Deer Run-CVT Path: No Decision Until Leaves Fall

The board had promised to hold off until September, but surveyors investigating

The East Whiteland Board of Supervisors said at its Sept. 12 meeting that there would likely not be any news on a proposed connector path between Deer Run Lane and Chester Valley Trail until December.

"We have conferred with the engineers who were to survey the property and were told they cannot survey it properly until the leaves come off the trees, which will not be until late October, early November," board chairperson Virginia McMichael said at the Sept. 12 meeting.

The supervisors had previously said the summer that no decisions would be made before September, so interested parties could fulfill summer schedules without worrying about missing a critical meeting.

The potential path to the county trail has divided the residents of Chester Valley Knoll. Some homeowners favor a route to the trail that doesn't require venturing onto busy Route 401. Others say the path could decrease privacy, increase crime and turn the neighborhood into a parking lot for trail users. Opponents have raised legal issues, including zoning and environmental concerns, in their efforts to prevent the path being built.

"I used to drive through the neighborhood and wave 'Hi,' and get a wave back," one resident said at a June meeting. "Now I'm not sure whether I'm going to get waved to or flipped off."
