Veterans monument and riverfront townhouses on agenda for Whitemarsh’s Board of Supervisors

The Whitemarsh Board of Supervisors has a meeting scheduled for Thursday, March 11th at 6:00 p.m. There are two items that the public has been following:

The first is a review of the plan for a monument to veterans at the corner of Germantown Pike and Joshua Road in Miles Park. The plan for the monument has moved forward quietly for several years, but when the final plan was released it involved removing several healthy mature trees (which would be replaced elsewhere). Earlier in the approval process it was stated that no trees would be removed. Since then there has been a public outcry on social media and there was a meeting held by the committee working on the monument to address the issue. Based on social media comments, that quelled some concerns, but many still exist.

The second item is a plan for 62 townhouses at 901 Washington Street on the riverfront in the Conshohocken section of the township. The townhouses would be constructed on the property just upriver from David’s Bridal (near the Spring Mill Train Station). The plan is on the agenda for a review and then consideration of a resolution that would approve the revised preliminary plan.
