall – 2 N. Main St.
