Sandy Township was established as a second-class township in 1878, and it is governed by a five-member Board of Supervisors. It is home to a myriad of businesses, industrial parks, and an intermodal rail hub. A growing residential, commercial, and industrial community that encompasses 52 square miles. The 2020 census shows the total population of Sandy Township at 11,848, with 5,058 housing units; the largest municipality in Clearfield County. Within the borders of the township is a gated recreational subdivision known as Treasure Lake with a population of 3,861 and 2,034 total housing units.
The township contains a 12-acre recreational park which offers rental pavilions, a playground, volleyball court, walking paths, a groomed and fenced baseball/softball field, concession stand, and full running water bathrooms. The park is open seasonally from May through October each year. During the seasonally open times, the park is unlocked and available from dawn to dusk and is attended part time by a maintenance official.
In a constant effort to continue growing the economy of the area, Sandy Township has partnered with the City of DuBois and Falls Creek Borough to form the SDF Enterprise Zones within the state efforts of the Department of Economic and Community Development. Because of this state designation the SDF EZ group is afforded the ability to apply, on behalf of industrial and manufacturing businesses located within the EZs, for the competitive grant to loan program that they offer to provide businesses with very low interest loans for various projects. If you own a business currently in the Sandy Township, DuBois, or Falls Creek area or are looking to relocate to the area; check out the Economic Development department page for more information. We can help!
