BRANDYWINE COUNTRY CLUB DEVELOPMENT & RENOVATION

Current Plan

CONCEPT 1

These concept plans have continued the evolution of the plan as it has proceeded through the process of review with both the Department of Land Use comment letter, as well as follow-up meetings with the Department and area stakeholders. Notable changes include, but are not limited to:

1. One of the topics frequently discussed was the interconnection through the community from Concord Pike to Shipley Road. Although previously addressed with a proposed traffic circle, there were still many comments offered regarding this connection. Thus, this concept plan divides the project between the apartment community to the western portion of the property and the single family homes to the east. The single family homes will continue to enter and exit from Shipley Road while the apartments would enter and exit from Concord Pike. The entrance on Shipley Road would be a standard subdivision entrance with no traffic circle. While there would be no vehicle interconnection between the communities, pedestrian interconnections would remain. In addition, interconnections to the properties to the north and south of the apartment community remain.

2. The number of single family homes has been significantly reduced through this plan. All attached housing has been eliminated in favor of single-family detached lots. The total number of houses has been reduced from 138 homes to 75 homes. None of the single family homes are now proposed to be age-restricted. The total unit count in the proposed community has now been reduced from 563 units at the time the project was first submitted to New castle County to 435 units.

3. Finally, we are proposing to dedicate for public use approximately 41 acres of property east of the proposed houses. While no final user has been identified, potential recipients would include the Brandywine School District and New Castle County. The final user would be identified prior to final approval of the plan for this community.

CONCEPT 2

This concept plan is essentially identical to the one above except for the fact that it has no vehicular connection with Shipley Road. All traffic would enter and exit the site via existing and proposed entrances and exits along Concord Pike. A bike/ped connection would still exist between Shipley Road and the Concord Square shopping center.
