On behalf of the Board of Commissioners, welcome to the Neville Township website.
Neville Township is a Township of the first class, and a political subdivision of the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania. The Township’s mission is to provide for the health, safety and welfare of its citizens, property owners, business community and visitors.
The Township is located on a island in the Ohio River, in close proximity to the City of Pittsburgh. Our topography is unique for Western Pennsylvania – flat with riverfront access. The eastern portion of the Island is home to heavy industry and a business community that takes advantage of our ideal access to the Ohio River, Interstate 79 and other road and rail transportation.
The western side of Neville Island is home to a proud residential community with homes overlooking the Ohio River and a small business community. The Island also hosts Robert Morris University Island Sports Center, Paradise Island Bowling Lanes, Neville Island Roller Staking Rink and three public parks.

REMINDER: STREET SWEEPING RESUMES Wednesday, April 3, 2019 and continues through the End of November
The Township’s Street Sweeping Program will resume on April 3RD and continue through the end of November. The Township is divided into three zones, each with two (2) hour parking restrictions every Wednesday.
Zone 1: First Ward (First Street to Pershing Way) – 8 AM to 10 AM.
Zone 2: Second Ward (Hubert Street to Gibson Lane) – 10 AM to 12 Noon.
Zone 3: Third Ward (Cottage Avenue to Von Stein Lane) – 1 PM to 3 PM.
Residents are expected to move their vehicle EVERY WEDNESDAY. Please do not call the Township to ask if the street sweeper is operating. Last minute cancellations may occur due to equipment failures or other emergencies. The office may not have the latest information and you will not be excused from moving your vehicle or parking citations.
If you received a parking citation you may pay by mail, in person or via the Township’s 24-hour drop box. Failure to pay within 30 days will result in a police traffic citation that includes a larger fine and court costs.
The Township’s Street Sweeping Program is an essential service. Not only does it keep our community looking its best, but it prevents litter and debris from reaching our storm sewers and ultimately the river. Street Sweeping keeps water quality high and prevents flooding.
YOUR RIGHT TO KNOW WHAT IS IN YOUR DRINKING WATER: Neville Township values our customers and makes every effort to communicate our water quality. Each year we publish an Annual Drinking Water Quality Report. A copy of the 2018 report will be mailed to all customers with our June 30, 2019 utility bills and newsletters. The report is also posted at the Municipal Building. Any resident or business can request a FREE copy of the report by calling 412-264-1977.
If you wish to view the report on-line, please visit https://goh2onet.NTWD/ccr or click the following link:
