What do I need for Moving into the Township?

Any person(s) moving into East Allen Township must obtain a Moving Permit.

What are the Reflective Emergency Response Address Signs and where can they be purchased?

East Allen passed an Ordinance #2007-08 requiring all properties with structures (residential or other) on them to place Reflective Emergency Response Number Signs. All properties are required to have a 6" x 18" green reflective background address sign with 4" white reflective numbers. The signs are to be placed on the same side of the street as the dwelling and will be visible approaching the property from both directions of travel. The intent of the Ordinance is to help first responders get to the scene of an emergency quicker. It also makes it easier for UPS, Fed-Ex and others to find your home when making deliveries or just visiting. It is important to mark your property as soon as possible if you haven't already done so. Signs can be purchased from Miller Ace Hardware on Rt. 329, or Interstate Signs Products.

Remember, this is how emergency responders find YOU in your time of need.
