What’s Up in Upper Township
Community Heart and Soul Introduction
The Community Heart & Soul Program is a resident-driven process that engages the entire population of a town in identifying what
they love most about their community, what future they want for it, and how to achieve it. Developed and field-tested over a decade in partnership with over 90 small cities and towns across America, Community Heart & Soul is a proven process for engaging a community in shaping its future.

The UTBA is hosting a Discussion Roundtable for the Township of Upper on Tuesday, June 29, 2021, at 8:30 am, for a one hour Zoom meeting to discuss interest in the Community Heart and Soul (CHS) process for our Township.

UTBA’s Beautification Project is moving forward!
The Upper Township Committee approved our project at the 5.24.21 committee meeting and are enthusiastic about working with us to make Upper more inviting.
Phase 1 of the plan is to install 4 planters at each of the 3 town centers identified in the township’s Master Plan: Marmora, Seaville and Tuckahoe. The UTBA will supply the planters, and the township staff will maintain them.
We’re happy to partner with the Township to bring this beautification effort to our residents, visitors and shoppers. Stay tuned for more!
