I am pleased to facilitate a community meeting on Wednesday, July 8, 2015 at 6:30 p.m. at the Brandywine Hundred Library on Foulk Road to discuss the Forwood Property located on Silverside Road. The developer has been working closely with the Department of Land Use over the last several months regarding potential options and is now prepared to present a Plan to the community. In our effort to keep you up to date on what is happening in our community, here is information about the proposed plan provided by the developer.
Developer Joe Setting, of Montchanin-based Setting Properties Inc., wants to develop the former Forwood School near Silverside and Marsh roads to make way for Branmar Commons, a 35-townhouse and commercial project. Plans for the 12-acre site call for three-story townhomes and five buildings with 30,000 square feet of retail, restaurants, bank coffee shop and a pharmacy. (See added information below)
The proposed Branmar Commons is intended to be a pedestrian oriented, walkable village with a high quality architectural design. It is comprised of a mixture of uses, including retail, a restaurant, a bank, a pharmacy, a coffee shop, and approximately 35 residential dwelling units, clustered around open space greens, on approximately 12 acres of land located along Silverside Road between the Shoppes of Graylyn and the Silverside Dairy Commercial Complex. Reclaimed stone from the existing Forwood Schoolhouse will be repurposed into a small scale replica of the schoolhouse on the site to create an attractive focal point for the village. The proposal would be to create a community that encourages its residents, as well as residents of the surrounding communities, to visit the village and spend a portion of their day there, enjoying and visiting (by foot) all of the amenities and benefits that the village will offer. The existing neighborhoods have been substantially buffered from the village with a combination of landscaping and natural vegetation. The buffer ranges from 60’ to 175’. All buildings will be setback a minimum of 100’ from the existing property line adjacent to the neighborhoods. Plans for the proposal, including architectural drawings, will be presented at the scheduled community meeting. A zoning change from the New Castle County Council will be required.
For additional information or questions, please contact our office at 302-395-8362.
We are currently in storm mode and we are asking everyone to please move your cars off the street. Josh has been given the OK to plow the streets in order to accommodate the rush hour traffic

Due to all the weather we’ve had over the past 12 hours we have decided to postpone the Community Picnic scheduled for today. We are working with our vendors to identify a rain date and will update everyone shortly with more details.
Thanks and stay dry,
