SANATOGA PA – Earth-moving equipment was brought Wednesday (Aug. 9, 2017) onto the vacant pastureland at the southwest corner of North Pleasant View and Bleim roads in Sanatoga, the surest sign (at top) that ground will soon be broken for construction of Spring Valley Farms. The 178-home community that received final approval during January from the Lower Pottsgrove Board of Commissioners has been given the go-ahead for grading for its first phase, according to township engineering firm Bursich Associates.
A pre-construction conference between Bursich staff members and representatives of developer Homsher Hill LLC and its contractors is scheduled for Tuesday (Aug. 15), Bursich engineer Chad Camburn told commissioners during their meeting this week. Revised plans, construction cost estimates, and grading permit applications for the project all were received and reviewed during July, he added.
The development is expected to be built in three or four phases, a Homsher Hill engineering representative said earlier. Several improvements on both roads are planned to accommodate additional traffic. Camburn earlier reported the developer intends to create single-floor, two-bedroom houses, with adult couples age 50 and older as targeted buyers. That announcement eliminated worries by the Pottsgrove School District that the new homes would also be accompanied by new students.
