Age-targeted Development Proposed in Upper Hanover Township
Written by Candace Perry, Correspondent
2020-09-09

            Plans are being scrutinized for a new development in Upper Hanover Township.

            The Board of Supervisors reviewed proposals for a development to be accessed off Kraussdale Road, and including frontage on Gravel Pike, with members of the planning commission and representatives of the developer at their Tuesday, September 8 meeting via Zoom.

            The supervisors had numerous questions for the developer, represented by attorney Cynthia Smith. The developer is requesting an amendment to the township's zoning ordinance for an age-targeted residential overlay, which would allow for greater density than currently permitted in the ordinance. The ordinance permits 2.3 units per acre, while the two proposals from the developer are asking for either 5 or 3.8 units.

            The development would occupy a tract of approximately 40 acres, which is presently owned by Kain Wentz.  The property is zoned commercial.

            Attorney Smith said that the density is needed for the project to work.

            In other news, a Geryville Pike resident attended the meeting to voice her concerns about an East Buck Road neighbor who regularly sets off very loud fireworks on weekends.

            The resident said that there is "no control over frequency or intensity" and that the fireworks are causing "emotional distress to animals and people."

            She also stated that debris had fallen in a neighbor's yard. When the individuals setting off the fireworks were approached, they said that the fireworks were legal, and they would have the neighbor arrested for stalking.

            The residents have called the state police but were informed it was a township matter.  The question is whether the fireworks are actually the legal type and whether they are being set off over 150 feet from an occupied dwelling, which is difficult to determine without going on the neighbor's property.
