Upper Saucon Township supervisors on Monday unanimously approved a subdivision plan for an age-restricted community that is to be built on 150 acres at the corner of W. Hopewell and Lanark roads.
The plan for Traditions of America calls for the construction of 241 residential dwelling units, as well as the preservation of areas of open space, the construction of a public walking path and roadside improvements.
Board chairman Steve Wagner asked a representative for the developer what the timeline will be for the site's development, which is expected to occur in phases.
He was told to expect a fairly aggressive development schedule, meaning the project's third phase could already be under way in about a year.
The land on which the homes will be built was once owned by the nearby Wedgewood Golf Course, and is being redeveloped within an age-restricted overlay zoning district.
Supervisor Dennis Benner was absent.
