Planning Commission Report to #NewtownPA BOS: Corners at Newtown Text Amendment

At the September 13, 2023, Newtown Board of Supervisors (BOS) meeting, Peggy Driscoll, Chair of the Planning Commission, presented her synopsis of the Commission's concerns regarding the Corners at Newtown Redevelopment plan.

The plan includes a large apartment building with 120 apartments and amenities surrounding a parking garage. The building would be 45 feet in height and over 200 feet in length.

The Commission had some concerns about the proposed density in such close proximity to the Borough’s apartment complex called Steeple View and the impact on traffic and stormwater management.

Supervisor Mack asked about the possibility of obtaining an engineering analysis of the parking garage to determine if the ground can support the weight.

"These developers [are] coming in and what they're proposing is just ridiculous," said Ms. Driscoll at the end of her presentation.
