Apartment Development Approved for WAC Site
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Design Standards Committee has conceptually approved, with two resident members dissenting, the building of an apartment complex on the 9.6 acre former WAC site.

Details of the construction were not given to the Committee, but land use restrictions for the property would limit the builidng to not more than four stories high. The apartment complex would be two and three bedroom units. Construction could begin as early as January. The county Appraisal District has not recorded a sale of the property yet, so the new owner is unknown.At its meeting Wednesday, the Township Board abandoned parts of the existing bike path that went in front of the WAC. It will be replaced by a new path closer to Winterberry Place.

Fall Farmer's Market Every Saturday
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The market is open every Saturday 8 AM to NOON during our Fall Market Season of October 2 to December 11, 2010. The market is located in the Grogan's Mill Village Center parking lot near Randall's.

Open rain or shine and on Thanksgiving weekend. All local vendors offering sustainably grown & organically grown produce, grass fed beef, Texas handmade artisan cheeses, goat cheese, coffee, local honey, breads & pastries, no sugar added baked goods, pancake mixes, marshmallows & hot cocoa mixes, prepared tamales, Indian cuisine & Mediterranean food, natural & goat milk bath sundries, beautiful orchids, olive trees and olive oil. There is something for everyone.
Upgrades for Sawmill Park
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
The Townhip has voted to spend $500,000 on upgrading Sawmill Park next year. Exact plans have not been finalized but money will probably go to both the pool and sports fields.

We have heard from some residents, but would like to hear more. If you have ideas on what you would like to see done please let us know by reply email or comment on the Grogan's Mill Facebook page.

So you can see the area we have to work with, here is a satellite view of Sawmill Park.
