There is a tri-party agreement between Radnor Township/Radnor School District/Radnor Corporate Center as well as easement agreements with some adjacent neighbors that govern uses at Radnor Elementary School and Memorial Field site that have not been fully considered.
 
Furthermore, there is a specific restriction on the Township Satellite Parking Parcel and Helipad Parcel that says that it, "shall always be used for public park lands and public open space."

To my mind,  "Public use" and "public open space" wording would preclude any sort of exclusive or private use that is the central point of a lease to a private institution like AIS.

Commissioners Nagle and Schaffer chose not to stand up for the public, for open space, and for durable open space easements, choosing instead to serve the needs of the special interests.

No surprise there.
