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 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.

Neafcy agreed.

“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.

Perhaps the board should speak with business owners instead of imposing their whims upon the people. Instead they sit in their chairs at these meetings and expect people to come to them. I know who I am not voting for next year. I read above "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." We all want it beautified in Limerick but we should be doing what Limerick people want, not what Mr. Neafcy would "like to see". Is Limerick Township limited to one person's opinion of what he would like? Did he check with the other businesses along the Ridge Pike Corridor?
