Ordnance 2016-02 was signed

The Supervisors signed Ordnance 2016-02 at tonight’s meeting.  The public was allowed to talk tonight however it was clear that the supervisors were not listening. Especially when one resident said thank you at the end of his statement and a supervisor didn’t even realize the resident finished speaking. I can’t remember a clear answer to …

Pre-Meeting Update

I received no response from any of the supervisors when I asked for an explanation of their decision.  The response from the county planning commission wasn’t acceptable in my opinion.  The decision was based on past history with the township, apparently re-zoning these properties has been the townships plan for years.  This was not the opinion …

Request for Help

I am making a plea for help.  The zoning change still needs to be finalized.  The last meeting was to establish an ordnance now the ordnance needs to be approved.  I believe this will happen at the next Supervisor meeting on July 25th at 6:00.  This has not been posted on the Township website yet. …

Calendar Added to WPTOB

I added a calendar tab to the blog.  I will be adding meeting times for the local meetings.

528 vs 14

If you were to see a sports score of 528 to 14 would you say the team were evenly matched?  I would think one side had a clear advantage.  I started putting a time line together to show when things happened leading up to the zoning hearing and vote.  Check out the Warehouse Time Line …

Representatives? Not in my opinion

I updated some links on the reference tab tonight.  I have been reading through meeting minutes.  What a joke!  People claim things but I can’t back them up.  I have been trying to compare meeting minutes for the different organizations that are involved in the possible warehouse project but the information does not add up. …

Sausages

Laws are like sausages, it is better not to see them being made. Otto von Bismarck I am now thinking the same applies to local government.  The more I dig and research the more I find that disgusts me.  The deck is stacked against the citizens when a well organized company wants to walk all …

Thank You

The last 24 hours have been a whirl wind.  After the vote last night I meet a lot of very nice people in the parking lot.  I collected a few names and gave my information to a lot of people.  Today offers of help started coming in.  We will be working to organize a meeting …

I have not yet begun to fight

As a former sailor (ET2(SS) Smith, Karl)  I am choosing to quote John Paul Jones – “I have not yet begun to fight” The West Pennsboro Township Supervisors voted to re-zone tonight.  The vote was unanimous to rezone. Re-zoning is the first step to allow Allen Distribution to build two warehouses in a residential area. …
