 About East Whiteland Township

East Whiteland, located in the middle of the Chester Valley in east-central Chester County, is about 25 miles west of central Philadelphia.

The most prominent physical features of the Township are the ranges of hills along its northern and southern boundaries and the broad, gently rolling valley floor. The valley includes a complex pattern of streams, including Valley Creek - designated as an exceptional value watershed - and Little Valley Creek, and closely-associated narrow bands of steeply sloping land and woodlands.

With about 11 square miles of land area, the Township measures slightly more than four miles in an east-west direction and about 2.8 miles from north to south.

The municipality is traversed by several important highways including U.S. Route 202, U.S. Route 30 (Lincoln Highway or Lancaster Pike), PA Route 29 (Morehall Road), PA Route 401 (Conestoga Road) and PA Route 352 (Sproul Road).

The historic Main Line of the Pennsylvania Railroad, now owned by Amtrak, passes through the southern part of the Township. Although Amtrak and the Southeastern Pennsylvania Transportation Authority (SEPTA) use these tracks for its R-5 regional rail service, no stations lie on this part of the line.

 Demographic Information

2010 census population: 10,650.

The 2010 census population represents an increase of 1,317 persons (approx. 14%) from 2000.

With more than 20,000 persons employed in the municipality, the number of people who work in the Township is much greater than the resident population. The present ratio of employed persons to residents, more than two to one, is likely to continue, with several large office complexes slated for construction during the coming years.
