Pennsylvania Commonwealth Court arguments on Toll Brothers’ appeal to build a 319-house subdivision at Crebilly Farm in Westtown Township have been moved to Pittsburgh, writes Fran Maye for the Daily Local News.
Toll Brothers has filed an appeal of last year’s decision by Westtown Township supervisors to deny the developer a conditional use application for the 322-acre property. At Toll’s request, it has been moved across the state and set for May 6.
Patrick McKenna, Westtown Township’s counsel, tried to prevent the move, citing unduly burdensome costs to the township and its taxpaying residents.
“Taking this battle venue to Pittsburgh is giving Toll Brothers a happy dance knowing it will be difficult for many to attend,” said Vince Moro, co-founder of Neighbors for Crebilly.
The hearing will still have a strong presence from Chester County, as a bus trip has been planned. There will be 54 seats at $45 each with free cupcakes and coffee provided.
The case will be argued before three judges at 1 PM. The judges will then take as much time as they need to make their decision.
