Alternate Uses

One use I’d like to see on a personal note. One idea that has been brought up is using the runway, once it’s closed, for Land Speed Racing, five times a year in North Carolina and twice a year in Maine “abandoned” runways much like Willow Grove are used to land speed racing. The events are short, Friday to Sunday afternoon and are only run during the daylight hours. There are sections of Johnsville that are used for Auto Cross already. The LSR events do not draw huge crowds but they do bring people from out of the area for safe and controlled racing. I do have a personal interest in this interim use and from what I understand removing the runway at this point in time is cost prohibitive.

Ideas

The site NEEDS people to post ideas. It’s not all that important that ideas appear like they are something brilliant or that they will appear like they have been crafted by a scolar. Just get the ideas out there!

Next meeting

The next meeting of the Land Reuse Authority – 16 March 2011 – I spoke to RKG last week and they mostly kicked around some ideas. I’ve also spoke to some people in the community and also folks from Hatboro. The direction for the reuse is not clear yet

Ideas From Monday Night Meeting

Environmental issues should help to drive the reuse plan

Base should be able to be a key location to manage storm water for the township

Possible alternate energy generation

Solar FarmTake a look at the base for alternate Energy Generation. The exposure on the base is wonderful for solar generation.
Can the base and the area become a point for energy development?
Some kind of a laboratory area for alternate energy development

Manufacturing

Encourage some kind of manufacturing in the township, sustainable, long term friendly to the community and the general reigon

Improvements to road infrastructure

Relocation of existing business to the base property in order to improve the road system should be free of charge

  • Township newsletter is not published often enough.
  • History of the “Impact Aid” dollar amount to the township
  • What is the capacity of the school district in its present condition?
  •  Will new families coming into the township fill the school district? Or will it overwhelm it?
  • Will the base become some other facility for Emergency management in the reigon?
  • Redevelopment of the base should benefit the township entities that are predevelopment
  • Will the financial statements of the LRA be public record?
  • Pollution issues
  • The base does have the potential of generating an additional 750,000 or more in township taxes
