The Souderton Hometown Heroes Banner Program is a living tribute created for the community to recognize and honor our Veterans who are serving or are veterans who have served our country in the United States Armed Forces.
To qualify, a Veteran, living or deceased, must have had a connection to Souderton (attended local schools, relative, friend, etc…) at some point in his or her life, also those honored on War Memorials and Veterans recommended by the local VFW and American Legion Posts.
The Banner will be 24” x 48” heavy vinyl, printed the same on both sides, and will display the service person’s photograph, include their full name, branch of the Military and the era of service (WWI, WWII, Vietnam, etc.) Banners will be displayed from May through Veterans Day in November in observance of all Military Branch birthdays. Banners will be removed and stored until the same period in the following year at which time they will be re displayed.
Each Banner requires the Hometown Hero Form to be filled out, a photograph of the Hero in uniform and a payment of $130.00 for each banner, payable to: Hometown Heroes. Click here to download form. Please note the picture will not be returned.
For further information please contact Anne Henning Scheuring, 225 South Line Street, Lansdale, PA. 19446 or at E-Mail address: email@example.com or call: (215) 855-1743

Souderton Borough Council has considered and enacted over seven hundred ordinances governing a vast variety of matters from designating streets, traffic laws, creating a police department, setting annual budgets and tax rates, building codes, property maintenance, use of public parks and public spaces to name only a few. Most of the borough ordinances are codified and maintained in specific categories for easy reference by a municipal consulting firm known as General Code. This firm has completed the update to our codification of ordinances to make this entire library of ordinances available online. Please Click Here to view the library of ordinances.
One major component of legislation is the Souderton Borough Zoning Ordinance, which establishes zoning districts throughout the Borough and permitted uses and other regulations governing the use of property. The Zoning Map and Zoning Ordinance is appended to this article for viewing or downloading.
The division and development of property within the Borough is governed by the provisions of the Souderton Borough Subdivision and Land Development Ordinance, most commonly referred to as SALDO. This ordinance is a comprehensive document governing procedures to create subdivisions of property and provides regulations for the development of property covering all aspects from utility construction, street construction, landscaping, stormwater management and even architectural standards in certain zoning districts. A copy of the SALDO regulations is also appended to this article.
