Bristol Township’s ‘Fall Festival’ is Saturday, September 24 (11AM-4PM)

This year, Bristol Township will combine two popular events, Community Day and Harvest Festival into one bigger family-friendly event (Fall Festival) at the township’s municipal complex. The township is combining what had previously been two separate events into the all new ‘Fall Festival’ to avoid holding Harvest Festival (which had always been held in October) during the construction at the township’s municipal complex set to begin this fall. This free event will celebrate the arrival of autumn and will feature vendors, fun games and activities, and lots of great food. Thank you to our senior center staff and community volunteers for helping to organize this event.

Bristol Township’s Fall Clean-Up Day is October 22

Free disposal of your Household Junk, Recyclables, and Electronics on October 22 from 8:00am-2:00pm at the Township Municipal Complex (2501 Bath Road).  Perfect opportunity to dispose of large, bulky household items that won’t fit in your trash cart!   Proof of Bristol Township residency is required (such as a driver's license).

FEMA has Reclassified Properties in Several Large Areas of Bristol Township for Flood Insurance

FEMA has released new maps for public review.  The new maps – also known as digital Flood Insurance Rate Maps (FIRMs) –reflect current flood risks.  These new maps are available at the Bristol Township Administration Building for Bristol Township residents to review.


Residents shall investigate if their property in Bristol Township has been added to a higher flood risk zone, known as a Special Flood Hazard Area (SFHA).  If a property owner is located in the new higher-risk area and has a mortgage from a federally-regulated lender, then by federal law, the lender must require the owner to carry flood insurance at the time the flood maps become effective.  The required flood insurance is available through the National Flood Insurance Program (NFIP), a federally underwritten program provided by nearly 100 insurance companies and written through licensed insurance agents.  Lower-cost “Preferred Risk Policy” options are offered by the NFIP, for properties being mapped into higher-risk areas for the first time.  For more information on flood insurance, you may want to visit the National Flood Insurance Program’s website, www.floodsmart.gov.


If there has been an error in the reclassification of the effected property, the owner must file a protest or appeal with FEMA.  To learn more about the appeal process, see FEMA’s Criteria for Appeals of Flood Insurance Rate Maps Section 3.1 available through www.fema.gov
