Double Visions, a Horsham go-go bar that the township is seeking to cut in half, has won a reprieve in its fight to keep an addition that doubled the size of the bar. A Montgomery County Court judge has denied a township request to immediately raze the 560-foot addition at 1138 Easton Rd. but left open the township's option to refile the request. The one-page order from Judge Horace A. Davenport, which was received Monday by lawyers for the township and the bar, sends the issue back to the township Zoning Hearing Board, where the dispute began two years ago. A hearing on the addition is scheduled for Oct. 12 before the zoning board.
