Rails to Trails: The Steering Committee met on February 27, 2014. Two sections of trails are feasible at this point for development, Gregg Station and Spring Mills.

It was also mentioned that a playground committee will be forming to upgrade or replace the existing playground at the Old Gregg School.


Source Water Protection:  Nothing new to report.

Highway Occupancy Permits/Right of Way Procedures: Discussion took place.  The group felt it was a better option to issue this type of permit in house where an inspection could be done by Mr. Horner, the Roadmaster or someone who was qualified to issue such permits. There is an old form that was used. This form will be forwarded to the group and discussed and approved at the next Planning Commission meeting.



Mr. Bierly made a motion to accept the February 3, 2014 joint meeting minutes as presented. Second by Mr. Arthur. Vote in favor was unanimous.  5 – 0 Mr. Seay abstained from voting as he was not in attendance at the February 2014 meeting.


Flood Insurance: A resident called the township with concerns of an increase in his flood insurance policy. Discussion took place. The Planning Commission suggested that residents affected by this increase in their flood insurance policies should hire an engineer to survey their property to assure that they are in the flood plain. This cannot be conducted by the Township but by on a case by case basis.

PA Land Conservation Conference: This conference is held in May. There were some valuable classes that would be of relevant to issues in the Township. Planning Commission members are welcome to attend.
