Local Towns Make Money Magazine’s 100 Best Small Town List

Money Magazine lists West Goshen Township as No. 25 among America’s 100 best small towns for 2011.

West Goshen Township is the highest-ranking Pennsylvania town named on the top 100 list, with Horsham Township (31st), Ardmore (45th) and West Norriton Township (59th) following behind… (McCandless Township in suburban Pittsburgh also made the list coming in at 46th but was not mentioned in this article).

The Horsham Land Redevelopment Authority (HLRA) has a great opportunity ahead.  892 acres of land from the Willow Grove Naval Air Station will be available for development.  The possibilities are endless for such a vast tact of land.

Also joining HLRA will be Hatboro-Horsham School District, Montgomery County Community College and Horsham Township.  This group will craft a vision of the Horsham of the future.  Public participation is desired.

Only 200 acres of the enormous base will remain with the Army Reserve and PA Air National Guard.  The runway will be closed in March.  The base has been “on again, off again” since 2005, but the end has finally come.  Now, the daunting task of what to do with this much public land begins.

HLRA has an exciting task ahead.  They have partnered with other good organizations, and the public, to create something amazing that will benefit the Philadelphia region.

I am excited to watch the process unfold and see the result.
