Welcome to North Strabane Township, where family and community grow together. We are located in northern Washington County, approximately 20 miles southwest of Pittsburgh, and are home to approximately 13,500 residents. The Township is 27 square miles in area and is predominantly residential and agricultural in nature. Land use policies have been adopted to preserve the Township's rural character and optimize green and open spaces.
North Strabane Township provides all the amenities for a safe and comfortable living environment. Municipal services are second to none and include: police, fire, public works EMS, planning, trash and recycling collection, code enforcement, building inspection, library, and parks and recreation.
The Township is part of the Canon McMillan School District with an enrollment of 4,961 students. Home to local elementary, intermediate, and high schools, you can be assured your children are in a safe and learning environment, and receive a quality education. The District continues to invest in its grounds and facilities with ongoing renovations and the anticipated construction of a new elementary school. Due to increased residential development and population, the last decade has seen expenditures in excess of $ million to expand and renovate the high school and construct a new intermediate school. Additionally, there are seven universities that are located within a 25 mile radius of North Strabane. These include: University of Pittsburgh, Duquesne, Robert Morris, Carlow, California, Point Park, and Waynesburg.
Safety and well-being of residents is our foremost priority. Police, fire, and emergency medical personnel are available 24 hours to respond to any call or emergency you may have.
We have a large variety of interesting sites and activities that families can take advantage of. Take a trip to the Meadows Racetrack and Casino for a fun night out, or visit the Little Lake Theatre for an evening of live entertainment. The Spring House offers old-fashioned family dining, or picnic by the picturesque Canonsburg Lake. The day would not be complete without a trip to the Shoppes at Quail Acres concluding with dinner at the historic Victorian House located on Route 19.
Township taxes are low and have not increased in 18 years. Municipal services, however, have increased during that time to provide residents with convenient and affordable living. The majority of residents live within close proximity to major transportation corridors that provide direct access to Pittsburgh. Residents can enjoy the Pirates at PNC Park, the Steelers at Heinz Field, or the Penguins at the Consol Center - all within a commute time of less than 30 minutes.
North Strabane Township takes great pride in its heritage and character. The Board of Supervisors and staff are dedicated to the continued delivery of first class services and the enhancement of the community's overall quality of life. There is no better place to live and raise a family than North Strabane Township - Where Family and Community Grow Together.
