On Monday evening Radnor's Board of Commissioners will hold a hearing and vote on the introduction of an ordinance of the Petition for Amendment to the Radnor Township Zoning Ordinance submitted by Villanova University. The Petition for Amendment proposes the establishment of a new Comprehensive Integrated College Development Use within the Planned Institutional District of the township.
According to Philly.com, the university is back with a "slightly scaled-down version" that includes reduced heights for some buildings, a smaller garage, and a bridge across Lancaster Avenue.
But some residents continue to be concerned with the new plan, it reports.
"I'm less concerned with how tall buildings are than what Villanova intends to do with all those cars," said Rick Leonardi, who lives near campus and is a member of Friends to Preserve Radnor, which opposed the plan, Philly.com reports.
Although school officials have said that their plan to keep more students housed on campus would reduce traffic in surrounding neighborhoods, opposed groups have maintained concern.
