Bedminster Township Planning
|The Bedminster Township Planning Commission has scheduled a meeting at 7 p.m. Monday, Dec. 3, to discuss a new proposal by The Piper Group to build 208 new single-family homes in three areas of the township.
The meeting is being held at Solomon’s United Church of Christ, 2990 Bedminster Road, because township authorities expect a large turnout of concerned residents.
The construction concerns 353 acres of Piper-owned property in Pipersville, on which Robert Sigety, president of the company, wants to build about 160 new homes, most of them on 75 feet wide by 120 feet long lots.
They would be located on two parcels of farm land located on either side of Dark Hollow Road near the intersection of Carversville Road.
The project also includes farm land on Durham, Easton and Old Easton roads, essentially the area that comprises what is generally known as “old Pipersville” some of which dates back to the 18th century.
Residents can view the sketch plans at Bedminster Land Use Office, 432 Elephant Road, during business hours, 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
The Piper Group also is in court pursuing approval of large housing development in Tinicum Township that abuts the land in Pipersville. Tinicum is fighting that plan in court, as Bedminster did beginning years ago when Piper proposed building even more homes on the Pipersville land.
