Elizabeth Township Ice Rink

The ice rink annually set up in front of the Municipal Building has been taken down for the season. Due to a hole in the liner, the rink was temporarily closed until it was come to the conclusion that by the time the original liner was repaired or that the Township would obtain a new liner, the ice skating season would be nearly over. We apologize for the inconvenience and hope to have the ice skating rink up and running next winter season. Thank you for your patience.

Elizabeth Township is Recognized as a Certified Sustainable Municipality




Elizabeth Township recognized as certified sustainable municipality


Elizabeth, PA – December 16, 2016 Elizabeth Township announced today it is among a select group of high performing municipalities to become certified through the Sustainable Pennsylvania Community Certification program.  Elizabeth Township is recognized at the silver level of certification for meeting the program’s rigorous performance criteria which tracks 131 policies and practices that define a sustainable community.


The Sustainable Pennsylvania Community Certification, administered by the Pennsylvania Municipal League in partnership with Sustainable Pittsburgh, is designed for municipalities that are working to save money, conserve resources, and serve vibrant communities. Originally deployed in Southwestern Pennsylvania by Sustainable Pittsburgh, the certification has gone state-wide recognizing small, medium, and large municipalities across the Commonwealth.  The Pennsylvania Municipal League and Sustainable Pittsburgh applaud municipalities for their demonstrated commitment and sustainability performance.


In earning the silver certification, Elizabeth Township is acknowledged for its progress in addressing such areas as community design and land use, energy efficiency, health and wellness, mitigating blight, intergovernmental cooperation, recycling and waste reduction, fiscal controls, and internal management and operations.   Details regarding how Elizabeth Township is addressing these areas can be found on the certification program’s website: www.sustainablepacommunitycertification.org.


“We are delighted to see Elizabeth Township distinguished among local governments that are leading the way in applying sustainability to both their operations and management as well as within the community,” said Gail Markovitz, Director of Training, Pennsylvania Municipal League.


The Certified Community by the Sustainable Pennsylvania Community Certification is intended to bring recognition to municipalities that are applying the policy and practice of sustainability as their way of operating in order to advance community prosperity. It also serves as a mechanism for sharing best practices for creating a more sustainable Pennsylvania.  “Municipalities that earn the Sustainable Pennsylvania Community Certification are standouts in demonstrating adherence to best practices that elevate them as communities of choice to live, work, and play.  Commitment to continuous improvement is at the heart of sustainability and the certification program is a means to accelerate municipal performance,” said Court Gould, Executive Director, Sustainable Pittsburgh.
Details about Elizabeth Township’s certification performance can be found by linking to www.sustainablepacommunitycertification.org.
