Westtown Woods

Under consideration by the Township is the Westtown Woods rezoning and subdivision and land development application. This project is proposed for a 14.041 acre parcel located at 1010 Wilmington Pike (UPI 67-4-9). Westtown Woods proposes the construction of fifteen (15) single-family dwellings, serviced by both public water and sewer, to be accessed from a new road connecting to Jacqueline Drive. In order to construct the desired number of dwellings, the applicant is also requesting the 3.73 acres of the property adjacent to Route 202 be rezoned from C-2/Highway Commercial District to R-2/Residential District as single-family dwellings are not permitted in the C-2 District.
