A developer is seeking the East Whiteland Board of Supervisors' approval for a zoning change to build 36-unit townhouses off Sugartown Road. The proposed development would encompass 3.6 acres in East Whiteland and 0.8 acres in Malvern.
Developer John Mullen asked for the township planning commission's recommendation Monday night, but the commission deferred action until it received comments from Malvern officials. He takes his request to the supervisors at 8 tonight.
The triangular property juts up into East Whiteland from Malvern. Mullen is asking the Board of Supervisors to change the zoning of the northern section of the tract, in East Whiteland, to match the zoning of surrounding tracts to the south, in Malvern. The Malvern zoning calls for 12,000-square- foot lots, and the East Whiteland zoning requires lots of 22,000 square feet. Mullen's project calls for 12,000-square-foot lots.
