Whitestone Farms - Jay March dropped off a letter and remaining documents in order to finish up on the road dedication. Mr. Patten will draft the road deed of dedication for the August 21st meeting.
Bill Holloway is still working with the neighbors on the possible road dedication of Hillspring.
Ponds Edge Drive - Subdivision and Maintenance Agreement and deed of dedication was signed by the Board. Mr. Patten will file the papers and notify PennDot.
Mr. Patten stated that since the Crosslands plan involved new property, they would have
to file for a conditional use hearing before proceeding with the preliminary plan. Mr.
Houtmann suggested the applicant proceed with the plan outline so that they could have it
as a fair representation for the hearing.
Emergency Management Coordinator Reese Reynolds stated there would be a county meeting
with USGS personnel at the township building on August 25th at 9:30 a.m. to discuss the flooding
problems on Rt. 1. Chadds Ford Township has been notified.
Ridge at Chadds Ford - Jeff Berlin would like to dedicate the 3.9 acres of open space to the
township or Land Trust. The Board stated they are not interested in accepting the open space
therefore the Land Trust can. The Chester Water Authority should contact Mr. Berlin about
getting public water into the development. Since Mr. Berlin was not present, the Board did not
act on the preliminary plan but suggested he be present at the August 21st meeting. Ms. Howley
will ask Mr. Berlin for an extension letter or the plan will have to be denied.
