Brant Court PUD review by Planning Commission Postponed
Due to unforeseen circumstances, only three members of Easton’s Planning Commission can be present for this Thursday’s meeting. Under the Commission’s Rules and Procedures, any votes of the Commission would have to pass unanimously in order to be approved. Further, in such circumstances applicants are afforded the option of proceeding with just the three members present knowing that such a unanimous approval would be required, or waiting until such time as a full board can be assembled.
There are two items on Thursday’s Planning Commission Agenda. The applicant in the Tred Avon Shopping Center/Easton Eye Care Expansion has decided to proceed with the members present. The applicant for the Brant Court PUD has elected to postpone their review until such time as a full board can be present.
Therefore, while the meeting will be taking place this Thursday at 6:00 p.m., the Brant Court PUD WILL NOT be reviewed or discussed by the Planning Commission at the meeting. We regret any inconvenience this may cause and we will post another notice of the reschedule date and time for consideration of the matter by the Planning Commission.

Storm Water Management System Upgrades
The Town of Easton is nearing completion of an upgrade to the storm water management system that is located adjacent to the rail trail and Dover Street. This project primarily relates to the installation of two storm water management facilities, with bio retention areas, which are intended to hold peak event storm water and to naturally process that water so that discharges from the storm water system are of increased quality.
With increases in impervious surfaces, some areas of the town were experiencing localized flooding during peak storm events. As the Town studied ways to address this problem, through detailed examination of existing systems and options, it was decided that the best way to address this vicinity was by the installation of storm water management facilities. The underlying storm drain system in this vicinity, while approaching 100 years in age, was found to be remarkably intact and viable although the capacity was being overwhelmed in certain peak storm events.
The current installation consists of two storm water management facilities where the storm water will be collected, held, and then percolated through differing types of material prior to introduction into the storm drainage system. This installation is being constructed by Town of Easton crews and contractor crews at a cost of approximately $130,000. This cost is entirely funded by the Town of Easton. Additional improvements in the vicinity are also forthcoming.
