Willow Grove LRA Tweaks Housing Density in Reuse Plan
- January 3, 2012
The Horsham LRA recommended reducing the density of the 862-acre reuse plan for the former Naval Air Station Willow Grove by 30 percent during a conference call last month with its consultant RKG Associates.
A reduction in the number of housing units from 1,999 to 1,416 would affect single-family homes, townhomes, and apartments and condominiums primarily on the north end of the base, where a 27-acre, mixed-use town center is planned, reported the Intelligencer.
The LRA is trying to meet a March deadline for completing the reuse plan for the site located outside of Philadelphia. The authority could approve the final plan at its Feb. 15 meeting, according to the story.
Separately, the Navy last month transferred 27 acres at the base to the Air Force for use by the Pennsylvania Air National Guard.
