Frazer to consider changes to zoning ordinance
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.
