The Kennett Pike Association, Inc. was formed in 1957 and incorporated in 1961 to assure the orderly development, preservation of values and beauty indigenous to Christiana Hundred and areas adjacent to Rt. 52 south of Rt.1 near Longwood, Pennsylvania. Governed by a volunteer board of trustees, and headed by officers elected every two years, the association represents the views of members who have homes and businesses in the area northwest of the city of Wilmington between the Red Clay and Brandywine Creeks and in neighboring townships in Pennsylvania.
The K.P.A. maintains close liaison with elected officials and various agencies throughout New Castle County and neighboring Pennsylvania. We monitor zoning changes, variances and proposed legislation in an effort to keep our constituents aware of their changing environment. We also attend public hearings whenever necessary to express the views of our members.
The K.P.A. functions as an umbrella organization for other civic groups within the area we represent. In a crisis, all of these groups can look to the K.P.A. for help. We maintain an office and staff and have the public relations and legal resources to react quickly should those services be needed.Learn more about development plans in Greenville, latest articles added October 6th.
