The Board of Supervisors of Pennsbury Township held a regular meeting on Monday, September 15, 2003. All members were present and the minutes approved as submitted. The roadmaster, code enforcement officer and township engineer were not present.

Township Manager Kathleen Howley reported the following:

Wrote a letter to PennDot requesting a speed limit study be conducted on rt. 926 as per Cartmel's request. Also, Kennett Township has offered their speed board to us for one week to be placed along 926 in this area. I have contacted our state representative's office asking them to keep us in mind for a grant for a speed board. Phil DeBaun will be notified when the board goes up and it was noted that the vegetation at the entrance of Cartmel should be cut back to improve sight distance.

Historical Commission wrote a letter to the Board advising them they gave the approval to the builder of 101 Hickory Hill Road to move ahead with renovations.

Courts at Longwood - Matt Houtmann said work has progressed and moving along. The one area still lacking is landscaping. The Board again stated that there will be no extensions and whatever is not completed by October 7th will be finished by the township and escrow money. As builts plans were dropped off at the building today.

Because of today's storm, the Brandywine did go over and Rt. 1 closed. We will be meeting with Chadds Ford Township to coordinate a plan for this closure.

Will Sappington was present and asked what is the status of the water problem on his property that Matt Houtmann was checking into. Ms. Howley will check with Matt. He also stated that his relationship with his neighbor has improved. Mr. Sappington offered his help to Dave Allen in case there are any downed trees with the upcoming storm.

Knoll Drainage Plan - Ms. Hawley stated that the curbing in the Knoll will continue this Fall with the Washington Lane and Constitution section. The procurement of an easement from property owners along Stirling Way will take until the Spring and Matt is working on this plan. Mr. Zeller requested the berm be placed on the road near 26 Constitution to divert water and was happy to know the curbing will get done this Fall. He also asked if there is a paper street that extends Washington Lane through to Sunny Ridge Lane. We will have to research this.

The Board of Supervisors will take no position in the zoning hearing board case for the Biederman's but want to make sure a replacement area is planned for the septic if a pool goes in. No position will be taken in the May case however, there should be no kitchen facilities or potential living quarters planned for this structure.

The Lyman property has requested to be included in the Ag Security District. There are 65 acres along Pocopson Road. Ms. Howley will proceed to follow Act 43 procedures to get this done.

Ms. Howley reported on a bus trip she took with the County Conservation District highlighting farms that practice best management practices. Both farms had plans in place to keep effluent from entering streams at the headwaters of the Brandywine.

Park Proposal - received today from Ann Yost, park consultant. This outlines the scope of work and costs to put together the construction documents for the development of the park.
