The Township currently encompasses 17.2 square miles and is home to over 18,000 people. South Whitehall, a planned community, is experiencing a steady growth in population.

Township Services

The Township employs approximately 120 employees. The Township’s main campus is the central headquarters for all services offered directly by the Township government. Those services include: police, road maintenance, snow and ice control, storm sewer maintenance, water and sanitary sewer system operation and maintenance, maintaining parks and recreational facilities, running recreation programs and events, leaf collection, a yard and garden waste center, recycling container and [large item] bulk sticker sales, inspection services, code enforcement services, planning services, and all other administrative services. The Township is proud to have its own police force, and has found that asset to also be considered as an important consideration to those looking to locate or relocate in the Lehigh Valley.
