In addition to the Hookstown Fairgrounds, Greene Township is also home to the South Side Area School District complex and many small businesses. Our main commercial corridor is the intersection of U.S. Route 30 with State Route 168.
The Township’s largest employer is the School District, while many residents are employed at such nearby locations as FirstEnergy’s Beaver Valley Nuclear and Bruce Mansfield Power Plants and National Gypsum, all in adjacent Shippingport Borough. Other residents find employment at the Beaver Medical Center, Beaver Valley and Robinson Town Centre Malls, and Pittsburgh International Airport, all within 30 minutes of the Township.
Our Township has created Mill Creek Community Park, located at 1128 State Route 168, Hookstown. With the help of numerous grants and many willing volunteers, we have 3 ballfields, 2 picnic pavilions, a playground, horseshoe court, walking track, Veterans’ Monument and concession stand. Open Space is preserved across busy Route 168 on another Township property, purchased with the assistance of a DCNR grant. A walking/cross-country skiing trail with unique features has been constructed as an Eagle Scout project.
The “neighbor-helping-neighbor” spirit is still alive and well in Southwestern Beaver County. Greene Township partners with the adjacent Townships of Hanover, Raccoon, Potter and Independence in performing road maintenance projects and in a joint recycling program.
The Townships have been awarded the Governor’s Award for Excellence in Local Government Service for our unique partnership of working on our roads together and purchasing jointly-owned specialty equipment that none of the Townships could afford on our own. When needed, our Road Department employees also assist each other with park improvement projects. We are frequently asked by other Townships across the state to explain our partnership, and have been featured in state-wide publications.
