The Chairman called the meeting to order.

The first order of business was a discussion on the Charlestown Brae Subdivision. The issue here is primarily the landscaping: inadequate berm heights, tree density and tree size. Mr. Ziegler noted that other areas of the Zoning and Subdivision/Land Development Ordinances are being compromised. Mr. Kling moved that the Board reject the plan submitted 10-16-91 for the reasons stated above and that a public meeting be held re. this Subdivision. Mr. Martin amended the motion to include the same procedure for Charlestown Hunt. He then seconded the motion which carried unanimously.

The Final Plan for the Panilquin Subdivision was submitted September 16,1991. Mrs. Ewald stated that conditions of approval of the Preliminary Plan have not been met, namely outstanding fees which the Applicant had agreed to pay. Mr. Martin moved to notify Mr. Panizza by letter that it is the intent of the Board to give a denial on the Final Plan unless Mr. Panizza complies with the requirements. He is advised to attend the next meetings of the Planning Commission and the Board, of Supervisors. Mr. Kling seconded the motion, it carried unanimously.

Next on the agenda was a discussion on Heatherwood. The concern here is noncompliance in the paving of the road in this Subdivision. Mr. Martin stated for the record that he is opposed to using the taxpayers’ money in having any road paved on private property. The Board decided to send Mr. Samar a letter advising him that the Supervisors have asked for a meeting responsive to his request and have not heard from him. The Board intends to pursue other remedies if he is not forthcoming with a meeting date.

Mr. Martin read aloud Resolution #445-91 which states that Charlestown Township intends to file an application for the Chester County Heritage Park and Open Space Municipal Grant Program and John C. Martin, Jr. is authorized and directed to execute and file the appropriate forms. Mr. Kling moved to adopt Resolution #445-91, Mrs.Ewald seconded, it carried unanimously. Two proposals have been received to complete the scope and it was decided to let this out to bid. Mr. Kling moved to< commit $5,000 of Township funds for this project, Mr. Ewald seconded the motion, it carried unanimously.

It is anticipated that there will be a public meeting on Charlestown Hunt sometime in December.

Mr. Martin moved to approve the expenditure for the Annual Fall Convention of the Chester Co. Assn. of Township Officials, to be held Thursday, November 14, 1991 at the Tabas Hotel. Mrs. Ewald seconded the motion, it so carried.
