Shady Brook Farm Selling Portion Of Property - Looks Like More Multistory Housing and Year Round Traffic Coming! | Newtown News of Interest | Scoop.it

The popular farm —known for its annual holiday light show among other events —will be reducing its size as the Fleming family prepares to turn over the property at 931 Stony Hill Rd. to a fifth generation.

 

The Fleming siblings who jointly own Shady Brook Farm plan to sell about 80 acres of the 130-acre property to a partnership including DeLuca Homes, the Bucks County Courier Times reported.

 

The property along the Newtown Bypass is near where DeLuca Homes is developing Prickett Preserve, which includes Bucks County's second Wegmans store.

 

johnmacknewtown's insight:

 

I would say the farm is going to get a LOT smaller and traffic MUCH WORSE! Residents expressed similar concerns at my 13 November 2023 Meet Mack Monday (MMM) Zoom meeting. View the video: https://youtu.be/Ke7m-GSK7HQ

 

At that MMM meeting, it was noted that a portion of the farm is located in Newtown, which I was able to verify by examining the Bucks County Planning Commission Subdivision Map.

 

It is not known if the Newtown parcel is up for sale.
