Economy – A new housing development is coming to the Borough.
At a recent meeting, the District Council agreed to approve Phase 1 of the Lakeside Village Courtyard.
Proposed by Mars-based Weaver Homes, the development is approximately 82 acres on Pfaff Road and will consist of 130 single-family homes and a clubhouse. The house has no age limit and pets are allowed.
As part of the proposed development, there would be a new access point on Conway Wallroads Road, sidewalks would exist on both sides of the street, and sewage and clean water would be provided by existing suppliers in the area.
Economic manager Randy S. Kankur said the developer is expected to break ground this year and the full project will be in various phases broken down over the next few years.

Kelly Dunn, Weaver’s vice president of sales and marketing, said Weaver Homes is partnering with the Epcon community, making it the first and 13th community in Beaver County.
She said each unit has an owner suite on the first floor, with the owner choosing between ranch-style or upstairs.
Dunn said it will be a “low-maintenance community,” meaning that mowing, mulching and snow removal will be done for the owners.
The Community Central Clubhouse features a heated pool, fitness center, and a large common area with 24/7 kitchen and entertainment space that can be rented out for private parties.
Dunn said the units are title-only, not rented or leased, with each owner owning their own parcel of land and being able to customize floor plans, with some units having basements. .
She said the community is built around a lake, stocked for fishing and available for activities like canoeing and paddleboarding.
Weaver hopes to sell its first home site in early 2023, Dunn said.
She said Weaver chose the area on economy because of its space and access to the lake, and the relatively close proximity of the economy as in the Cranberry Township and Wexford areas.
