Bits & Pieces April 7

• Jonathan Kirk, of Brookhaven, entertains at Hank’s Place on April 3. His opening number was “Take Me Out to the Ballgame” in honor of the start of baseball season.

• Changes to the Chadds Ford Township sign ordinance that the township has been working on for the last several months may finally get to a vote. Solicitor Hugh Donaghue and engineer Joe Mastronardo will be putting in some final language changes. The board decided during its April 6 meeting to have the measure re-advertized for a hearing. Donaghue said the hearing would likely be in June.
The board agreed to end $250,000 to the township Sewer Authority. Supervisors’ Chairman Garry Paul said the authority has money tied up in an interest bearing account that draws 4 percent interest. It would lose that benefit if it withdrew the money. Paul said the authority would repay the loan to the township with interest.

    I looked at the Conservancy’s web site and at the map of the greenway. I think that the public needs to know that some of the cross hatched lands in the southern part of the corridor noted in the map legend as Lands owned by Land Trusts are owned by the Brandywine Conservancy are not protected lands. Particularly those Conservancy parcels located in Pennsbury Township are not restricted by easements. Such lands could be sold at any time or developed by the Conservancy. In the past, the Conservance has sold or developed lands that they owned raise cash for their museum. Just because the Conservancy owns land it is not protected unless there is a conservation easement is placed on it. The Conservancy should do as they tell others to do and put all their lands under easement or make note that ome of their lands are not protected lands so the public knows that status of those lands.
