Rville Enhancement Committee

The Riegelsville Enhancement Committee is committed to enhancing and preserving the close-knit community of one of Bucks County’s best kept secrets, the borough of Riegelsville.

Comprised of both life-long Riegelsville residents and recent Borough citizens, the Committee works to maintain and promote Riegelsville’s historic charm, cultural allure, and strong sense of community through fundraisers, volunteerism, and community projects. The Enhancement Committee restores and maintains little gems around town such as the pocket garden near the post office, while also improving and publicizing the town’s accessibility to local state and county resources such as the towpath. Whether it’s noticing a springtime pansy planted down by the footbridge, parking your bike in a new bike rack, or enjoying a cup of coffee an a comfy bench, it’s likely that the Riegelsville Enhancement Committee helped get it there.

The Enhancement Committee meets the fourth Wednesday of each month and welcomes new members to join Elaine Albrecht, Joanne Walsh, Ed Bartosiewicz, Tom Stinnett, Bob and Nettie Rainey, and Maria Radus.

    I just wanted to say what a beautiful gesture it was to have luminaries along the roadways in Riegelsville this Christmas Eve. I am wondering though why there was no plan to remove them afterward. Some residents are not home during the holidays and I would hate to see all the paper bags litter the streets. Perhaps next season some thought could be given to decorating our beautiful suspension bridge, since it is the entrance to our town for many visitors.

    I asked a question about the possibility of rehabilitating the Wide Waters area of the canal in July 2013. Has there been any movement on this issue? It would definitely be an asset to the town

    Unfortunately when the canal was fixed due to the last flood, DCNR put a berm in that now only water lays so the Borough can not do anything with it at this time.

    Does that mean that the Wide Waters is now a pond or a swamp or on its way to filling in with vegetation??
