Community Meetings on Tap for Lansdale
Lansdale officials are holding two community meetings next week about a major road improvement project. The Wood-Vine Street Connector will improve traffic flow downtown by giving motorists another way of getting around other than Broad and Main Streets. The first meeting is scheduled in Borough Hall at 1:30 Monday afternoon. The second meeting is in the same place starting at 6:30 on Thursday evening. Ground was broken on the project last month. The cost of construction will be covered in its entirety by a $3,500,000 state grant.
Public Hearing Continued in Montgomeryville
The Montgomery Township Supervisors have approved an indefinite continuance for a conditional use hearing on a 135-foot cell phone tower proposed near Upper State Road and Bethlehem Pike. The telecom company that wants to build the structure also needs a variance from the Zoning Hearing Board and the township supervisors have gone on record opposing any relief. The continuance will give both parties an opportunity to work out their differences. Township officicials say the zoning hearing board issue revolves around the placement and dimensions of equipment structures on the ground. The hearing before the zoning board has also been continued indefinitely.
