Mr. Arthur is researching and gathering information to share with the Planning Commission concerning this but was unable to have anything prepared for this meeting. He will bring information to the next meeting.


Mark & Doris Kauffman Minor Subdivision Plan:  The Planning Commission acknowledged receipt of the Highway Occupancy Permit for two driveways.

Privies and Chemical Toilets: There was a brief discussion about this issue in regards to the Pennsylvania Sawmill Company. Nittany Engineering mentioned the need to have an ordinance to allow privies and chemical toilets in the township. Ordinance #11-2009-3 addresses this issue.


Mr. Kunes reminded the Commission that Keystate Publishers will be attending our February Planning Commission meeting to discuss the codification. Due to the fact that they are coming to our meeting in February, discussion of the burn ordinance may be postponed until the March meeting.
