I have been sitting on this. I knew East Whiteland was working hard to get the derelict building that had a fire Christmas Eve, 2016 next to the WaWa at Route 30 and Planebrook, behind Osman’s Pizza in Frazer (a/k/a 577 Lancaster Ave) demolished.
The structure was never repaired. In my opinion it was also never properly secured all these years. It was featured a lot on this blog.
So anyway this was a situation that bothered lots of people, including East Whiteland Township staff and elected officials. Township staff and Supervisor Scott Lambert kept chipping away at the issue, and finally last week I was told there would be good news come Monday morning.
On Friday if you were around the WaWa, you saw equipment being dropped off.
Well it’s Monday, and I have good news: as you can see from the video this hideous, derelict structure is finally coming down.
I know you all think all I do is criticize local government but I am going to thank East Whiteland because as we learned from them trying to get Malvern Meetinghouse down for years, it doesn’t happen overnight.
Thank you East Whiteland!
