College President Dr. Joseph Brosnan and Doylestown Township Board of Supervisors Chairman Barbara Lyons cut the ribbon for DelVal's new parking lot. 

Delaware Valley College partnered with the Township to create a new 99-space parking lot, near its softball field. On Tuesday, July 17, the college held a ribbon cutting ceremony to celebrate the new lot, which is accessible from Farm View Road.

The lot will provide extra parking near the SEPTA train stop on campus, as well as extra parking for athletic events, A-Day, concerts, conferences, and other community and college events.

“I think we have a very good relationship with our elected officials,” said College President Dr. Joseph S. Brosnan. “These projects prove we can work together in the best interest of the Township, our students and the local economy.”

The new lot is a small part of an ongoing $30 million construction and campus improvement project.

Board of Supervisors Chairman Barbara Lyons said she has seen DelVal grow and improve by tremendous leaps and bounds under Dr. Brosnan’s leadership.

“We’re all so very proud of you and this institution,” said Lyons.

The new lot includes lighting, efficient drainage, and can tolerate heavy vehicles.

Funding for the project came from Doylestown Township and the Delaware Valley College Operating Budget.
