Valley Forge museum opponents get their day
The saga continues.
Late last week, Thursday night, opponents of the American Revolution Center, a planned museum and hotel complex slated to be built at Valley Forge National Historical Park, got a chance to voice their opposition to the project.
WHYY’s Alex Schmidt was there and filed a report that I’ll be linking to shortly.
You may remember this project as the one that sparked such a huge discussion on this very blog just a few short weeks ago.
Part of the opposition, led by the National Parks Conservation Association, used a legal argument to say that the planned complex is a case of illegal or improper zoning by the Lower Providence Township Zoning Board.
Whatever the zoning board’s decision, however, it appears that both sides are prepared for a long process and the winners will be the side that’s prepared to fight the longest. In fact, you could probably draw some parallels between this story and the Delaware waterfront casino opposition going on several miles to the east in Philadelphia.
