Developer Withdraws Plan for Homes in Hereford Township
Written by Candace Perry, Correspondent

        In light of current events, the phrase “bought the farm” means good things in Hereford Township.

        Township Engineer Jennifer McConnell reported at the board of supervisors’ regular meeting on May 7 that Stewart & Conti, developers from Collegeville, had withdrawn their land development plan for the former Clemmer-Appold property.
        The property has been sold to a new buyer, Larry Shelmire, owner of Shelmire Farms in Milford Township, Bucks County. Shelmire is a crop farmer and also purchased the adjacent former Stanley Fox farm on Tollgate Road.
        The properties are bordered by Tollgate Road, Route 100 and County Line Road in Hereford Township, and include the historic Clemmer farmhouse and barn.
        Chairman John Membrino noted that “the economy played a big part” in the proposed development on the Clemmer-Appold property, which would have included 83 single-family and townhomes on approximately 180 acres.
        The development plan was initially filed six years ago.
        “We applaud them,” Membrino said of Shelmire’s purchase of the property.
        In other development news, McConnell reported that three new houses are presently being constructed in the township, and one additional house planned.
        In recycling news, Township Secretary Norann Warmkessel reported changes to the recycling schedule, which will not impact residents, but will help prevent refuse pile up around the bins.
        “The last few weeks we’ve had a mess,” she stated. The pick-up schedule will change from once a week to every five days.
        She further noted that the worst weeks are those when the township would have previously offered its once-a-month recycling.
