Upper Hanover Supervisors Hear Concerns from Neighbors of Powderbourne
Written by Candace Perry, Correspondent

            Pellets from the shooting range at Powderbourne Gun Club have long been an issue for some neighbors.  The Upper Hanover Board of Supervisors is seeking solutions.

            Ridge Way residents attended the township's regular meeting on Tuesday, February 11, to ask for updates on progress on the matter.

            Township solicitor Joseph Bresnan noted that the issue had been on the agenda for the previous evening's workshop meeting, and that citizens could comment but not ask questions at Tuesday's meeting, since the topic was not on the agenda.

            He said that technical criteria of how to prevent pellets from reaching neighboring properties had been covered Monday evening.

            Supervisor Ben Fiorito visited the Brenenborg and Gryshuk properties, adjacent to Powderbourne, on January 15, and asked if the situation had remained the same since then.

            Firorito recommended that the neighbors call the township whenever incidents occur, so that the office can keep a log.

            Fiorito said, "It is our intent to work with the gun club and draw up some restrictions. We want to know if that has a positive effect."

            Bresnan said that the township was already taking measures to assist the neighbors. "We have a proposal to reduce the hot load, "he stated, and that the club would be adding signage with rules and regulations.

            "We are working to resolve the problem and we don't have a resolution as yet," he added.

            In zoning news, Bresnan conducted a public conditional use hearing for the application of William Chrisman to build a 40x60 pole barn at the end of his driveway at his property on Montgomery Avenue. The application was approved.

            In parks news, township manager Stan Seitzinger reported that the township had received only one informal bid on the bench shelter/dugout project for Camelot Park. The bid came in at $38,463, well above the target figure of $20,000. The supervisors rejected the bid and decided to discuss it at next month's workshop meeting.
