The Mission of the Township

The mission of the Radnor Township government is to serve the best interests of all our residents by providing and maintaining a secure environment that enhances the quality of life for the individual and the community. We recognize the dignity of public service and are dedicated to the highest standards of integrity. We pledge to be a dynamic, responsive organization that continually strives to provide the most efficient and effective level of service for Radnor Township.

This mission makes Radnor Township a great place in which to live, work, and do business! In fact, in April 1996, Philadelphia magazine named Radnor Township as "The Best Place to Live in the Philadelphia Region."

This honor was the result of a Quality of Life Index created by the magazine to rank 165 towns in the Philadelphia Region in 16 different categories, including: 
  • Amount of protected open space
  • Availability of public transportation
  • Commitment to schools
  • Crime rate
  • Degree of recycling
  • Housing prices
  • Overall trendiness
  • Population diversity and density
  • Quality of recreation
  • Shopping facilities
