Howland Farmers MarketThe Howland Farmers Market gives local and regional growers and food producers the opportunity to market their farm fresh items and value added products directly to consumers. Now in its eleventh year, the market is well recognized and enjoyed by the community. Once again, the Howland Farmers Market will take place at the Richard E. Orwig Park located at the intersection of East Market Street and Willow Drive NE in Howland Township, adjacent to Howland High School and across from Giant Eagle.

Our market is dedicated to providing a bounty of nutritious foods grown by local or regional growers with a selection of non-food items. Our market will strive to meet the economic needs of participating vendors, the health of the local community, and long term sustainability of the land by creating a successful local market.

This open-air market offers the community a unique, vibrant market experience that serves as the hub of community activity every Saturday beginning some time in June and continuing through October, whatever the weather. Check back on the website during the season for specific starting and ending dates!

Mosquito SprayingHowland Township sprays for mosquitoes during certain weeks in the summer months.  This helps us to keep the populations low and allows residents to enjoy the great outdoors and reduce the incidence of disease carried by these flying insects! It also benefits township recreation areas and businesses by making Howland Township a much more pleasant place to live, work, play and shop during mosquito season.

In case of rain, the spraying takes place the following evening. Resident are encouraged to close their windows, keep pets indoors and not to leave any food outdoors during the spraying.

The HPD School Resource Officer Program began with the intent to improve community relationships by participating with students in a non-confrontational setting and working with faculty and parents in the educational process. This is done by establishing rapport with the students and being available for them when they have questions or concerns. This is accomplished by establishing programs in concert with the school administration to address safety and security issues, educational programs, and by acting as a counselor/mediator for the parents as well as the students. Currently the School Resource Officer is assigned full time, 40 hours/week, to SRO duties.
