Blog: St. Davids Golf Club to (Finally) Build Sidewalks

Looks like the final chapter on the sidewalk saga is about to close -- St. Davids open land development agreement to be completed with the construction of the required walkway.

It is hard to believe, but it looks like the St. Davids sidewalk saga that has plagued the township for years is about to end.  The open land development agreement with St. Davids Golf Club for their new clubhouse goes back at least 6 years.  As part of St. Davids contract with the township, the project was to include sidewalks.  Although the clubhouse was completed several years ago, the sidewalk remained outstanding.

As anyone knows who has lived in the township for the last couple of years, the sidewalks at St. Davids has been a seemingly endless tale including the threat of a lawsuit by a resident, a special Sidewalk Subcommittee, a new sidewalks ordinance, and on and on.  At this weeks's Board of Supervisors meeting, came the announcement from supervisor Mike Heaberg that St. Davids Golf Club has officially notified the township that they will build the sidewalks, thus completing their land development agreement.  The start date was given as March-April.

Regardless of whether you believe the sidewalks at St. Davids are the ‘sidewalk to nowhere’ a catch phrase coined by some, or you think that sidewalks are an important part of the Green Route Network, I think that we can all be grateful that this open township issue will finally be put to rest.

Mark Hoards, an attorney for St. Davids used that term at a BOSS meeting in 10/08. As someone who lives near "nowhere" I will be happy to see the sidewalk completed.
