Early settlers came here to work in area iron mines, limestone quarries & lumber yards. Tolls were collected near this location for many years to pay for the gradual improvement of “LIMEKILN PIKE” the gateway to the “NORTH HILLS AREA”. Today, North Hills prospers as a great community in which to live & work and continues the tradition of welcoming all.

What is mike about?

A comprehensive plan to improve traffic safety in our neighborhoods, protecting the next generation of North Hills residents.

Mike will work with PennDOT, legislators, the Montgomery County Planning Commission, and the Township on the development of a comprehensive study of the traffic patterns in Ward 6.  This study would include looking at intersections in residential neighborhoods, speed restrictions, and pedestrian patterns.  The goal of the study would be to define the traffic needs of the ward, identify traffic problems based on data, develop solutions, and assemble a plan to implement those solutions in a phased approach over a period of time.

Build a North Hills Civic Association, where residents and business owners can meet regularly to discuss ongoing issues directly with their commissioner.

Mike will work to develop a local civic association consisting of local residents and business owners, with the goal of gathering information from those parties, identifying issues that affect both, and working with the township's Board of Commissioners to implement legislation to meet needs as they are identified.  The Civic Association would meet regularly, providing a forum for all to interact and communicate with the commissioner, and have their concerns heard by township leadership.

Address increasing crime levels in our ward.

Mike will work with Abington law enforcement officials to address rising crime levels in our neighborhoods, including petty crimes such as car break ins, tire slashings, and vandalism, as well as larger crimes such as armed robbery.  Addressing these issues may require a multi faceted solution that would include enhanced patrols, coordination and cooperation with neighboring township police departments, and possibly stationing officers in fire stations, similar to the approach that Cheltenham Township takes.
