Letter: Congratulations to Wonderland farms

The altered Wonderland Farms development on Oakland Road presented and proposed to the Chadds Ford Township Planning Commission March 9 focuses on many of the best interests of our Community.  Various designs have been suggested going back to 2014 for this residential development in the R-1, two-acre minimum zoned district.

My congratulations to Joe Grace's development company and to all our Planning Commission, engineer and solicitor folks for attending to the best outcomes for the new residential owners as well as our community as a whole. The Planned Residential Development allows homes on one acre with preserved open space for those residential families' use and care,

The current plans, reflecting input from and discussions during many commission meetings, now reduce the proposed number of dwelling units to truly reflect our "density neutrality" to R-1 zoning.  Much of the open space is a preservation of the important riparian and woodland classified areas documented by the Brandywine Conservancy's Environmental Management Center.

A special welcome and appreciation also goes to our new township citizens, Mr. and Mrs. Denigan, for looking to deed restrict their six acre parcel of the farmland bordering their home and barn properties.  This provides restriction to farmland use in perpetuity, primarily for horse grazing and riding, thus preserving this land from future home development as additional "privately owned open space."
