Nearly three decades of service Lower Merion Township recognizes Robert D. Fox

A. Stevens Krug, West Chester architect Climate Change Advisory Committee names Chair

the Zoning Hearing Board in 2005. He served as chair for all three of these boards, and also served on the Lower Merion Conservancy and was chair of it for five years. He put his service in perspective stating, “I started with Lower Merion Township when my youngest child was two years old and now she is a mother of two.” Fox, a lifelong resident of Lower Merion, gave a heartfelt speech to those in attendance, thanking the Township for giving him one of his great- est gifts, his wife of 38 years Nancy, whom he met at Lower Merion High School. He also praised the Lower Merion public school system, one that shaped his lifelong passion for service and learning. The motto by which he has lived his life was once in front of his alma mater, Ardmore Junior High School, but now marks the entrance of Lower Merion High School, “Enter to Learn. Go Forth to Serve.” In other news, Fox was ap- pointed to serve on the SEPTA board. Commissioner Chair- man Josh Shapiro and new Commissioner Valerie Ar- koosh voted to appoint Fox to hold down one of Montgomery County’s two board seats for the transportation authority for the next five years. Chairman Shapiro said, “Robb is exceptionally quali- fied to join the SEPTA Board and his wealth of experience and commitment to public service will make him a strong voice on this critically im- portant board. Montgomery County and the region will no doubt be better off thanks to the unique contributions that Robb is poised to make.” Fox added, “I am honored to be selected and excited to serve on SEPTA’s Board. SEPTA is so critical to the success of our regional economy.” Fox, a lifelong resident of Lower Merion, has spent nearly 30 years serving the Township. He was appointed to the Environmental Ad- visory Council in 1987, to the Planning Commission in 1998, and finally to the Zon- ing Hearing Board in 2005. He served as chair for all three of these boards, and also served on the Lower Merion Conservancy and was chair of it for five years. He recently stepped down from the Zoning Hearing Board but will con- tinue to serve his community through his SEPTA board appointment. n
