INPUT WANTED ON DEVELOPMENT AND HISTORIC PRESERVATION
We do not have a category for "development" and "historic preservation" under "topics" just yet, but this is important:
We would like to open up a community discussion.
How do all of you out there feel about development and historic preservation?
Do you think we need more, or tweaking in specific areas? What do you like, don't like, are ambivilent about?
Tonight, at the regularily scheduled Board of Commissioners, several development related issues will be up for discussion, and none so heartbreaking as the scheduled "by right" development on North Buck Lane. Many of our members,township residents, and concerned citizens from other communities have been making a pilgrimage to Haverford to see why all the fuss about that block.
The feedback we have received, plus the result of our own internal discussions is this might be by right, but it is wrong for this small neighborhood. It is heartbreaking when small communities are torn assunder. If this project had to be built (and truly it doesn't), it could have been approached from a whole different angle.
As one neighbor, who is out of town this week has written:
It is for the neighborhoods such as this one, plus our own in Ardmore which are so similar, that we open up this discussion.
We are seeking citizen input. Register and post your comments here at www.saveardmorecoalition.org or e-mail us at
We have a Board of Commissioners now that care, but they aren't psychic. Any comments received shall be passed along to our township if you, the public, would like.
Alternately, we encourage you to write to the local papers:
