The Towamencin Supervisors have held a public hearing on a zoning ordinance text amendment that would allow a garage bay in the R-5 townhouse district count toward the three space off street parking requirement. The proposed change affects the Thorndale carriage house developoment W-B Homes is building across from the Towamencin Shopping Center on Allentown Road. Officials with W-B Homes say the amendment would make the project more environmentally friendly by allowing it to be built with half an acre less of blacktop. The township supervisors are likely to take action on the proposed amendment at their meeting on January 25th. The developer hopes to break ground on the project in about six weeks.
