BOROUGH OF MORRISVILLE

POLICY STATEMENT

SUBJECT: HALLOWEEN TRICK-OR-TREAT ACTIVITY

It is the policy of the Mayor and Borough Council that all door-to-door trick-or-treat

activity, in connection with Halloween, shall take place on Friday, October 31, 2014,

until 8:00 p.m. All children under 16 years of age shall be accompanied by a responsible

adult.

Tips for Motorists:

• Obey speed limits;

• Watch for children walking along the road or who may run into the street;

• If you are going to a party, please remember to designate a sober driver.

Tips for Parents and Guardians:

• Buy, or make brightly-colored, highly-visible costumes for children that do not

interfere with a child's ability to see, hear or walk;

• Add strips of reflective tape to darker-colored costumes and trick-or-treat bags;

• Provide a flashlight or glow stick for children to carry;

• Always accompany children while they are trick-or-treating;

• Remind children to pay attention to their surroundings.


Tips for Children:

• Walk instead of run when crossing streets;

• Look both ways for approaching cars before stepping off the curb;

• Walk on sidewalks whenever possible.

Residents are cautioned not to permit anyone into their home unless they know the

identity of such a person; conversely, children (and parents) are cautioned not to enter

anyone's home unless they know the residents and then only if they have the permission of

a parent or guardian. Children should bring all edibles to their parent (or guardian)

before eating such items. Parents should carefully inspect all items given their children to

insure such items are safe.


The Mayor and Borough Council wish everyone a safe and happy Halloween holiday.

MORRISVILLE RIVERFRONT PRESERVE: The 8.8 acre Morrisville Riverfront Preserve is located at Delmorr and Philadelphia Avenues, it offers riverfront access to a naturalized riverfront, a unique amenity in our heavily developed region.

The project began in January 2010 which led to the re-zoning of the land by Borough Council to Natural Lands and Community Service Districts and approval by the Bucks County Open Space Program for funds to support the project.

Eradication of invasive plant species was started in September as part of a two year water safe herbicide spraying program. Morrisville is partnering with the Delaware Riverkeeper Network who is providing assistance in developing restoration strategies that will ensure a successful and sustainable project.

Replanting the area with native plant species and clearing trail paths will occur in phases.

The Preserve will be a quiet place of nature for fishermen, bird watchers, walkers and paddlers. Riverfront restoration will improve air, water, land, and habitat quality, as well as provide improved floodplain function and flood protection. The preserve will provide the opportunity for public education on the value of natural waterfront habitats. The Morrisville Riverfront Preserve is a special place that has benefits for all.
