I will comment again, My father, Bernard White was the president of the Radnor Board of Commissioners , when " The Willows " was acquired. He and the other board members fought tenaciously for this beautiful 47 acre park to be preserved for Radnor Residents enjoyment. Certainly not for housing or townhouses !! That is by far the worst proposal. The Manor -Born idea is laughable . I remember being a bridesmaid when I was living on the Main Line. I drove to " The Manor " in West Orange , New Jersey. Upon arrival ,I went to the ladies room. There were many bridesmaids in an assortment of dresses. I just can't imagine having a wedding at " The Willows " with 2 or 3 othwer weddings going on at the same time. Let's keep that to the " Jersey Girls ! " Personally , I like Jeff Miller's / caterer proposal. Please Radnor residents preserve this beautiful area for now and future generations . Sincerely, Barbara White Waterman

Hoping the Commissioners who have lived long enough in the township - LOL - to remember what the estate was and what it is now so that they do not ruin another Radnor park/estate. Hoping that maybe the read up on the history of the estate and ho wit was acquired by the township in the 70s.

Unfortunately, it doesn't seem like this is up to the residents...despite majority residents protesting other township activities, it seems that the Commissioners do what they want. Many times not in the best interest of the residents/community

Many of whom seem fairly newly transient to the area, and do not know, understand, or appreciate the history of some twp assets to make appropriate decisions in the twp's best interests
