As the parties involved in the continued lawsuits and appeals await court decisions regarding the latest in the 3rd Street Project, the board president of Broomalls Lake Country Club says its a matter of 4 feet that is now holding the project up. In September 2012, the majority of council voted to approve a one-lane, one-way roadway over the dam and within two weeks of the vote Broomall's Lake Country Club filed a contempt of court petition saying council violated a three-way agreement between BLCC, the borough and Delaware County. In February 2013, instead of the court ruling on the petition, the judge threw out the original May 2011 three-way stipulation agreement, which required the borough to design, build and pay for the project.

The 3rd Street Project continues to be in 'litigation limbo,' Media Borough president says.
Media Borough Council President Brian Hall gave a brief update as to the status or holding pattern the 3rd Street Project is currently in. In September 2012, after eight months, the majority of council voted to approve a one-lane, one-way roadway over the dam and within two weeks of the vote Broomall's Lake Country Club filed a contempt of court petition saying council violated a three-way agreement between BLCC, the borough and Delaware County, Hall said at council's Thursday meeting. "(BLCC) was asking the court to force the borough to build a two-lane, two-way road on top of Broomall's dam," Hall said. In February 2013, instead of the court ruling on the petition, the judge threw out the original May 2011 three-way stipulation agreement…
