In Summer of 2021, the owners of the Palmer Tract began mounting a legal challenge to the Worcester Township Zoning code.
Their aim is to have the 55 acre Palmer Property on the corner of Valley Forge Road and Skippack Pike rezoned from the existing mix of 48 acres residential and 7 acres limited commercial, to entirely commercial. They may be able to develop the property with one or more of the following uses: hotels, supermarkets & department stores, research facilities, clinics, and indoor recreation facilities
The Zoning Challenge, if approved, would worsen traffic, bring overdevelopment to the center of Worcester, and disregard the Township's interest in thoughtfully developing Center Point Village in a way that is consistent with our community's special rural & historic character.
This 55 acre property may be entirely rezoned Commercial at Skippack Pike and Valley Forge Road .
Consider this: the Montgomery Mall is 58.3 acres in size
How would you feel if a supermarket, hotel, research facility, indoor recreation center, large clinic and department stores were built in the heart of Worcester? This is what’s at stake.
