In an effort to advance the newly adopted 2018 Comprehensive Plan, New Garden Township applied for and was awarded a grant through the DVRPC Transportation and Community Development Initiative to fund the engineering of a Streetscape and Transportation Improvement Plan in the Village of Toughkenamon. The Township advertised for interested residents and business owners to form a committee to guide the streetscape plan, identify ways to improve transportation and mobility in the Village, and enhance aesthetics, housing diversity, and investment.
The committee has worked together, over the past 10 months, towards the creation of a final plan that will enable a mixed-use business corridor along Newark Road, Baltimore Pike and Main Street and that is focused on sidewalks, ADA considerations, safe routes to public transportation, crosswalks, pedestrian amenities, landscaping, a park and overall beautification of the Village. The plan is intended to attract investors, visitors, and economic growth, as well as making the village safer and more livable for residents.
We invite you to join us and review the draft plans and provide your feedback. Prior to the next committee meeting there will be an Open House from 5:30pm to 6:30pm on December 9th, for residents to review recommendations and discuss concepts, one-on-one, with our consultants. If you are unable to attend, please find the same information on our website, www.newgarden.org and submit written comments to New Garden Township, 299 Starr Road, Landenberg, PA 19350 or firstname.lastname@example.org no later than December 18th.
Thank you for your interest and we look forward to seeing you on December 9th at 5:30pm.
