Lower Miolford Depends on Wise Land Management

Using land wisely is crucial for protecting ecosystem services.Supply of land is limited. We must find ways of using it wisely to protect the ecosystem services which we need for living & farming in our Township. Higher rock prices can bring new recycling technology and more effective mining of existing quarries. An increase in the price of land doesn't bring about an incentive to produce any more of it - because there can't be any more. But whether land is left wild or combined with agriculture, the survival of the services ecosystems provide - such as genetic resources, good quality soil, available water, pollination - is an essential underpinning the well being and economy of Lower Milford. A quarry adversely affects the ecosystem forever. We need to use our land wisely.

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.
