Bridgeville solicitor: Permission needed to connect Main Street, Bedner

Bridgeville Council does not have the right to connect Main Street to the proposed Bedner Farm Development in Upper St. Clair without the permission of 51 percent of the property owners abutting the street, borough solicitor Richard Ferris told council members at a meeting Monday night.
Main Street was part of the Bridgemont Plan laid out in 1946. A 10-foot gap was left, and Main Street does not go up to the Bedner property, Mr. Ferris said.
"We don't have the right to open Main Street, nor do we have the right to take action on the Lyons petition to remove the unopened section of Main Street from the borough's street plan," he said.
Mr. Ferris was referring to a resident Neil Lyons, of Pesavento Drive, who had requested council remove the unopened section of Main Street from the borough street plan. The 10-foot section is covered by grass with a tree growing in the middle.
