Some 30 residents from the Mink Estate area attended last week's Upper Milford supervisors meeting to voice concerns about a sketch plan for some 200 townhouses and twin homes on the Kohler tract, 4475 Mill Road.
The residents questioned what the impact of the plan, presented by Kay Builders, would have on, among other things, traffic and drainage.
Supervisors stressed the proposal is only a sketch plan and there is a long way to go before any action may be taken.
"There are a lot of unanswered questions," supervisors Chairman George DeVault said.

Upper Milford supervisors, as they reviewed their April 8 meeting with representatives from the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation during last week's regular meeting, made clear they are not entirely satisfied with the agency's responses to their concerns.
In addition to a number of specific issues, they emphasized they are not happy with the lack of action regarding the stress placed on township roads by ever-increasing traffic as a result of continued development.
For nearly two hours last week, Upper Milford supervisors grilled Pennsylvania Department of Transportation officials about a variety of issues related to the agency's performance in the township.

Upper Milford supervisor Robert Sentner delivered a blistering attack on the Pennsylvania Department of Transportation during supervisors' March 19 meeting.
From potholes along Route 29 to a lack of response to township officials' concerns about safety at the intersection of Cedar Crest Boulevard and Indian Creek Road, Sentner said the state agency has failed to provide adequate service to the township, not only during recent snowstorms, but long before.

Some Upper Milford residents are concerned and confused by changes by Service Electric to their cable television service, township supervisors said at the Feb. 19 meeting.
Service Electric, the township's exclusive cable provider, is going totally digital and has informed customers they need a new box to access their cable. The box for the first television in a household is free, but customers must pay for a box for each additional television.
"And they should," supervisor Robert Sentner said.
