Third Street Litigation: Ruling by Judge Proud
We are disappointed to report that Judge Proud ruled yesterday in favor of BLCC’s Petition for Contempt and Enforcement of Stipulation and Order. He ordered the Borough to “proceed with due diligence in compliance with the Stipulation and Order.” The design plans that have been shared publicly show a new dam, approximately 2/3 acre larger than the existing dam, to meet current dam structure requirements and a roadway which could accommodate two-way vehicular traffic.
You can read the one-page Order by Judge Proud. We will report more as we learn about any further legal aspects to this case, and about the timing of the proposed dam replacement project.
You can read about the proposed construction area for the new dam, including the approximately 2/3 acre of Glen Providence Park that would be buried under earthfill, in our 1.1 Acre Photojournal.
The Friends of Glen Providence Park continues to support dam removal, stream restoration and a local discussion of an environmentally-sensitive bridge between Media Borough and Upper Providence.
