Subdivision Plans:

Richard Leathery from 123 Red Run Church Rd, East Berlin, presented his plans to purchase property from his brother at 117 Red Run Church Rd and do an add on to his property. He will then subdivide his property making two lots. The Planning Commission advised him to attend the Supervisor’s Meeting because of building right concerns. Solicitor Sharon Myers explained the vagueness of the township’s ordinance with regards to building lots for property existing as of 1977. It states 3 lots for 0-30 acres in size. Mr. Leathery was advised to take his plans back to the Planning Commission for their approval and signatures and then bring signed plans back to the Supervisors.

Business from the Floor:

Resident Tina Gleim, who is on the Planning Commission, asked if they could have the fifth member position filled. She also asked if a legal disclaimer could be read before the Planning Commission’s meetings stated they are an advisory board and can not be legally held responsible for errors. Solicitor Sharon Myers will write something up.
