Frazer to consider changes to zoning ordinance

Louis B. Ruediger | Tribune-Review
Pittsburgh Mills, once valued at $190 million, is expected to fetch a small fraction of that.

Frazer officials will hold a public hearing to consider changes to the township’s zoning ordinance.

The public hearing will take place during the township’s regular supervisors meeting at 7 p.m. Oct. 2 in the municipal office at the Pittsburgh Mills mall, 592 Pittsburgh Mills Circle.

The supervisors will consider these changes:

• Revise the definition of agricultural operations to include the keeping of horses

• Permit agricultural operations in the special conservation district

• Permit agricultural operations on less than 10 acres as a conditional use in the special conservation district

• To amend the zoning hearing board regulations

• Revise the zoning map by changing the zoning district designations for some properties located along or near Crawford Run Road from residential moderate density district to residential agricultural district

Supervisor Lori Ziencik said the proposed changes came up after requests from two residents.

The first request was from a resident who wants to have horses on his property in the special conservation district, which is currently prohibited.

The second request was from a resident who wants to have his property rezoned from residential moderate density to rural agricultural.

The change would allow permitted agricultural operations, which could include farming, forestry, a single family home or a campground.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
