Neighbors rally to guide Garrett Hill’s development


The Philadelphia Inquirer reports on the recent Garrett Hill Master Plan and overlay district.

Over the past two years residents of Garrett Hill, a neighborhood located within Radnor Township, have been working with township officials and planning consultants to help create a new master plan and zoning overlay for the community.   The community struggles with balancing new visions for Garrett Hill while still maintaining the treasured character of the community.


On Monday evening, October 19, 2009, the master plan will be presented to the Radnor Commissioners in a public hearing. The hearing will take place at 7:00 p.m., at the Radnor Township Municipal Building, 301 Iven Avenue, Wayne, PA 19087
