|10 Lansdowne Court and 20th Century Club
|An Act 247 application is being submitted by the Borough to the Delaware County Planning Commission for a reverse subdivision of three contiguous properties owned by the Borough. The application will be voted upon by the County on May 20th. The purpose of reversing the subdivision to create one parcel is to make the property more attractive to grantors. Any historic status of any of the properties would not be adversely affected. Mr. Bartmann made a motion to recommend to Borough Council that the reverse subdivision be approved. Ms. Schaner seconded the motion. The motion passed 4 members to one with Mr. Smith voting against.|

Mr. Smith made a motion that the LPC recommend the plan to install two benches in the parklet with a provision for future benches and also recommend to Borough Council the re-consideration of and action on the plan that was submitted a year ago.
