Villanova Proposal Given Another Look

Radnor Township's Board of Commissioners on Monday voted to send a zoning proposal by Villanova University to the Planning Commission for comments and recommendations.

Radnor Township's Board of Commissioners on Monday voted to send a zoning proposal by Villanova University to the Planning Commission for comments and recommendations.

Commissioner John Fisher was the sole vote against sending the "massive" zoning change back to the commission, which voted in May not to recommend the Planned Institutional ordinance, reports Main Line Media News.

The proposed zoning change would also apply to other higher education institutions in Radnor.

Traffic has been a major issue with the proposal for people living in surrounding neighborhoods. At the meeting Monday many people wore orange "No VU" stickers on their shirts.

Fisher said that he would have preferred that the BOC make changes to the zoning ordinance itself, rather than sending something back that is “virtually identical” to what the planners turned down, Main Line Media News reports.
