For the 10th consecutive year, Cranberry Township has been named a Banner Community by Allegheny County and the Allegheny League of Municipalities.
Being recognized as a Banner Community indicates a commitment to professional development, prudent fiscal management, transparency, accountability, and proactive communications to engage community stakeholders.
Board of Supervisors Chairman Dick Hadley said receiving the award for the 10th time is confirmation that Cranberry Township continues to move forward in the right direction.
“Our elected officials and staff have gone above and beyond to ensure we continue to offer the highest quality service possible,” he said. “Being named a Banner Community shows our continued commitment to making Cranberry a great place to live, work and play. Providing such quality services is part of how we do business.”
Hadley also recognized that Cranberry must stay motivated to earn the distinction again in 2023.
“We will continue to stick to the plan and make the best decisions we can for the future of Cranberry Township,” he said.
Cranberry is one of 16 municipalities to have been part of the Banner Community Program since its inception in 2013.
The Allegheny League of Municipalities, a nonprofit organization created in the early 1960s to coordinate the needs of the area’s local elected officials. In 1974, it was officially established as the Allegheny League of Municipalities to coordinate, advocate, and educate the hundreds of elected officials within its member municipalities in Allegheny County and southwestern Pennsylvania. The organization educates elected officials, delivers essential resources, and advocates for sound policy and legislation.
