Fourth St. Townhouse Development on Red Hill’s Agenda
Written by Candace Perry, Correspondent

            Plans for a proposed townhome development on 4th Street in Red Hill are moving forward.

            John Kennedy, representing 189 Main Street Associates, attended the Red Hill Borough Council's Wednesday, February 10 Zoom meeting to discuss the developer's application to the borough zoning hearing board. The developers will be seeking variances regarding setbacks.

            The townhome development will consist of three buildings with 12 units, on either side of 4th Street, on the paved area behind the parking lot of the KeyBank building. The homes will probably be three-story and measure 20 feet by 50 feet.

            The property around the units will be a common area that will be managed by a homeowners' association. The paving will be gone and replaced with green space.

            Kennedy noted that parking will be accessed from alleys behind the buildings and said that there will be "plenty of parking." There was some discussion with fire marshal John Lehr and fire chief Mike Eschbach about parking on 4th Street since some of the larger pieces of fire apparatus could not make that turn with cars on the street.

            In road news, the council further discussed the parking issues at Cedar Court and 8th Street with one of the residents of Cedar Court. Council President Doris Decker stated that she was disappointed that more residents hadn't joined the meeting to express their thoughts on the difficult parking for Cedar Court and the permit-only parking on 8th Street. The council is going to work on solutions for Cedar Court and until those problems can be solved, the 8th Street parking permits will remain in place.

            In other news, the council approved an estimated cost of $3,260 to $4,260 for General Code to update the borough code. They also approved a payment of $1,152 to Riley Street Sweeping for its services.
