KEEP UP THE PRESSURE OF LETTERS OPPOSING THE SLIP-RAMP
A meeting April 26th at Charlestown School was the fourth anti-slip ramp meeting called by Sally Willig and her hard working committee. The guest of honor was Carole Rubley (right), our state representative, who recounted her participation in and her assessment of our fight against the Turnpike.
Before her 7:30 arrival Ellen Behrle recognized the scouts who helped the protest at GVHS 2/25, Irene Ewald described the township's planned legal challenge, and Janet Baldwin (left) briefly recounted the efforts of the Charlestown Historical Commission to establish with the Pennsylvania Historical and Museum Commission the eligibility of Devault and Cedar Hollow as a potential National Register district. The Turnpike's historical consultant, Cultural Heritage Research Services of North Wales, is arguing, naturally, that construction of the original Turnpike destroyed the Devault community. PHMC's Kurt Carr has, however, promised to come down for a site visit.
Sue Staas followed up with a report on the 2020 conference (See the CHS Newsletter for Sue's report). Because we have fewer residents than Tredyffrin, we have to write twice as many letters to dislodge the Turnpike's slip-ramp plans.
