Now that the Redevelopment Plan and Homeless Assistance Submission for NAS-JRB Willow Grove Off-site Housing and Jacksonville Road have been completed, the Horsham Township Authority for NAS-JRB (HLRA) has been preparing for the transfer of both properties from the Navy later in 2012.
The Redevelopment Plan called for:
Shenandoah Woods Housing
The Bucks County Redevelopment Authority is expected to obtain the property through a negotiated sale with the Navy and redevelop the area into a mix of 113 single-family homes and twins homes. Other parts of the plan involve Warminster Township obtaining 25 acres of woodlands at the south portion of the property that would be used partially for a storm water retention facility. The Aldie Foundation, a drug and alcohol counseling center, may receive title to 20 townhouse units in Shenandoah Woods, via a "no-cost homeless assistance conveyance," which allows surplus military property to be transferred for free to qualified agencies or an accommodation payment may be paid to the Aldie Foundation in lieu of conveyance of the Shenandoah Woods property to assist the homeless in Bucks and/or Montgomery Counties in accordance with the principles of Aldie's NOI.
The Navy issued the Finding of Suitability to Transfer (FOST), NAS-JRB Willow Grove Shenandoah Woods Housing Complex, Warminster, PA in March, 2012. The Navy is currently working on other documents which will allow them to transfer the property in accordance with the Redevelopment Plan
Jacksonville Road Housing
The Bucks County Housing Group will receive the Jacksonville Road land through a no-cost homeless assistance conveyance. The group plans to demolish the six homes in Ivyland and construct a new corporate headquarters.
The Navy issued the Finding of Suitability to Transfer (FOST), NAS-JRB Willow Grove Jacksonville Road Housing, Ivyland Borough, Warminster, PA in January, 2012. The Navy is currently working on other documents which will allow them to transfer the property in accordance with the Redevelopment Plan
