"But Lower Merion does this to Lower Merion. Historic Preservation is reactive not proactive. La Ronda has been in peril and in play many times over the past 30 + years. . ..
We need changes to our historic preservation ordinances and policies not just locally but statewide and nationwide.
We need changes to the Municipalities Planning Code and the ability to have a temporary moratorium on development in communities when it is needed.
And oh yes, Lower Merion needs a Comprehensive Plan update more than every 30 years (yes this year is the 30th anniversary of Lower Merion's comnprehensive plan - shall we throw it a party?). Actually, municipalities in Pennsylvania are supposed to upday comprehensive plans every 10 years, right?"
Later but also recently, Carla posted a comment in another La Ronda blog thread (as I recall) suggesting that work has started on updating the LMT Comprehensive Plan, but it's happening out of public sight.
Carla, please correct if the above is not what you said somewhere here at SAC recently. If you did, any more news on what's going on?
