CITIZEN COMMENTS NOT ON THE AGENDA  No comments at this time.


Board of Supervisors Report:  Mr. Bierly reviewed the April 2016 Board of Supervisors meeting minutes.  

Zoning Officers Report:  Mr. Lesniak reviewed his report with the planning commission. He accepted a bid from a company from Woodward who is willing to do the clean up on Tool Shed Lane for $4200. They will begin work on May 3, 2016. 



Stephen L app - Old Skating Rink Property (271 Brush Mountain Road):  Mr. Lapp addressed the planning commission and asked if our zoning ordinance would allow him to build horse barns on this property. Previously it was a skating rink, most recently it was used as a church.  Mr. Lesniak said that after 180 day of non-use,  a property reverts back to the original zoning which is agriculture. Discussion took place. Mr. Arthur made motion to allow the construction of farm related portable structures on 271 Brush Mountain Road as a conditional use , zoning ordinance 304.C.5 farm related sales and service operations, with conditions defined. Second by Mr. Seay. Mr. Kunes noted that conditions would be set and brought forward by the Planning Commission. Vote in favor was unanimous. 6 - 0  Mr. Kunes said the owners would need to file with the Board of Supervisors  for a conditional use hearing. This would have to happen  when they become the owner of the property or the current owner would have to apply.  The planning commission would recommend to the board to allow this type of use on that parcel with conditions as suggested by the Planning Commission.   

Approval of Meeting Minutes:  Ms. Miller made a motion to approve the April 4, 2016 Planning Commission organizational meeting minutes.  Second by Mr. Bierly. No further discussion. Vote in favor was unanimous.6  – 0

Centre County Land Use Maps: Liz Luse from the Centre County Planning Office discussed the review of the township's land use maps . The County has asked the township to review these maps for the update of their comprehensive plan. She is also specifically asking the township to look ahead at land use in the next ten years and make any changes they see projected.  Discussion took place. The PC agreed to take the current 2014 map and overlay it with the current zoning map as a guide to look ahead for the ten year review.  Ms. Luse will take these suggestions and create a future land use map.
