Chadds Ford in brief

Chadds Ford Township Board of Supervisors Wednesday night made relatively quick work of a light agenda for the July 6 meeting.

Header for BlastVice-Chair Noelle Barbone and Supervisor Frank Murphy voted to adopt an ordinance that repealed a previous zoning change. Supervisors’ Chair Samantha Reiner was not in attendance. The new ordinance rezoned three PBC-1 areas along Route 202 back to PBC.

That vote followed a hearing that consisted of little more than solicitor Mike Maddren stating the intent of the new ordinance. He added that the result would be that no car dealerships or service centers in those parcels. Neither supervisor made any comment, nor did any of the four residents in the audience.

Barbone and Murphy also voted to retain the services of an appraiser to look at the property at 1631 Baltimore, the All State office at the corner of Route 1 and Creek Road across from Hank’s Place. The property owner has not entered into a trail agreement and the township wants a trail easement as part of the Walkable Chadds Ford plan. The appraisal will cost the township 1,500.

The board appointed Sarah Sharp to the township’s Open Space Committee.
