Public Survey Purpose

On June 28, 2016 the East Goshen Township Board of Supervisors voted to partially breach the Milltown Dam.  The dam is located on Reservoir Road, just north of West Chester Pike on a property which contains 19.78 acres. This dam is currently in operation and the impoundment is full. The dam will be partially breached (Alternative 10) as described in the March 2016 Milltown Dam Assessment and Alternative Analysis. The full report along with other information about the dam is available at

In the fall of 2016, the Township retained Simone Collins Landscape Architecture and Princeton Hydro to develop a master plan on how the area above the dam can be developed and/or utilized for public recreation purposes and/or open space, after the dam has been partially breached.

The consultants have been asked by the Township to work with the community to determine the most desirable and advantageous use or uses for the areas above the dam. The Township has appointed a citizen committee to work with the consultants. A series of four (4) public meetings are being held to help determine the master plan design.

Toward that end, Simone Collins will administer a series of three public opinion surveys about the master plan for the area above the dam.

This is survey #3 intended to gather opinions about the draft master plan presented at the March 22nd Public Meeting.   This survey will be available until May 24th, 2017. The draft plan will be available at the above link for a 60-day review period. Please email any written comments you have concerning the Draft Plan to the Township Manager, Rick Smith at:

The plan should be reviewed and printed prior to responding to this survey. You will need to look at the plan while you respond to the survey. We also recommend that you view the entire PowerPoint presentation that can be found at the following link:

The survey is divided into two parts.

Part 1: General Information
Part 2: Questions pertaining to the Draft Master Plan.

This survey will be available until May 24, 2017.

Results of this survey will be considered, along with other information obtained in public and committee meetings. This survey will require less than 10 minutes to complete.
