Worcester Township Supervisors: Reject the Proposed Center Point Village Ordinance on December 12th
- Worcester Pennsylvania Board of Supervisors
- United States of America
—> Preserve Our Rural, Historic Town Center at Valley Forge Road and Skippack Pike
Don't bring congestion and mega development to the center of Worcester!
As the historical town center of our community, it is critical that future development at the intersection of Valley Forge Road & Skippack Pike (Center Point), be done in a manner consistent with our rural character and heritage. A proposed zoning Ordinance coming before the Supervisors on December 12th, would increase development density allowances for the entirety of Center Point, and do away with the Township’s long held vision of abundant open space, historic preservation, and village like commercial-residential buildings, around the intersection of Skippack Pike and Valley Forge Road.
This Ordinance will open the door to a mega CVS and 300 townhomes, taking over open space and worsening traffic. It is not good for our township.
The Supervisors should go back to the table, working with the township Planning Commission and residents to select zoning standards for Center Point that:
-Preserve open space in the Township
-Avoid excessive housing density (approximately 300 new homes)
-Prevent increased traffic congestion
-Sustain a rural village ambience
-Set architectural standards compatible with our historic village
-Provide for trails and scenic view-scapes
We the undersigned residents and neighbors of Worcester Township call on the Worcester Board of Supervisors to reject the proposed Center Point Village Ordinance at the December 12th, 2018 Advertised Public Hearing
