NORRISTOWN, PA / Message from Montgomery County, Pennsylvania

Welcome to the Montgomery County, PA website – your gateway to both a responsive, transparent and reform-minded government, and to one of the most diverse, historic, beautiful and economically-vibrant counties in America.

Montgomery County is the third largest county in Pennsylvania, the second wealthiest county in the Commonwealth and the 51st wealthiest in the United States. With just under 800,000 people living in its 487 square miles, Montgomery County is home to scores of major employers in pharmaceuticals, banking, manufacturing, healthcare and education.

The Montgomery County government and the services it provides to its residents is a reflection of the county itself – large, diversified, sophisticated and efficient. With a $409 million budget and close to 3,000 employees, Montgomery County provides a wide range of services serving social needs, business development, employee training, recreational opportunities, public safety, court services and roads and bridges.

The county’s newly formed Department of Commerce provides a one-stop opportunity for businesses looking to relocate to or expand in Montgomery County.

The county also provides and coordinates social services in innovative and efficient ways through several departments including the Office of Children and Youth, Developmental Disabilities, Aging and Adult Services, and Parkhouse, our skilled nursing facility and assisted care center. Beginning in 2013, many of these services will be delivered with the help of a ground-breaking approach in which so-called “navicates” help clients find the specific services they need for themselves or loved ones.

Montgomery County also maintains 75 miles of roads and 133 bridges; has developed over 60 miles of multi-use trails throughout the county; and cares for seven county parks and five historic sites.

Deer Hunt at the Norristown Farm Park

November 1st, 2013

The Montgomery County Division of Parks, Trails and Historic Sites will conduct a one day,
controlled, antlerless deer hunt at the Norristown Farm Park on Wednesday, January 22, 2014 between the hours of 7:00am and 3:00pm.

This year’s hunt is a continuation of a wildlife management program that began in 2005. The goal of the program was, and is, to contain a burgeoning deer population, thus allowing the park’s varied habitat to regenerate for the benefit of both the park’s resident and transient wildlife. In 2005 the park’s deer herd was estimated at 300-500 animals. Since the inception of the hunt nearly eight years ago, significant strides have been made toward reducing the number of deer/vehicle accidents on the roadways surrounding the park. The park’s varied ecosystems have begun to regenerate and damage to neighboring, private landscapes and agricultural commodities has decreased slightly. In addition, the program seeks to control the spread of Lyme disease-carrying ticks and limit the potential for animal starvation resulting from diminished and/or inadequate winter food supplies.

The herd is currently estimated to contain some 150-200 animals. While much improved, the number of deer on the property remains well above that which the land can adequately support.
