Jack McFadden was present to ask the Board their opinion on a possible change of
use for the Victorian House he owns at Rt. 1 and Brintons Bridge Road. He would like
to put a day spa in which would be owned and operated by Kelly Clark. It would be a
full service spa, hair, nails, skin and use the first and second floors. Hours of operation
would be Tuesday thru Saturday. This would require a conditional use hearing before
the supervisors. Bill Holloway stated the use meets the intent of the zoning but some
details might not. Three issues are trips generated, approval of L&I and water
usage. The Board advised them if they wish to proceed, file a request for a hearing
with the township.
The township received a copy of a letter from Chester Water Authority outline the
details for supplying public water to the Chadds Ford Elementary School. The school
district and township would be responsible for obtaining the right of way and the
township would restore the paving along Fairville Road.
