60 Bragg Hill achieves final PNDI clearance

The formal letter from the US Department of Interior was received today clearing 60 Bragg Hill from the outstanding environmental concerns posed by the State of Pennsylvania.  These state and federal government regulations are imposed to protect endangered species from being threatened by development.  Specifically, the concern for the region of Chester County where the property is located, especially due to its proximity to nearby wetlands is the Bog Turtle (clemmys muhlenbergii).  After reviewing the detailed reports and surveys submitted by Vortex Environmental, it was determined that the proposed disturbance caused by the 60 Bragg Hill project will not impact the Bog Turtle habitat.
