Milk-center Plans Approved

Posted: August 24, 1989

A small milk-distribution center in the Matlack Industrial Park was approved unanimously this week by the West Goshen Board of Supervisors.

Rosenberger's Dairies Inc. plans to move into the 4,700-square-foot office and warehouse from its plant at 700 S. Bradford Ave. in East Bradford Township. Each night, one tractor-trailer will drop off the milk from the company's Hatfield plant; route drivers will pick up the milk early in the morning.

The new office will be built on a 2-acre lot at 209 Carter Drive, the last lot to be developed in the industrial park. There will not be a retail store at the site.

Plans have not been completed for the East Bradford site that the dairy will vacate.

In other business Tuesday, the board approved but did not sign the blueprint for a plan to build Greenhill Farms, 43 single-family houses on 28 acres at the northeast corner of Greenhill and Ashbridge Roads. An entrance would link the development to each road, and Ashbridge Road would be widened along the site.

The supervisors did not sign the plan because the escrow agreement with the developer, John Benson Associates of West Chester, was incomplete; they wanted Benson to put enough money in escrow to build a street connecting the site to a tree farm on its northern boundary, if the tree farm were developed.

Also, the board approved an 11-house development, Snyder Place, on 8 acres south of Snyder Avenue and east of South High Street. Snyder Avenue will be widened by the developer, Kolme Corp. of Media, and East Rhodes Avenue, which now ends in a cul-de-sac, will be connected to Snyder Avenue.
