Changes in Paoli

An article in the Local Daily News pointed out that Paoli is working to be pedestrian friendly. The Tredyffrin Board of Supervisors held a public hearing to consider adopting changes to the zoning ordinances aimed at turning Paoli into more of a town center. Supervisors propose creating two zoning districts known as the Transit District and the Town Center District. Both of these districts will encourage high-density residential/commercial development and could include a parking garage and streetscape improvements. The supervisors will review the zoning again in May.

This adds to the overall plan that Tredyffrin and Willistown have for Paoli that includes redevelopment of the Paoli Station which will include homes and offices as well as a new station.

Just west of Paoli O'Neill properties is developing a "Town Center" on the old Worthington Steel plant location, just south of Route 202, but obviously town centers built around actual towns is much better and anything that is pedestrian friendly can only help everyone, from kids to seniors as we are encouraged to walk rather than drive.

These developments will also add to the townships tax coffers as businesses and more residential homes are built helping property taxes for older homes and seniors possibly remain at their current levels or even be lowered.
