KENNETT SQUARE, PA – By a 4-3 vote, council Monday night adopted an ordinance that creates a new, expanded historic district, disbands the borough’s historic commission, and creates a unified Historic Architectural Review Board. The measure will affect every structure in the new and refined historic district.
“This is probably the toughest decision that we have made as a council,” said Leon Spencer, council president.
Councilors Geoff Bosley, Chip Plumley and Patrick Taylor dissented.
The ordinance is the result of a compromise from a previous proposed historic district ordinance that was more stringent and had two separate historic zones. That proposal was defeated last year.
