New Hope Council Not Opposing Request for Zoning Relief for Redevelopment of The Landing
The New Hope Borough Council has voted to remain neutral on a request for zoning relief submitted for the redevelopment of The Landing on North Main Street, writes Jeff Werner for the Patch.
The council voted not to oppose the request for upwards of 40 variances for the project after listening to public comments for over an hour as well as hearing from a developer during a packed meeting on Tuesday.
“We are not here approving this project as it’s being shown,” said Council President Connie Gering. “Our job tonight is do we support this application to go to zoning or are we going to oppose it.”
Real estate developer Landmark Developers is proposing to redevelop the North Main Street site by constructing a 44-room hotel with a restaurant, a pool, and artist-in-residence quarters at the site that was previously The Landing and Fred’s Breakfast.
Enhancements to the pocket park at the foot of East Randolph Street are also planned.
Meanwhile the majority of the residents who spoke during the meeting opposed the size and scope of the redevelopment. They also mentioned traffic, noise, and parking as potential problems.
