Pocopson to review Barnard House study

Pocopson Township Supervisors will provide an update Monday on the Barnard House feasibility study proposal.

The supervisors meet at 7:30 p.m.

Proposals to look at possible uses for the Barnard House and the township’s Denton Hollow facility were received by Feb. 28, and the township had been reviewing them in March.

There were 19 proposals in total, according to supervisors’ Vice Chairman Elaine DiMonte.

Once supervisors, Pocopson’s treasurer, secretary and public works director review the proposals, further action will be taken at a public meeting.

Chester County transferred the Barnard House property, including 68 acres and historic Eusebius Barnard House, to the township in 2008.

Also on the supervisors’ agenda on Monday is an authorization to update the township’s Act 537 sewage facilities plan, and a request to release the escrow for Ducklings Early Learning Center, which is building a new location at the entrance to Riverside at Chadds Ford.
