About Middletown Township

Middletown is in the heart of Lower Bucks, the most heavily urbanized portion of the County. The Township is situated approximately midway between Philadelphia to the west and Trenton to the east. Middletown is adjacent to the Pennsylvania Turnpike, about 1.5 miles from Exit 351 (old Exit 28) and 2 miles from Exit 358 (old Exit 29). The Township is crossed by major traffic routes, including 1-95, U.S. 1, and PA Route 413, among others. These roads are convenient links to locations across the Delaware Valley and lead directly to the interstate highway system. Eleven municipalities border Middletown. These include the townships of Newtown, Lower Makefield, Falls, Bristol, Bensalem, Lower Southampton and Northampton, and the four boroughs of Langhorne, Langhorne Manor, Penndel and Hulmeville.

Middletown was among the fastest growing post-war suburbs in the Philadelphia area during the 1950's. The Township is a progressive community in a highly developed metropolitan region. Pressures for both residential and nonresidential growth continue to be strong forces for change in Middletown and much of the surrounding area. These conditions underscore the need for ongoing comprehensive planning in the Township.

Middletown is a unique and diverse community. It contains 19.4 square miles and is the third most populous of Bucks County's 54 municipalities. A significant amount of Middletown Township has been developed. The southern portion of the Township contains more densely populated residential subdivisions, including Levittown which was established during the 1950's. The central portion contains large areas devoted to retail and other commercial development. Western Middletown is largely an older residential area that is somewhat detached from the northern and southern sections because the Boroughs of Langhorne, Langhorne Manor, Penndel and Hulmeville are located "within" the municipal limits of the Township. The northern area contains the most recent residential development that not only includes houses on larger lots, but also neighborhoods dedicated to those residents aged 55 and over.

Particular care is being taken to conserve the natural environment and open space areas throughout the Township; from storm water management, the naturalization of retention basins, to the re-introduction of native plants throughout the parks and other open areas. Striking a balance between the Township's overall growth and preservation needs is the central theme of this comprehensive plan.
