Fishing for Trout Creek protection

Looking to protect and improve the Trout Creek Watershed, Tredyffrin Township is developing a zoning amendment with an overlay district to encourage redevelopment on large properties in the watershed.

The township has conducted studies to evaluate and develop recommendations, such as stormwater facilities to manage runoff, for the watershed. The zoning amendment is part of the implementation effort, and the Planning Commission will continue its discussion of this ordinance at its meeting on Jan. 19 at 7 p.m. in the township building. In addition, a public hearing for the Trout Creek Overlay District Ordinance will follow the 7:30 p.m. supervisors’ meeting Jan. 23, also in the township building.
