The Plum Run corridor crosses the southern section of the Township and runs roughly parallel to Lenape Road (Route 52) in an east-to-west direction. This physically links the Brandywine Creek to the West Chester University campus’ Robert B. Gordon Natural Area. There are over 130 acres of preserved land along the Plum Run in East Bradford Township. The Township’s recent acquisition of 14 acres of land within the Strode’s Mill Historic District, in addition to land being dedicated to the Township along Tigue Road, has provided an opportunity to plan for public access and recreational enhancements along the corridor.
MASTER PLAN PROJECT 2018-2019
The Plum Run Master Plan project seeks to advance several priority recommendations in the Township’s updated 2016 Comprehensive Plan by increasing public access to the Township’s natural and historic resources, creating safer multi-modal opportunities for cyclists and pedestrians, and interpreting the cultural history of the corridor. A master plan Task Force comprised of Township residents has been assembled to work with professional planners and the public in order to formulate a feasible plan for the eastern half of the corridor that will both protect its resources and benefit the public. The planning for the eastern portion of the corridor is expected to be complete by the end of 2019. Documents pertaining to the master planning project are available below. If you have questions about this effort, contact Rich Phifer at firstname.lastname@example.org or (610) 436-5108 x108.
