New Hope Borough Council Tuesday night viewed a presentation by Logan Inn Owner Frank Cretella and Architect Ralph Fey depicting the latest version of their “Cannon Square” redevelopment project at 10 W. Ferry St. in New Hope.
“Cannon Square” currently consists of a small grassy area, a large pine tree used for the borough’s Christmas festivities, and an old cannon with a stack of oversized balls. The complex overhaul would create more outdoor table seating for the Logan Inn, some public seating, and involve the re-positioning of the tree and cannon.
The “square” is currently a triangle formed by the split of West Ferry Street as it approaches South Main Street into two, two-lane roadways. The project would see the triangle drawn closer to the Logan Inn, along with the elimination of the northern branch of West Ferry Street at South Main Street — both of which are owned by the Logan Inn.
Cretella is currently requesting amendments to conditions attached to five variances granted by the Zoning Hearing Board on April 22, 2016.
Borough Council rendered no final judgment on the project Tuesday evening, and it continues through the requisite approval process until an official vote, which sounds like it will occur sooner than later.

Fey Architects, provide a glimpse of the project as currently proposed, so now is the time to let your voice be heard or get your questions answered by New Hope Borough Council.
