Haverford Partnership for Economic Development Revised Proposal to Haverford Township for Oakmont District EnhancementsThe HPED is an organization formed with the cooperation of the Board ofCommissioners to foster and advance the interests of the business communityin Haverford Township, including the improvement of public spaces in thebusiness districts.History of organization – (summarize)We have been before the BOC a few times in the past months to coordinatestreetscape amenities for the Township business districts.The feedback we received was that the BOC would rather we concentrate ourefforts in one or two areas for more of an impact.
  2. 2. Haverford Partnership for Economic Development Revised Proposal to Haverford Township for Oakmont District Enhancements The Oakmont District is the most logical next step: A comprehensive plan has already been approved by the Township for the Oakmont Business District and Eagle Road corridor (2008) The YMCA, as part of its land development plan, has proposed traffic mitigation infrastructure improvements to the Darby/Eagle intersection The Oakmont Parking Lot has been included in the capital budget and construction is scheduled to begin this spring The Township received Act 129 rebates from PECO to fund decorative lighting from the parking lot along Darby Road and Eagle Road to East Darby Road Other Districts (Brookline lot, Manoa and WC Pike) have already had improvements in recent years The 2013 U.S. Open will bring more traffic and business to this area, being the closest business district to the course
  3. 3. Haverford Partnership for Economic Development Revised Proposal to Haverford Township for Oakmont District EnhancementsWe request that the Township consider our offer to match funds for brick paversedging the curbs of Darby and Eagle in this area.  A trench will already be cut for the wiring to the new lighting. Estimate to pour concrete back in the trenches @ $10/sq. ft.  The cost for brick pavers is $15/sq.ft.  We propose to raise the funds for a 50/50 match of the difference between the two.  We have verbal and written commitments from many property owners in the district. Fund raising will also take place among residents Township-wide.
