Ward 10 COMMISSIONER SCOTT ZELOV
I have the honor of serving as Lower Merion Commissioner in the 10th Ward, representing Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Gladwyne. I continue to enjoy public service, so I have decided to seek re-election.
While I’m proud of several accomplishments, there is still much to do. Most significantly, I am so pleased that 2021 marks a decade with NO increase in your Lower Merion Township taxes. At the same time, we continually improve the delivery of our high level of services while keeping our costs and debt under control.
Intersection improvements on Haverford Station Road and the 5 Points intersection in Bryn Mawr have reduced congestion while the new school zones on Montgomery Avenue slow traffic. The Bryn Mawr Village zoning served as a model for the new township-wide zoning code. Fighting billboards in Bryn Mawr is a never-ending battle which we must win. My efforts to start the farmer’s market, summer concerts, and Bryn Mawr Day are now permanent features of our community.
Some of my goals for another term as Commissioner include a new traffic signal at County Line and Montrose in Bryn Mawr, timely completion of the new Pennswood Road Bridge, supporting sustainability initiatives that make sense, ensuring the future of our volunteer fire service, and continuing efforts to calm traffic.
With business and non-profit leadership experience, I work effectively with my colleagues to continually improve Lower Merion Township. I’m a dedicated public servant who provides high level constituent services and frequent communications to Ward 10 residents.
I was elected to the Lower Merion Board of Commissioners in 2006 and I have been re-elected three times, most recently in 2017. I received a BA and MBA from Cornell University.
I’m a former member of the Montgomery County Planning Commission and serve ex-officio on the boards of the Bryn Mawr Film Institute and Ludington Library in Bryn Mawr. I’m a member of the ElderNet Community Advisory Council, and regularly participate in the 3 civic associations in Haverford, Bryn Mawr, and Gladwyne. I’m a regular supporter of the Bryn Mawr Twilight Concerts, Lower Merion Conservancy, Friends of the Cynwyd Heritage Trail and Bridlewild Trails Association. I’ve resided in Haverford since 1998 with my wife, Liz, and our three children.
