EAST COVENTRY PA – The East Coventry (PA) Township Board of Supervisors declined Monday (Sept. 13, 2010) to endorse the U.S. Route 422 Master Plan in a 3-2 vote, Supervisor Michael Moyer reported by e-mail. An earlier vote on the plan, from which board Chairman Tim Roland was absent, resulted in a 2-2 tie.

Moyer said he, along with Supervisors W. Atlee Rinehart and Mariea Geho, voted to reject the plan, which sets out a series of strategies to reduce traffic congestion, expand transportation choices, and make better use of available land in the highway corridor that stretches 25 miles from King of Prussia west to Reading PA. It includes East Coventry. Supervisors Roland and Vice Chairman Ray Kolb favored the proposal.

Before the second vote, Moyer noted, the board received a letter from a representative of the Delaware Valley Regional Planning Commission – which sponsored the master plan – asking supervisors to be “open-minded” about the plan while a study of potential funding solutions to support it is conducted.
