Arcadia Green Development Hearings, Part 1

Arcadia Green Development Hearings, Part 1

On November 8, 2017, the first session of hearings before the Newtown Board of Supervisors regarding the proposed so-called Arcadia Green development project took place. On October 11, 2017, there was public comment and the selection of "witnesses" who would testify at the hearings (for more on that, read "Newtown Crossing vs Arcadia: Truth to Power!").

I had to leave by 9:30 pm after more than an hour of testimony by Arcadia’s president Jason Duckworth who desribed the project in much detail (see photo below).

I was able to capture an image of thr proposed project (see below) from the multi-page document that Arcadia introduced into evidence.

Proposed Arcadia Green Developemnt

The main issue for many residents of Newtown Crossing is the impact of traffic. The plan calls for an egress road through High Street. Residents at the meeting were dismayed that Arcadia has yet to supply the Township with a traffic impact study, which is needed before an iinformed decision by the Board can be made.

I will continue to follow this issue. Meanwhile, see the piece below for some history regarding this proposed development.
