Shenandoah Woods Officially Labeled Blighted Area

The Bucks County and Warminster planning committees agreed to the designation after reviewing documentation of the neighborhood's deteriorating condition.

The Bucks County and Warminster planning commission agreed last week to officially identify Shenandoah Woods as a blighted area and certified the former military housing neighborhood to the Bucks County Redevelopment Authority (BCRDA) as a redevelopment area.

The decision came following review of evidence that Shenandoah Woods met several of the criteria necessary to earn the blighted label, including inadequate planning of the area, faulty street and lot layout and economically or socially undesirable land use.

Warminster Township solicitor Michael Savona described the designation as the first of many steps toward redeveloping the 199 vacated residential units into a new neighborhood with 113 single and twin homes. The blighted label will help lower the value of the area when the BCRDA makes its bid for purchase from the Navy.
