Concord supervisors OK church improvements

Concord Township supervisors on March 1 approved resolutions that give a go-ahead to church improvements in one part of the township and three new homes in another.

Valleypoint Church, on Bethel Road south of the Garnet Valley High School driveway, was given approval to expand its facilities in a series of stages that would result in new buildings, new parking and improved stormwater management.

According to Supervisors’ Chairman Dominic Pileggi, the church will also get public sewer, courtesy of the Garnet Valley School District. The district will build a new pump station to bring waste from the church to the district’s wastewater treatment plant.

Pastor Erik Koehler thanked the board for approving the plan, saying the expansion project will allow the church to better serve its congregation.

The board also approved a plan to build three new homes on Mattson Road. That plan calls for building the single-family homes at 157 Mattson Road, between Concord and Valleybrook roads, after subdividing the 5.3-acre lot and removing existing structures.
