Inn Proposed For Train Station

Posted: January 22, 1989

The Pocopson Planning Commission learned last week that the former Pocopson train station may become a bed-and-breakfast inn.

John Thomas presented informal plans for the building to the commission Wednesday. He needs approval of the Zoning Hearing Board, however, before he can proceed further.

Township ordinances allow bed-and-breakfasts only as a conditional use, said Planning Commission secretary Suzanne Williamson.

Commission members re-elected Hans P. Van Heyst to be chairman, and Williamson as secretary, during their reorganization meeting.


The building of a new post office for Sadsburyville came a step closer Wednesday night when the Sadsbury Planning Commission recommended approval of final plans for the facility, which is to be built on a 2.69-acre tract along Route 30 next to the Lincoln Crest Mobile Home Park.

The approval, however, is contingent on a favorable review from the Chester County Health Department, according to Planning Commission secretary Terry Franciscus.

The commission also recommended approval of final plans for the Stephen and Nguyen Thi Dam Devereux development of seven lots on an 11.7-acre tract along the West Caln border and Maple Avenue; approval is also contingent on a favorable review from the county health department.

The commission also changed its meeting date from the third Wednesday of the month to the third Monday, effective with the next meeting on Feb. 20 at 7:30 p.m.

The commission again chose George Dalmas to be chairman, Louis Battista to be vice chairman, and Franciscus as secretary.
