Subdivision Plans:

James Mummert with Hanover Land Services presented updated information on the Land Development Plans for the Lesh property at 776 Baker’s Watering Trough Rd. There was a discussion on the current driveway size, location and blacktop required. Steven Lesh stated there should be no more traffic than any residential use with only 5-10 cars per day. The Supervisors are currently not requiring blacktop but if dust becomes a problem and neighbors complain something will need to be done. Supervisor Dan McGregor suggested the use of millings. The Supervisors are ok with the use of a porta-potty instead of a restroom with a holding tank. A surety bond is required in the amount of $66,231.00. Solicitor Myers said she will need to approve the bond. It must include a 60-day evergreen clause in it. Supervisor Jeff Propps questioned the use if there would be any kind of shows held on the property . The Lesh’ stated no, only boarding horses with an area for them to ride. The Supervisors stressed the importance of not changing the use without coming to the Township first! Supervisor Dan McGregor made a motion for conditional approval after E & S permits and bond approval are met. Supervisor Harlen Anderson, Jr. seconded the motion.
