Zoning

The Board adopted Ordinances 74 and 75 regarding a change to the Zoning Ordinance map. Additionally, amended sections 509.1 and 708.2 now require land owners who are applying for a public hearing before the Zoning Hearing Board to provide a list of adjoining property owners and their addresses for public notice of the hearing during the application process.

Towpath

The Board adopted Ordinance 76 regarding the congested traffic due to eagle watching along SR 4006, Towpath Road.

Due to the complaints brought to the Board in March, the Ordinance now provides for regulation and police enforcement (ticketing) of stopping, standing and parking of vehicles that block the roadway to local traffic.

911 signs

Ordinance 78 was adopted by the Board which amends certain portions of Section 4 - Structure Number Signs Placement of the Lackawaxen Township Address and Sign Ordinance for the 911 emergency call system.

Under Section 7, it now requires that the house 911 number must be installed prior to obtaining a building permit.

Political & stop signs

The newly adopted Ordinance 75 amends the Section 504.15 - Political Signs, of the Zoning Ordinance to revise certain restrictions on the permitting of political signs.

Lastly, the Board tabled Ordinance 77, establishing a four-way stop sign at the intersection of Westcolang and Karl Hope Blvd., and Falling Water Blvd.

With Supervisor Stuart absent, Supervisors Gelderman and Krochta were split on the vote, leading to a tie. Gelderman was against the stop sign and Krochta was for it.

The Ordinance will be brought to the table during May’s Business meeting.

All of the above Ordinances are available for review at the Municipal Building during regular work hours.
