Limerick Township Honors Eagle Scout, More on Ridge Pike Development
A local teen completed a playground project and received homage at Tuesday's Board of Supervisors meeting. The board also revisited discussions on Ridge Pike.
Justin Gould, a local Spring-Ford student, attained the rank of Eagle Scout and was honored by the Limerick Township Board of Supervisors at Tuesday’s meeting. Gould is a member of Boy Scout Troop 10, which meets at St. James United Church of Christ on S. Limerick Road.
His project involved the refurbishing of a playground area at St. James Lutheran Church. Under Gould’s direction, the grass area was replanted, wood chips were laid down and the equipment was cleaned up.
Supervisor Elaine DeWan also congratulated Gould on attaining membership in the Order of the Arrow. The Order of the Arrow is one of the highest honors awarded in scouting.
Peter Simone of Simone Collins Landscape Architecture has submitted two proposals for a new zoning ordinance and new landscape and architecture guidelines for the Ridge Pike Corridor district.
Supervisor Thomas Neafcy said he would like to see the Ridge Pike area made more attractive, to go along with the township’s ongoing beautification efforts. He would like to see some “boulevard-type streetscaping” along the Ridge Pike Corridor. Neafcy also suggested the proposals go back to the landscape committee for review and suggestions.
“We should have a meeting of the minds, between the board, planning committee, streetscape committee,” said supervisor Ken Sperring.
“The committee is very experienced, they are former board members, planning commission members. That experience is helpful,” Neafcy said.
The rest of the meeting consisted of subdivision and land development extensions, approval of a bid for a public works project and the passing of a resolution to dedicate Zara Drive to the township.
