Berwyn Subdivision Approved

Posted: March 10, 1988

An application by South Leopard Road Associates for a nine-lot subdivision on the southwest corner of Newtown and South Leopard Roads in Berwyn was unanimously approved by the Easttown Board of Supervisors after David London, a representative for the developers, agreed to add restrictions to the deeds.

The deeds would disallow any owner of the homes - to be priced between $750,000 and $1 million - to ask for a private driveway at a later date. The plan currently requires three homeowners to share a driveway entrance. The second requirement would prohibit the largest piece of the property, the so- called Manor Home, situated on four acres, from being subdivided in the future.

Both restrictions were imposed as a result of concerns raised by Supervisor Anson Taylor.

In addition, the south side of Leopard Road will be widened to facilitate traffic. The trees in the area and traffic volume on the road will not be affected, according to township officials. The project is subject to PennDOT approval.

Supervisors also approved a two-lot subdivision proposed by Rick Belber at Arlington Road in Devon and a three-lot subdivision by Alliance Properties for land on the northeast corner of Sugartown and Dorset Roads in Devon.

Cheers rang out from the audience when the supervisors approved an ordinance lowering the speed limit for the length of South Fairfield Road from 35 miles an hour to 30, and authorized a stop sign on South Fairfield at Exeter Road. The township also will apply to PennDoT for a flashing signal there.

Gene Williams, township manager, announced that the township has received a $50,000 federal subsidy to help weatherize and rehabilitate homes in Easttown. The Redevelopment Authority of Chester County will distribute the funds. Receipt of money is restricted to people in certain income brackets. Additional information is available from Mabel Brown at the Redevelopement Authority of Chester County, 431-6779.

"I'm concerned that we make known that the money is available, because it can really help the elderly," said board Chairman Samuel Pilotti.
