The Borough of Wenonah has received Federal Grant Money back in 2014 to improve Mantua Avenue from Monroe Ave. to Marion Ave.. After many meetings and approvals, the work will finally commence on December 11th, 2017 and shall be completed by March 2018. The grant project is designed to beautify the center of town, to strengthen the cultural, aesthetic and environmental aspects as well as helping to improve transportation assets for community enhancements, pedestrian safety and increase your property values. Please expect minor inconveniences during construction.
Thank you for your cooperation,
Karen L. Sweeney, Borough Administrator
The Environment Impact Study, (EIS), being conducted by STV, was halted back in 2015. The Borough of Wenonah received the attached letter in August from STV advising the study was restarting and there was a new option available regarding a proposed Borough Station and the EIS.
The request was distributed to Borough Council and was on the agenda at the September Borough Council meeting for discussion.
A vote for either removal of the station entirely from consideration or relabeling of the station as a “potential future station” will take place at the October 26th Council meeting.
It is important to note that STV has indicated that the decision to elect the “potential future station” does not have any binding effect on the Borough with regard to the rejection of a station in Wenonah. I will allow STV to conduct additional impact studies that are required if a station was to be constructed, not that it will be constructed.
NOTE: In 2014, Wenonah held a referendum on the acceptance or rejection of a “walk-up” station on the line. About 60% of the voters rejected having a station in Wenonah.
