Geryville Materials Legal Effort to Force Quarry

Geryville Materials wants to built one of the biggest quarries in PA but it does not conform with Lower Milford Township's Zoning Ordinances. It has embarked on a complex, multiyear legal challenge to invalidate our ordinances. It claims our ordince is illegal and has filed a Curative Amendment to chance the ordinance to permit their destruction of West Mill Hill. It has been denied. The filed a landuse plan with the Planning Commission but it was not accepted. It filed an application to operate a quarry with DEP. It has been deferred until zoning issues are resolved. It has filed multi applications with the Zoning Board for a conditional use to operate a quarry. Two of these are still being heard by the Zoning Board.

This legal wrangling has gone on since 2004. This section explains some of the legalities and summarizes the progress of the legal attempt to destroy Lower Milford Township

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.

Legal Stuff

Legal stuffGeryville Materials has filed a Curative Amendment with the Township, several Zoning permit applications for a quarry (different sizes and inconsistencies), Planning Commision application for a land use approval, and numerous PA Court challenges and appeals. This area tries to explain what they are trying to do that will destroy Lower Milford Township for profit of a single family.

Come back regularly as we build this section to show the strategy of Geryville Materials to force the Township and its residents to accept a quarry that would destroy our quality of life.
