Final approval of a new residential plan is expected to come up for Upper St. Clair commissioners’ consideration on Tuesday.
Willowbrook Estates PRD has been recommended for approval by the township planning commission. In August, the board of commissioners granted tentative approval by a 4-3 vote.
The 10-acre development calls for 15 new single-family homes off Willowbrook Road and Oaklawn Drive. Plans include building an extension from Willowbrook as a private street and connecting the northern and southern portions of Oaklawn.
During public meetings addressing the project, neighboring property owners have expressed a variety of concerns about storm-water runoff. Plans have been revised during the past few months in an attempt to provide for better drainage.
Also on the commissioners’ agenda for Tuesday, as discussed at a recent informational and general affairs meeting:
- Township staff has recommended a board vote on expansion of the parking area at the Norman Centre. A new, as-yet-unannounced tenant has requested 22 additional spaces at the office-retail complex, which splits its property between Upper St. Clair and Bethel Park.
- Commissioners also will vote on final approval of renovations and additions at Friendship Village of South Hills, off Boyce Road. Plans call for renovations including an enlarged meeting room and atrium space, enhanced dining and kitchen areas, more parking spaces, improved access for emergency services and new landscaping.
