WELCOME TO BRIGHTON TOWNSHIP!

Brighton Township is one of the Western Pennsylvania region’s most affluent, beautiful and serene communities that is within minutes of the Borough of Beaver, a Pittsburgh Magazine “top 10 stable great neighborhood” and the Beaver Area School District, a Pittsburgh Business Times “top 10 percent regional district.” The township features immediate access to local recreation and medical center, Pittsburgh attractions, interstate highways, an international airport and excellent shopping. With significantly lower property taxes, the township has grown steadily during the past five years as a safe, vibrant bedroom community in which to raise a family. Our Web Site provides a continuing flow of meaningful information to our residents and encourages increased communication between the Township and the public that we serve.

 

 

GOVERNANCE

Founded in 1816, Brighton Township is a residential community blending a rural setting with a progressive attitude. A Township of the Second Class, it is governed by a board of three elected supervisors, each serving a six year term.

 

The Board of Supervisors appoints a Township Manager who is charged with the day to day operations and fiscal management of the Township. The Board meets the second Monday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Municipal Building at 1300 Brighton Road. Any necessary change in this schedule is advertised in the local legal ads, and special meetings are advertised as well. All meetings of the Board are open to the public with an opportunity at each meeting for public comment. Further, any individual is encouraged to contact the Township offices with concerns or comments. Residents are encouraged to present their views on Township matters on any of the means that are available, including letters, e-mail, telephone and in person.
