I am not a billboard fan. Never have been. I am not a West Whiteland resident, but I am a Chester County resident. There is a video which residents in West Whiteland who got the letter were also invited to watch.

Here is property listing on LoopNet and it shows that it is off the market.
My opinion is Route 100 is such a zoo already, and this would bring the potential for additional light pollution, wouldn’t it? And would it be a hazardous distraction on accident prone Route 100? The video shows their farm market concept, which by itself without the billboard I have no problem with, except to wonder about the traffic there and is there truly enough space?
The property is next to that place that looks like it is a motel, but I guess are apartments? And what about the creek that runs right there? And if you take out all of those trees, how will that potentially affect the residents back up behind there even if there was no billboard?
Yes, it’s an ugly site, but is this the best solution? And is the entire parcel all in West Whiteland or is part in Uwchlan maybe?
I hear neighbors are up in arms already at the proposal, and can you blame them?
I only ask reasonable questions as an observer and resident of Chester County. It will be interesting to see how his proceeds, won’t it?
