Light agenda for Chadds Ford BoS

Chadds Ford Township is teaming with Concord in its examination of pedestrian access and connectivity around the intersection of Routes 1 and 202. Supervisors Wednesday night voted to support Concord’s application for a grant to study gaps in sidewalks

Township engineer Mike Schneider said the scope of the project is good and will look for areas that need to be connected. Concord Township voted to pursue the Transportation and Community Development Initiative grant during its meeting Tuesday night.

One action supervisors tabled Wednesday was action on a resolution calling for an end to gerrymandering in Pennsylvania.

During the board’s work session the last Wednesday in March, resident Dave Epstein presented the board with a request to support efforts to pass legislation that would lead to a change in the state Constitution on how U.S. congressional districts are drawn in Pennsylvania.

Supervisors decided to wait until the regular April meeting before voting. However, the board amended the resolution Epstein proposed and, under the advice of solicitor Mike Maddren, decided to move a vote on that until the April 25 work session. Board Chairman Frank Murphy said tabling the vote would give residents time to read and understand the revisions before commenting.
