Mount Pleasant Township approves plans for Woodfield Estates subdivision

| Tuesday, April 23, 2002

MAMMOTH - The second phase of the 52-lot Woodfield Estates subdivision of upscale homes in Mount Pleasant Township and Mount Pleasant Borough moved one step closer to approval Monday as township supervisors gave the nod to preliminary plans and passed them on to the planning commission.

The plan, which is being developed by Mount Pleasant-based F.R. Cernuto & Sons, is located on a 39.3-acre parcel off Sand Hill Road that spans the border of the borough and the township.

The first phase of the development, which includes 24 lots - 17 in the township and seven in the borough - was approved in 1993. Construction of the first homes got under way in 1994, and almost all of those lots now have been sold.

The new 28-lot phase will have 26 lots situated in the township and two lots in the borough.

In other business, the supervisors approved the township's participation in the PA CleanWays household hazardous waste collection program from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Sept. 21 at the Westmoreland Fairgrounds.

The supervisors also reminded township residents that the popular summer swim program will have to be canceled this year because of ongoing renovations to the Mount Pleasant Area High School swimming pool.

The supervisors have submitted an application for Community Development Block Grant funding for a municipal water project in the Springertown area of the township, near Mammoth. If approved, the project will serve more than a dozen families.
