What’s all that brush clearing about near the West Manchester Mall?

The mall is clearing some brush around Brougher Lane to increase visibility of stores.

Last week, there was a lot of brush being torn down over by Carlisle Avenue and Brougher Lane, which leads into the West Manchester Mall.

I checked in with West Manchester Township Manager Kelly Kelch last week.

He said the mall’s new owner – a Texas-based investor — is clearing the area’s unwieldy brush to increase the visibility of establishments including Walmart, Macy’s and the like.

“They figure if they clear it out, people would be more likely to see the stores and shop,” Kelch said.

What do you think? Will the visibility of the mall increase its traffic?

    I agree cleaning up the brush makes the mall more visible, I also think
    he will get a lot of those empty stores filled and last I think he will
    build somthing on those out parcels, Maybe a Red Robin or other
    Resturant.

    I don’t think that Carlisle Avenue and Brougher Lane should be cleaned only for the sake of more visitors at the mall. This should be a common thing every week. Where is the community here?
