Stoltz issues take-it-or-leave-it ultimatum to revise 4 controversial development proposals - Delaforum.com

Stoltz Real Estate Partners has offered to revise four controversial development proposals in return for active support from at least one major civic organization.

County Councilman Robert Weiner on Oct. 21 made public a letter from Brad Coburn, Stoltz's chief operating officer, to the Kennett Pike Association in which he offered what Weiner referred to as a "take it or leave it" compromise. It set a deadline of Nov. 7 for the organization to decide whether it will "cooperate with Stoltz and proactively support all four projects." The requested agreement also would require the organization to seek Department of Land Use and other governmental approvals "in an expedited manner." Weiner said he will recommend that the civic organization reject Stoltz's bid.

The Stoltz letter refers to a prior private meeting with County Executive Christopher Coons and what apparently were other meetings with "several community leaders," who are not identified. Weiner, whose district includes or abuts the project sites, indicated he was not included in any such meetings. The projects involved are the 'Shops at Brandywine' at Concord Pike and Naamans Road, Barley Mill Plaza, Greenville Center off Kennett Pike and the former Columbia Gas-M.B.N.A. Bank property on Montchanin Road. All four have met with strong community opposition. See www.Delaforum.com

The Stoltz letter refers to "a good-faith effort to address a number of concerns that we have heard from the community."
