Want to Help Plan the Bicentennial Events?

It’s hard to believe but Sharpsburg is approaching its 200th birthday in 2026! We are forming a Bicentennial Committee so if you are interested in helping to plan the events (or are just willing to help out after other people have planned the events), please fill out the signup form using this link or by scanning the QR code. We are hoping to have events throughout 2026 so we will need lots of help!

Now Hiring Crossing Guards

We need two more crossing guards to help keep the children safe as they wait for the school bus in the morning and as they get off the bus in the afternoon. Applicants must be able to get Act 33 clearances and be fingerprinted. Hours are 6am-8am and 2pm-4pm on school days. Contact Chief Stelitano at 412-781-0546 to apply or stop by the Borough office to get an application. You can also download one at the Borough website under Permits and Forms.

It’s no prank – street sweeping starts on April Fool’s Day

The 2024 Street Sweeping schedule is out and available for pickup in person at the borough building or for download. Street sweeping will start on Monday, April 1.

Please be sure to move your car so that the street sweeper can properly clean the streets. For every one car that is not moved, there are four parking spaces that can’t be cleaned since the machine is so large and needs to swing out around the parked car. Thank you for your help and cooperation!

Utility Work on S Main and Main St to Station Street to Begin 3/4/24

UPDATE 5/15/2024 PNG has moved to Main Street. They will continue to move eastward on Main Street from 6th Street to Station Street. The work is expected to take all summer. On S Main Street, PNG is to smooth out the temporary restoration but the final restoration will take place at the completion of the whole project (i.e., after they get all the way to Station Street).

 

2/28/2024 – People’s Natural Gas (PNG) will be installing a new gas main and service line beginning on Monday, March 4, 2024. They will begin near 1st Street on S Main and work their way toward Main Street before turning east on Main. The work on S Main is expected to take 4-6 weeks. Traffic will still be able to drive through as only one lane is scheduled for closure. The Borough does not yet have a good timeline for Main Street but this post will be updated once we know more, which will be toward the end of the work on S Main.

During the first week on S Main, progress will be slow as PNG does exploratory potholing to ensure that the pipe can be installed in a straight line once they start trenching. They are expecting to be working on the river side of S Main. It is likely that two excavators/backhoes will be staged on the street and that four parking spots will be used for the equipment. PennDOT gave PNG work times of 7am to 5pm.

Waste Management has been notified that the work will begin and they will make an effort to collect trash and recycling prior to when PNG begins work so if you live in that part of town, it is recommended that you have your trash out the night before or very early on Tuesdays. If your trash is missed, please call the Borough at 412-781-0546 and speak with someone from the administration office (option 1) to notify us. Per usual, you need to notify us by Wednesday so that we can get WM to send a recovery truck, which they do by Thursday.

The District Association Needs Your Help

The District Association (DA) is a community organization founded in 1928 for residents of Fox Chapel, O’Hara, Aspinwall, Blawnox, Sharpsburg, Indiana, and Harmar boroughs and townships. They initiate and implement various community projects that are not tax-supported but enhance and beautify the community.

To continue with these noble efforts, they rely on the support of residents. A family membership costs $35 per year. The funds raised through memberships, and the Fox Chapel Follies enable them to play an active role in member communities. Please visit theda.org to join or learn more about the District Association and its many projects. The DA expresses gratitude to those who already support this organization. They aspire to expand their membership to include all their friends and neighbors to continue their good work. The DA’s biggest fundraiser, the Fox Chapel Follies, will be held again in 2024! As a member of the District Association, you will be given top priority to purchase tickets. Now is the perfect time to join!
