We have many concerns about the Brandywine Road area. Besides the Keys Power plant now using the road with its trucks, in addition to gravel miners and other industry, and the Mattawoman plant having plans to put a pipeline on Brandywine Rd. at some unknown time, there are other projects planned on the road between Rt. 5 and just east of the railroad tracks. These activities include:
These activities could interfere with our ability to get around in the center of Brandywine – to access the bank, the post office, the elementary school, other businesses, and possibly even our homes. Traffic is also related to clean air due to exhaust fumes, which can especially be a problem with large trucks.
We would also like to keep in mind the plans of the county for Brandywine Revitalization to become a walkable/bike-able community.
If you would like to discuss these concerns with fellow residents of Brandywine, please join our new GoogleGroup so that we can send you announcements and you can give us feedback. The link is on the side of every page under Subscribe and the social media images. There’s also a link on the Donation page. We’d like to invite you to our next gathering, which we hope will be soon.
