Starting Saturday, October 7th we would like to welcome local citizens and their dogs to Wenonah Lake to play and “chase away” the geese. Every Tuesday & Thursday from 5p.m. to dusk and Saturday & Sunday from 4p.m. to dusk the gates at the Lake will be opened. Please do not bring dogs that do not play well. Also, we ask that you clean up after your dog. Bags will be available. These events are to humanely scare the geese off the property, convincing them they are not safe, not to hurt them.
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.
