Condos, apartments, road diet, new council member, and more on agenda for August 4th meeting of Conshohocken’s Borough Council

There are several substantive items on the agenda for the August 4th meeting of Conshohocken’s Borough Council.

There are three land-use items. The first is involves whether to grant a conditional use for the proposed condo community at 450 Colwell Lane. This is the warehouse property that is currently being converted into an indoor sports complex. If the conditional use is granted, the developer will have the option to redevelop the property after seven years into a condo community (that would look like townhouses). You can read more about this here.

The second and third items involve an application for an apartment community at 400 West Elm Street (read more here) and a single at 333 West 7th Avenue that would be replaced by twins.

Those items will be followed by a presentation on a previously discussed road diet that would limit a portion of Fayette Street to a single lane in each direction (with turning lanes). You can read more about this here.

Under “Manager Matters” there is one item that involves approving the creation of three 15-minute parking spaces (two along the eastern 100 block of Fayette Street and one space on East 2nd Avenue into 15-minute parking). This is to help with pick-up and delivery from the nearby restaurants.

Then under “Council Matters” the council will consider appointing a replacement for Jane Flanagan who resigned as the representative of Ward 5 last month.

The meeting will be held virtually at 7:00 p.m. Details on joining the meeting can be found here.
