- Lower Macungie’s Public Safety Commission (PSC) addresses concerns about conditions that may impact the safety of township residents. While the PSC primarily addresses issues related to traffic, signage, and parking, the PSC is also interested in any safety issue within the township. Upon receiving an issue from a resident, the PSC in conjunction with township staff will investigate the problem and provide a feasible solution, if possible. Where appropriate, recommended solutions will be referred to the Board of Commissioners for approval. Citizens who have any safety related issues are encouraged to attend the PSC meeting held in the Township Building the 3rd Tuesday each month at 7pm. If the issue is specifically related to a parking, traffic or signage concern, citizens are requested to complete the Traffic Concern Form provided on the township web site (http://www.lowermac.com/docs/forms/TrafficConcernPolicy.pdf). Paper versions of the form are located in the Township Office and may be returned directly to the Township Office.
