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.

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.
