West Goshen officials will consider placing "impact fees" on new developments in the township.
At a Planning Commission meeting Wednesday, member Clarence Mercer suggested that the township consider such fees, to be assessed on a per-lot basis. The fee would help alleviate the impact of developments on the township, he said, and would be used to upgrade roads and for similar improvements.
Township engineer Kenneth Lawrence said he would gather information on such fees for the planners.
Also Wednesday, the Planning Commission was to consider a request by Chester County Hospital to allow operation of a day-care center. The issue was omitted from Wednesday's agenda through an "administrative oversight," said Paula Ott, attorney for the hospital, but it will be on the agenda Nov. 17.
