POTTSTOWN PA – A proposal being considered by the Upper Pottsgrove Township Board of Commissioners would create future changes to portions of North State Street and Upland Square Drive, and open a new access route to properties near the drive and Route 100.
A pubic hearing on the plan, with the potential of board action to immediately follow, will be held next Monday (Oct. 15, 2012) at 7:30 p.m. during the commissioners’ meeting in the municipal building, 1409 Farmington Ave. A legal advertisement announcing the hearing was published Friday (Oct. 5). The text of the notice follows:
NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the Upper Pottsgrove Township Board of Commissioners will hold a public hearing on Monday, October 15, 2012, at 7:30 p.m., during the course of its regular Board of Commissioner meeting, to begin at 7:00 p.m., at the Upper Pottsgrove Township Municipal Building, 1409 Farmington Avenue, Upper Pottsgrove Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, to consider vacating 36,714 square feet of N. State Street, located near Route 100 and Upland Square Drive.
The proposal, if approved, would ultimately result in the construction of a cul-de-sac to be owned and maintained by Upper Pottsgrove Township on N. State Street, an existing Township road, in a vicinity of 1097 N. State Street. Access to properties south of the proposed cul-de-sac would be achieved through private drive to be constructed from Upland Square Drive.
At the time of the hearing all interested parties may appear and be heard. At the conclusion of the hearing, the Board of Commissioners intend to enact an ordinance vacating and closing to public use the above described portion of N. State Street.
A complete copy of the proposed Ordinance has been provided to The Mercury, as well as, the Montgomery County Law Library and is available for public inspection at the Upper Pottsgrove Township Municipal Building, 1409 Farmington Avenue, Upper Pottsgrove Township, Montgomery County, Pennsylvania.
