At Tuesday’s meeting, the South Londonderry Township Board of Supervisors heard concerns from members of the public and heard updates on the revised zoning ordinance.

With a relatively sparse agenda, the board was notified that a draft of the revised ordinance has been sent to the county for review.

Chair Faith Bucks was absent at Tuesday’s meeting.

The draft has also been made available on the township’s website (PDF). The current zoning ordinance, adopted in November 2013, is also available online (PDF).

Supervisors also heard from members of the public, including resident Pat Krebs, who discussed the township’s recreation fund.

Partially due to recent development, the rec fund stands at $68,000. She discussed the township’s tentative plans to spend $7,000 of this fund to expand the parking lot at Campbelltown Community Park.

Krebs expressed her disagreement with this decision, both as several parking spots are being used for Iron Valley sheds and that residents are already using unofficial parking spots to visit the park.

She referenced a Hanover Engineering development plan for the park that was never completed, mentioning that the township could put funds toward that plan or develop a new plan for the park.

Another resident came forward with concerns that she was not informed of the procedure when she made a complaint to the township. She also felt a township employee was rude to her in their responses to her emails.

In other news, the supervisors:

  • Unanimously approved Ordinance 225 amending the police pension fund in compliance with the recently concluded collective bargaining agreement.
  • Unanimously agreed to the financial security reduction of two properties.
  • Unanimously agreed to Resolution 13-2023 rectifying an accounting error from 2006 and reimbursing funds from In the Net to the primary township account.
  • Heard the results of two Municibid items.
  • Heard reports from the township manager and library.
  • Unanimously agreed to approve minutes and payroll.

South Londonderry Township supervisors meet at 27 W. Market St. on the second Tuesday of each month at 7 p.m.

The next meeting will be held Nov. 14. These meetings are open to the public and do not require registration.
