A Plan To Bar Building

Posted: September 25, 1988

A resident of Schuylkill Township came before the township Planning

Commission Wednesday night with a plan to nip any unwanted development near his property in the bud.

Robert Gore, who has lived in the township for two years, presented a sketch plan showing the purchase of a strip of land that adjoins his 5.6-acre property on Clothier Springs Road.

"It is written into the deed that we will not develop the land as long as they are still living," Robert Gore said. Gore is buying the property from L.E. Narbonne for an undisclosed amount.

"I think that point is pretty academic because we're buying the property

from them for the express purpose of not doing any development in that area ever.

"We like the land, and we want to keep it the way it is," Gore said.

The Planning Commission voted, 5-0, to approve the plan. It will be forwarded to the township engineering consultant, SMC Martin.

In other business, the commission approved a sketch plan submitted by member James Reed to subdivide a 6-acre property he owns on Valley Park Road. Reed abstained from voting. His plan will be forwarded to SMC Martin.
