Citizen Requests


Liaison Reports:

Ray Hankinson stated that he inspected a home in Spring Mills and it was approved for a daycare. A pole building on Harter/Reeder Roads was placed close to the residence, but it does fall within guidelines. Jodon's Sporting Goods property will be auctioned on April 23. A possible bidder asked if there were any Historic District ramifications on this property. Linda Marshall will research and get back to Ray.



Current Planning:

Linda Marshall discussed additional revisions to the Housing Policies and Procedures manual. Do the Gregg Township Supervisors want the Planning Commission to work on the Property Maintenance Ordinance?

Sue Hannigan, Assistant Director, is summarizing all that is going on in the county that pertains to Marcellus Shale. Information is on the County's website.

Julie Mason distributed a list of underutilized and vacant buildings located in Gregg Township. Julie will update the list and email it to Linda Marshall for the Centre County Office of Planning and Community Development. This will help the County match companies' requirements with what is available.

Chris Kunes has met with three students that will be working on the conservation project. They will present at least three different options. One of which will combine the two properties. Chris will email the date and time of the presentations to the Planning Commission.
