County approves zoning switch for 840-unit Richburg residential development

Chester County Council’s agenda for Monday night listed it as a zoning request, but really it was a demonstration of growing pains.

“We have about zero experience with residential growth. It’s new territory for us and more is coming,” said Councilman Alex Oliphant.

The council heard some particulars on a much-discussed development that is ultimately expected to bring 840 new rooftops to the Richburg area, specifically a request to rezone some Edgeland Road property from RG-1 (multifamily residential) to RG-2 (general residential).
