Crebilly Farm Update 12/18/16

12/18/16

Dear Friends,

Last Thursday’s Planning Commission meeting was well attended in spite of the cold wind and busy time of year, but there were still empty seats in the room.  I thought the Chair of the Westtown Planning Commission, Dick Pomerantz, did a great job leading the meeting. The night included the following presentations by Westttown Township:

1) Sean Moir, of Western Heritage Mapping, presented troop movement during the Battle of the Brandywine on Crebilly Farm.

2) David Walter, of Westtown Township Historic Commission, gave a presentation of the existing buildings on Crebilly Farm and their historic value.

3) John Snook, of Brandywine Conservancy, presented recommendations to Toll with regards to preservation of the Battlefield, changing the design to include open space, discussion of the connector road and walking path and pushing the development closer to 202.
