PA Commonwealth Court Affirms Lower Court Denial of the Curative Ammendment Appeal

Court DecisionLower Milford Township has another WIN in the higher courts!  On June 18, 2014, the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania upheld the decision made by the Lower Milford Board of Supervisors to DENY the Geryville Materials 2004 application for a Curative Amendment which would allow them to establish a quarry on 628+ acres in Lower Milford Township. The Township and the LMRA were successful in defending the denial of the Curative Amendment Application in both the Court of Common Pleas Lehigh County (June 2013) and in the Commonwealth Court of Pennsylvania (June 2014).  We suspect Geryville Materials will appeal this decision to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court.

Geryville Materials and others in the community would have us believe the quarry battle is over (based on the March court ruling on the preliminary land development plan for an 84+ acre development site on the 628 acre property) - IT IS NOT!  The latest PA court decision again proves that the fight is NOT over.  While the Planning Commission must approve the preliminary land development plan, subject to Planning Commission conditions, Geryville Materials still cannot start any development on the property.  WHY?  BECAUSE THEY DO NOT HAVE ZONING APPROVAL.  Their 2009 zoning application is still before the Township Zoning Hearing Board and they have yet to prove their case.  At the moment, these zoning hearings have been temporarily placed on hold.  On July 7, the Planning Commission will reopen discussion regarding the Land Development Plan, which per the PA Supreme court decision they will need to approve, subject to Planning Commission conditions.  Regardless of what you may hear after this meeting, keep in mind the plan is preliminary.  Geryville Materials MUST receive zoning approval for the plan to be valid, and that still has not happened.

It has been a long 10 years, but the LMRA still remains vigilant in opposing ANY quarry development requests in Lower Milford Township.  We thank you for your continued support and encourage all members to become active by attending township meetings and hearings.
