“The development activity in this town, and the interest in this town, is immense,” said Rusty Drumheller, Kennett Square’s codes enforcement officer.

The proposals vary from building a new brewpub to expanding senior housing. One person also proposed starting a shuttle service so people can easily get to the New Garden shopping complex and Longwood Gardens.

According to Jeff Dowd, a local real estate broker, the surge in Kennett Square’s commercial market is being driven by the strong residential market.

“On the residential side, people are flocking here because homes are more affordable, and they enjoy a great quality of life,” he said.
