The implementation LRA for the former Naval Air Station Willow Grove will look very much like the entity that led the effort to forge a reuse plan for the 861-acre site, as the Horsham Township Council on Monday appointed four current members of the LRA to the new authority.
The council’s president was the one new member appointed to the authority that will carry out a plan that calls for a mix of uses, including a town center, neighborhoods with a variety of housing types, office and business parks, areas for recreation and parks, and other uses. The new LRA will have only five members on its board, while the current one has seven members, reported the Hatboro-Horsham Patch.
One of the next steps for the Horsham Land Redevelopment Authority will be to apply for grants needed to pay consultants to shepherd the process of applying for an economic development conveyance. Separately, the Navy has hired a consultant to perform an environmental impact study for the site located outside of Philadelphia.
