Mr. Anderson reported that Pennoni Assoc. did a study for the township regarding the
proposed entrance to the subdivision. Pennoni submitted a letter recommending an

the sight distance better than a proposed location further down Rt. 926. Turn lanes are
still an open issue and a traffic study should address this. The Board also suggested a
traffic calming device at this intersection. Mr. Sellers, supervisor in Pocopson
