The Newtown Township Board of Supervisors have included many issues on their November 26th meeting agenda. At their previous meeting, township officials said that a budget workshop would begin at 6:30 p.m. on Monday, Nov. 26, at the township building. Finally, Newtown residents should get some idea about their 2013 township taxes. This will be followed at 7:30 p.m. by the regular meeting of the Board of Supervisors. Among the issues on the agenda:
- Authorize a settlement agreement – Dennis Anderson resignation. Looks like the residents of Newtown Township will finally find out what has happened with Chief Anderson. This mystery will finally be solved.
- A discussion of the CR Commercial Residential Zoning District Amendment. This amendment,which was the topic of discussion at the last supervisors’ meeting, is on the agenda again.
- A public hearing for Melmark, Inc. Melmark seeks an amendment to existing conditional uses in a Residential District and uses permitted in Steep Slope. Melmark wishes to build in excess of three stories or 35 feet. They seek allowance for limited construction of improvements in steep and very step slope. Also noted is a change in operation of non profit school with residential clientele and building/site improvements. It would appear as though Melmark is proposing to expand the buildings on their property. Those who live near Melmark as well as all other residents should, I believe,take note of this expansion.
- An update on the sale of the Wyola School which is set to be auctioned at 10 a.m. on November 26th at the township building. Residents will find out who bought this historical treasure.
The full draft agenda for the meeting is posted on Newtown Township’s website. With so many important items on the agenda and others that have may not have been noted on the agenda, I hope the hundreds of residents that attended the last supervisors’ meeting will attend again.
Enjoy the holiday weekend and come out to the meeting on Monday night.
