Zoning Board Hearings on Quarry Delayed

The Zoning Board Hearings regarding the application to build a quarry at West Mill Hil has been postponed until there is a resolution of the appeal of the Commonwealth Court of the Planning Commision decision. The Township has appealed the decision and LMRA has joined in the appeal. Since the decision has a important influence on how both parties will proceed, it was agreed to wait to see what the outcome will be before proceeding.

Final Resolution of 2004 Special Exception Application

Court rulingOn March 6, 2013, the Pa Supreme Court refused to hear the appeal of Geryville Materials regarding theZoning Board rejection of their application for a special exception to build a 268+ acre quarry at West Mill Hill Rd and Kings Highway. This ends the legal battle about the 2004 special exception application. After almost 9 years of legal wrangling and two appeals, the Zoning Board's decision was vindicated. The shame is that Geryville Materials has cost the Township and LMRA so much money to protect its ordinances against a developer that wishes to profit while harming the surrounding community!

There remains a sole application to build a smaller quarry before the Zoning Board. Hopefully, this will be resolved in Lower Milford Township's favor supporting the right of our residents to ordinances that does not ruin our quality of life.
