Turkey Farm Receives Visit, But No Decision Made
Chester Borough officials walk through the proposed changes to the site, but still gathering input.
At the end of 75 minutes of a site walkthrough and another two hours of debate at Tuesday's Chester Borough Council meeting, no decision was made on the zoning request put forth by the owners of the Larison's Turkey Farm property last month.
"We are going to continue to have public input and continue with the visioning process through our planner," Mayor Bob Davis said. "The owner and developer was grateful to be able to show us around the property and share his expectation for the site development."
Davis said the council also had a chance to speak with the developer.
"We got a sense of his reality of the site and the Turkey Farm building itself," Davis said. "The lack of structural integrity to the building, there is lead paint in the building, the systems are failed."
There are several development options on the table, one of which is a replacement building.
"He has offered to give us a brand new building that looks the same," Davis said.
The council next meets on Monday, Nov. 5 because of elections and Davis urged the public to share their thoughts between now and then or at the next meeting itself.
