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 to discuss the next move. We will also need to start fund raising. There are a lot of step that need to happen before a warehouse can be built. At this point it is not even clear to me if the re-zoning is a done deal. Based on this Sentinel article the ordinance will now be advertised. This may mean the zoning change is not complete yet. I am looking into the details on that.
Please note that according to the West Pennsboro Township Zoning Ordnance section 220.3 (page 80) warehousing is a conditional use under Industrial zoning. Obtaining conditional use is a process that will involve many chances for the public to have input.
For tonight I am staying positive that this is not a done deal. A lot of things still need to happen before Allen Distribution can move forward.
Thank you once again for all the support. I will be making phone calls over the next we days. If you want to help in anyway please contact me. Please keep spreading the word. I will try to post here daily.
