CFBA learns about Pennsbury

Chadds Ford Business Association members got a brief glimpse into what’s happening in Pennsbury Township during the group’s lunch meeting held in Pennsbury on Nov. 4.

Pennsbury Township Supervisors’ Chairman Aaron McIntyre addresses members of the Chadds Ford Business Association, bringing them up to date on what’s happening in the township.

Supervisors’ Chairman Aaron McIntyre, who earned re-election Tuesday when he ran uncontested, told the business crowd that one of the township’s priorities is to keep Route 1 clean and safe for residents and businesses alike. He added that the township is committed to maintaining the historic character of Pennsbury. To that end, he said, there are plans to restore the Hope House to be “period specific” as a structure from the late 18th and early 19th centuries.

McIntyre added that the township hasn’t raised taxes in years and hopes to maintain that. To that end, he said, the township joined with five other municipalities to create the Kennett Area Fire and EMS Commission to keep prices down for fire and ambulance services. He called it a regional approach to distribute equipment more efficiently.

Fellow supervisor Wendell Fenton added that “every fire department [in the region] doesn’t need every piece of equipment.”

The next CFBA meeting is scheduled for noon on Dec. 2 at Antica Restaurant I Chadds Ford Township.
