Stop Rustin High School Subdivision

189 Signatures Goal: 5,000

The West Chester Area School District is seeking to sell some of its acreage on the Rustin High School campus to a developer to build 50 houses. The property is located at 1100 Shiloh Road, West Chester PA.

We, the undersigned, oppose the subdivision and ultimate sale and development of the Rustin High School property for the above stated purpose. The density proposed will put up to 4 homes on each acre (houses averaging 3500 to 3800 square feet), when other homes in the area have one acre and in many cases more than an acre. This out of scale development will completely change the character of this neighborhood.

We are in favor of helping to preserve community character and open space and preventing out-of-scale development on Shiloh Road in Westtown.

    This proposed plan reeks of greed. If the 50 acres were zoned the same as the houses across the street in Plumbly, 1 Acre+ per house. It would be acceptable. But 3-4 houses / acre would DESTROY the fabric of the existing place we tax paying citizens call home. Before the Rustin was built, there was another company that wanted to do the same thing as proposed. We sued them and fought them at every level of the political system in place. They failed. We are very proud of this area. We cannot allow it to be tainted with suburban blight.

    Selling off the land on the campus of Rustin High School to a developer is completely wrong. Open space today is very important to our community and what can be more important to have it attached to educational facility. Besides we no longer need GREED in the home building industry.

    I live nearby Rustin and agree this is an out of scale neighborhood. All developments in Westtown should be a minimum of 1 acre per house.

    KEEP THE OPEN SPACE! It will be too much traffic on that road, more accidents and not good for the school kids to have a development there!
