No new townhouses

MILFORD - Given the opportunity for the hot property on the housing market, residents in the Sixth Street area decided to stick with Beaver Cleaver’s neighborhood. Attorney Andrew Hailstone on Monday offered what he called a compromise solution for development of a sloped five-lot tract at the borough’s township boundary. He said the single structure, versus five separate homes, would reduce tree removal and downgrade flood concerns. Neighbors’ attorney John Duke Schneider said the compromise effort was an attempt to get something the developers wouldn’t get otherwise. Borough Solicitor John Klemeyer warned neighbors that no borough decision would quell flooding fears completely and that a project could not be denied, “simply because we don’t like it.” While it might be like “finding peace in the Middle East,” he asked the adversaries to negotiate again.
