Will this be the year that "the normal" returns to real estate?

Chester Valley Trail

Plans for a trail to rail path through Paoli
The first public meeting about a proposed paved path connecting the Chester Valley Trail to the Paoli Train Station took place in order to educate residents about the plan. Phase 2 of the Chester Valley Trail traversing Tredyffrin will open in a few months; however, a plan to link the trail to the Paoli train station through Cedar Hollow Road is still on the drawing board. The connector would enable R-5 rail commuters to cycle or walk to their offices at Vanguard and the Route 29 and Route 202-Swedesford Road corridors. Engineers intend to keep the path within the existing 50-foot right of way. Front lawns on private property technically would not be sacrificed, but grassy curbside strips, sidewalks and driveways could be impinged. A redefined plan will be presented to the public at a second meeting on September 30. The project timetable calls for a presentation to Tredyffrin officials on Dec. 2 and Willistown officials on December 9 before it goes to the Chester County Commissioners on December 12.

Springfiedl taxes increas...

Springfield passes budget
The Springfield School Board passed a budget after shaving down the increase to 1.98 percent. The newly approved tax rate of 29.300 mills equates to $4,279 for the median property value of $146,050 in Springfield and Morton. This is an increase of $83 over the present year. The board and administration had a “worst-case scenario” in February of 3.7 percent, but changes were made during and after the preliminary budget process to bring the increase below 2 percent.
