Movie Series Resumes with Heartwarming Tale

Brentwood Borough is pulling out all the stops to help our neighbors safely celebrate the 2021 spring and summer seasons. And while consistently warm temperatures haven't yet arrived, a series of pleasant evenings are expected for the upcoming weeks. Residents are invited to pull on a hoodie and bring a blanket to Brentwood Park on Friday, May 14th to witness the first in our series of free, family-friendly movies. The evening features a tale of man's best friend and her quest to reunite with a loving owner as we show 'A Dog's Way Home.' The event takes place on Field No. 3 and begins at dusk.

Streetscape Project Commences; Temporary Traffic Detours Necessary

Because of the assistance of a grant from the Commonwealth Financing Agency, Brentwood Borough will be engaging in a project that is concurrently designed to improve pedestrian accessibility and the overall aesthetic appeal of our central business district. Beginning on October 8th, the municipality's contractor will commence the completion of infrastructure upgrades such as the installation of decorative stamped crosswalks, the replacement of aging sidewalks, and the placement of traffic calming curb extensions. Due to the nature of this project, traffic will be temporarily prohibited on sections of Brownsville Road. The Borough is working closely with local business owners, school officials, first responders, and transit providers to ensure that that disruptions are kept to a minimum. For more information about the project timelines and the detour routes, please view the informational sheet here.
