The HLRA has a new Executive Director
Mike Shinton, Horsham Township’s Director of Codes and Community Planning, was appointed as the HLRA Executive Director at the Board’s July 19, 2023 meeting. Mike will add the responsibility of managing the day-to-day redevelopment of the former Naval Air Station – Joint Reserve Base, Willow Grove, PA to his existing township duties.
“The redevelopment of the base is vitally important to the future of Horsham Township and it makes total sense to have one person leading the effort” says W. William Whiteside, Chairman of the HLRA Board and Vice President of Horsham Township Council. “Mike’s background and leadership skills match up well with all of the tasks ahead of us as the Navy continues its environmental investigations and clean-up actions necessary prior to property transfer”, continued Whiteside.
