SCHUYLKILL TWP. A judge is still weighing whether the Phoenixville Area School District can seize a golf course by eminent domain, but that has not stopped the district from moving ahead with plans to build an elementary school there. Last week, the school board bought a house at an intersection that will need to be upgraded if the school is built, drawing criticism from the club's owners.
"It's putting the cart before the horse," said Bruce Campbell, whose family owns the Meadow Brook Golf Club on State Road in Schuylkill Township. "I don't know what's going to happen. Nobody does."
