Draft Feasibility Study available for Review

Honey Brook Township hosted a meeting on Tuesday, October 27, 2015, at which the Brandywine Conservancy presented its Draft Feasibility Study Report.  Review the report by clicking here.  Printed copies of the report are available for review at the Honey Brook Borough Building, and at Honey Brook, West Nantmeal, East Brandywine, and Upper Uwchlan Townships’ offices.

The feasibility recommendations cover the abandoned railroad alignment between Dorlan’s Mill Road and Honey Brook Borough, broken into segments, and are based on physical characteristics, legal ownership, and landowner feedback from the length of the 13.5 mile corridor.

Interested parties are welcome to submit written comments to Beth Burnham, Senior Planner for Natural Resources for the Brandywine Conservancy, at P.O. Box 141, Chadds Ford, PA 19317 or at bburnam@brandywine.org.

 

The annual meeting of the Brandywine Creek Greenway partners will be held Thursday, October 20, from 5-8 pm at the Downingtown Country Club, 93 Country Club Drive.  There will be informal poster session updates and appetizers from 5:00-6:00; dinner buffet ($15) from 6:00-7:00, and an open forum of Greenway highlights and a feature presentation by the Chester County Historical Society starting at 7:00 pm.  Click here for more details. Contact Sheila Fleming of the Brandywine Conservancy at sfleming@brandywine.org by October 13 to RSVP.
