1. Installation of traffic
signals in Wellington Estates:
DeLuca completed their obligation as required according to the approved site plan. The site plan approved by Bensalem and the D.O.T. (Dept of Transportation) did not require traffic signals other than where installed at Essex Drive and Street Road. In the future, a traffic signal will be installed at Gibbs Road and Rt. 13 (approved by the above agencies).
2. Stop signs and speed bumps:
DeLuca completed their obligation as required according to the approved site plan. The site plan approved by Bensalem and the D.O.T. (Dept of Transportation) does not require any additional stop signs nor does it require the installation of speed bumps.
3. Rte. 13 and Gibbs Road Intersection:
DeLuca attempted to complete this intersection and the Rt. 13 improvements over the past few years but was stopped by a local politician and by the D.O.T. DeLuca ordered the material to complete this work, had some of the material delivered to the site but was put on hold until further notice by no fault of their own. The local business owners on Rt. 13 are objecting to the closure of Rt. 13 to complete these improvements.
4. Make Wellington a Gated
DeLuca completed their obligation as required according to the approve site plan. This is not a DeLuca responsibility. If the h/o's would like to attempt to make Wellington a "gated community" it is the h/o's responsibility (I believe that this is not permitted in Bensalem) from all governmental agencies. If this was ever approved which I doubt, this will cause the increase of dues to the WHOA (professionals, consultants, engineers, street maintenance, etc.) and require additional attention/maintenance to the HOA.
5. Residential lawn maintenance:
This is not DeLuca's responsibility. The h/o need to contact Continental Property Management and the WHOA. If the WHOA does not have any approved regulations it is not DeLuca's responsibility. The h/o's can also contact Bensalem Township to report a violation to the residential ordnance.
6. Road paving:
Bensalem Township requires that all new construction communities be "final paved" upon completion of all construction within the community. DeLuca attempted to complete the final asphalt paving to Phase 1 in the past but was denied by the township. Bensalem Township is holding an escrow provided by DeLuca Homes to complete this responsibility as well as escrows to complete all improvements required by the site plan for Wellington Estates.
7. School Bus:
The Bensalem Township School district is responsible for approving all school bus transportation. The School District does not permit any school bus traffic within a community that is not dedicated. Wellington Estates is not dedicated, thus, this is not a DeLuca responsibility. Dedication to the township would be completed once construction is completed and all improvements are accepted by the township.
Our community is surrounded by areas of nature that cannot be disturbed.
