About the Township
Baldwin Township is a small community nestled in the South Hills of Pittsburgh and consists of one square mile of land with 6 miles of road, 894 homes, and a thriving business district.
The Township is governed by a five member Board of Commissioners, who are vested with executive and legislative powers to establish and enforce regulations in order to maintain the health, safety and welfare of township residents. The administrative office consists of one full-time Manager/Secretary. The Township Manager is responsible for the day-to-day operation of all Township business. The Township Solicitor is appointed annually by the Board of Commissioners, and handles all legal problems and services. The Township Engineer is also appointed annually by the Board of Commissioners, and reviews design infrastructure improvements, roads, storm and sanitary sewers.
The Baldwin Township Police Department is located in the Municipal Building and is made up of a Chief of Police, four additional full-time Police Officers and one part-time Police Officer. They provide 24-hours-a-day, 7-days-a-week police protection to our community and residents.
The residents of Baldwin Township are served by the Castle Shannon Volunteer Fire Department (CSVFD). They provide us with front-line fire fighting service as well as fire and safety inspections, and commercial occupancy inspections. They are also active participants in Baldwin Township community events.
