According to information provided by Secretary Jill Seymour, Lowhill Township supervisors reviewed the East Penn Self-Storage land development plan during their Feb. 7 meeting.

The final plan for 3176 Route 100 was dated May 5, 2017, but it was revised on Oct. 29, 2018.

Board Chairman Richard Hughes made a motion to review the final plan. Vice Chairman Buddy Wessner seconded the motion.

During the review, Ryan Christman of Keystone Consulting Engineers, told the board the applicant had addressed all the outstanding issues for the land development plan.

Hughes made a motion to approve the final plan. Supervisor Robb Werley seconded it.

Wessner abstained from voting as he has a business relationship with the owner.

Township Administrator Brian Carl then discussed the results of the zoning hearing board.

Adams Outdoor Advertising was denied the challenge of Lowhill’s zoning ordinance. Also, the KOA campground was granted a variance for a single family home.
