Updated plans - March 17, 2017
The proposal is making its way through the Township's land development review process. As of January 20, 2017, the schedule is:
Feb. 16 - Decision from the Board of Supervisors on the Conditional Use Application.
Conditional use approval granted - Press Release
Feb. 22 - Subject to review letters from the Township's staff and consultants, consideration by the Lower Providence Township Planning Commission of the preliminary land development plans. The Planning Commission is an advisory board and it may make a recommendation to forward on to the Board of Supervisors for consideration. As a result of this presentation, no recommendation was put forth by the Commission. The applicant gathered input, will revise plans for review and most likely appear before the Commission at its April 26 meeting.
Feb. 23 - Hearing before the Lower Providence Township Zoning Hearing Board to consider the applicant's variance from §143-240 to allow construction of retaining walls in areas of steep slopes and from §86-401 to permit placement of fill within any designated floodway. The Board heard testimony and expect to issue a verbal decision at the March 23 meeting.

If the applicant receives the above required approvals and recommendations, the preliminary plan will proceed to the Board of Supervisors as the elected officials of the Township. This involves a minimum of two meetings with a presentation and then a later decision. If approved, the applicant will revise their plans to address any conditions and will resubmit for staff and consultant review. Plans would then be scheduled for consideration by the Township Planning Commission and then final approval by the Board of Supervisors.
Once the applicant has received their approval from the Township and from the outside agencies, plans will be recorded with the County Recorder of Deeds and agreements for public improvements executed. Providence Place will then apply for building and construction permits.
