Radnor officials and residents on Monday discussed a proposal to turn North Wayne playing field into a pond-and-basin stormwater facility.
"All three options Cummins proposed would reduce the ball field there to a dry basin designed to slow up to 80 percent of the storm-water that rampages from that source through the Poplar Ave. and Willow Ave. area during Wayne’s increasingly numerous heavy rains," reports Main Line Media News.

Township manager Bob Zienkowski's message about the issue was posted on the township's Web site:
Your input is very valuable as we work through all the various options that are currently being considered by the Township in this entire drainage area.
Also, please know that no decision has been made to date on a particular design or location as well as no funds have been appropriated or available for any improvement projects at this time. I have reached out to PECO, AT&T and SEPTA in regard to their water contributions to this issue and they are awaiting a plan from the Township on how we plan to proceed. At that time, we will engage them as part of the solution. I have also forwarded your email on to Chagrin Valley Engineering for their review and consideration.
Please also know that our Director of Recreation & Community Programming, Tammy Cohen, has also been involved in these discussions in which she has expressed her concerns over the loss of park & open space and the athletic fields which will also be playing in to our decision here as well.
