The new veterans cemetery for Southeastern Pennsylvania is named "Washington Crossing VA National Cemetery". The government paid $10.5 million for the 205-acre tract in Upper Makefield Township to the landowner, Toll Bros. Inc., bringing to an end a quest that lasted more than two years. The VA announced that it had selected the tract near the historic village of Dolington over a site in Chester County in JAN 06. But the project quickly became embroiled in controversy when Toll said that as a condition for selling the land to the VA, it needed approvals to build more than 200 homes nearby, more than the regional zoning ordinance allowed. With litigation threatening to stall the project, the VA upped its original offer to Toll from $7 million to $10.5 million; in exchange, Toll agreed to accept the risk that the courts could overturn its development approvals. Construction of the first phase of 60 acres will began in spring of 2009. The cemetery is planned to serve more than 580,000 veterans and their families in Philadelphia and the five-county suburban area, Lehigh County and central New Jersey. Construction will be phased in over 50 years.
