RYDAL GREEN

 

Approximately one acre of land at the corner of Susquehanna and Huntington Pike  with the dilapidated clubhouse from the former  Rydal Golf Course & Country Club - has just changed hands again .  Originally acquired by McKinley Fire Co for a substation - the property has reverted again ( for the cost of  $1 ) to the township. The township expects that the cost of razing the clubhouse to be about $30,000 and that once done ( possibly by late summer of '08 )  the  land will be kept as open space ( though a possibility of it's use for an emergency substation in the  future will be retained.

There is a beautiful gated Community  behind  this plot called Rydal Green . It is a Galman Group endeavor.  Is it surprising that the Township cleared the land, made  no accommodations for use by the public and  has trouble even keeping hte sidewalks cleared . Part of the sidewalk they have said is the responsibilty of the resiential community .  But there has been little oversight by the Township.  The students that walk from Rydal School could use the construction of a safer path, away from the cars that whiz along right next to them. And bicyclists could use hte accommodation of a wider strip so they could walk their bike beside them at that dangerous spot.  So much for our "walkable communities" - They seem to be only for 100's of new  tenants that we bring in from elsewhere.

Knowledge is power. Stay informed to help shape your community and make a difference.

Abington Township, with John Spiegelman in charge, revamped the entire Township website at the end of 2015 and broke all the links to the information we had archived on this site for you.   In 2017, Manager Richard Manfredi arrived and assigned someone not qualified to redo the entire website again. They not only broke all archived links we had reinstated, but made everything as impossible to find as they could. Nearly all of our comments and recommedations to fix the Township website have been wholly ignored.

So we do need volunteers to work together helping the Township create a site that is functional and accessible.  We will be reinstating links as we find them....if the data is still available. So... please let us know if you find a broken link. Send us the URL of the link  and the name of the page it is on, and if we can, we'll reinstate it.
Thanks for the help.
