The move comes after two tie votes and a court decision.
Upper St. Clair commissioners this week approved a plan for Deerfield Manor that will connect Turnberry Drive, currently a cul-de-sac, to Circle Drive. The vote was 6-0. The move comes after an Allegheny County Court of Common Pleas judge ruled that Turnberry Drive must connect to Circle. The decision went to court after Upper St. Clair commissioners were deadlocked on a revised preliminary subdivision for the residential Deerfield Manor Plan No. 9, repeating a situation that occurred in March 2012, when a tie vote effectively defeated the measure. The approved plan has five new lots varying from 1.17 to 4.4 acres. About 350 feet of the connection between Turnberry and Circle drives will remain a private road. At least one of the Peters …
See if the decision will affect Upper St. Clair.
The revised Pennsylvania legislative reapportionment plan was upheld in state Supreme Court, according to the Tribune Review. All appeals to the plan have been dismissed, which sets legislative boundaries based on the 2010 census shift, according to the report. The plan will go into effect in the 2014 election year. The reapportionment will not affect Upper St. Clair's leadership. State Sen. Matt Smith (D-Mt. Lebanon) of the 37th District will lose the boroughs of Avalon and Ben Avon and gain the boroughs of McDonald (Allegheny County portion), Rosslyn Farms, Pennsbury Village and Thornburg, as well as Robinson Township.

Traffic engineers agree the development will cause a need for Boyce Road improvements, including an additional traffic signal.
Developer John Deklewa detailed the plan to build an apartment complex off of Boyce Plaza Road in Upper St. Clair at the commissioners meeting Monday night. He described the rental complex, called Torrente at Upper St. Clair, as "upscale" and estimated rent for the one- and two-bedroom units would range between $1,200 and $1,800 a month. The plan calls for nine buildings—four would have 30 apartment units and five would have 20 apartment units. Construction would last about two years, and Deklewa hopes to begin in 2013.
