NOTICE OF PUBLIC HEARING

CONCERNING AMENDMENTS

TO THE MILLCREEK TOWNSHIP ZONING ORDINANCE

            NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN by the Board of Supervisors of Millcreek Township, Lebanon County, Pennsylvania, that it will meet in public session at the Millcreek Township Municipal Building, 81 East Alumni Avenue, Newmanstown, Pennsylvania, 17073, on Wednesday, June 10, 2020, at 7:00 p.m., prevailing time, to conduct a hearing on Millcreek Township proposed Ordinance No. 061020.  The title of proposed Ordinance No. 061020 is as follows:

AN ORDINANCE REQUIRING ALL PERSONS, PARTNERSHIPS, BUSINESSES, AND CORPORATIONS TO OBTAIN A PERMIT FOR ANY CONSTRUCTION OR DEVELOPMENT; PROVIDING FOR THE ISSUANCE OF SUCH PERMITS; SETTING FORTH CERTAIN MINIMUM REQUIREMENTS FOR NEW CONSTRUCTION AND DEVELOPMENT WITHIN AREAS OF THE Township of Millcreek WHICH ARE SUBJECT TO FLOODING; AND ESTABLISHING PENALTIES FOR ANY PERSONS WHO FAIL, OR REFUSE TO COMPLY WITH, THE REQUIREMENTS OR PROVISIONS OF THIS ORDINANCE.

The particular nature of the matters to be considered at the hearing are proposed amendments to the text of the Millcreek Township Zoning Ordinance.  These amendments repeal the text of Article 14, GFP–General Floodplain District and replace it with new Article 14–Floodplain District regulations that meet the new national flood insurance program minimum requirements to ensure continued participation by the Millcreek Township community in the National Flood Insurance Program.  These amendments also amend the Millcreek Township Zoning Map by making changes in the Floodplain District boundaries consistent with the updated flood hazard maps prepared by FEMA.

Copies of the proposed ordinance and copies of the proposed amended zoning map may be examined without charge or may be obtained for the cost thereof at the Millcreek Township Municipal Building, 81 East Alumni Avenue, Newmanstown, Pennsylvania, 17073, between the hours of 7:30 a.m. and 3:30 p.m., prevailing time, Monday through Friday, excluding holidays.  Copies of these documents may also be viewed on the Millcreek Township website at millcreektownship.info.

As we approach the winter season, our road crew has begun preparations for the possible impending snow and ice that winter brings.  Please remember our policies remain the same: Plowing – priority one roads first and all other roads as time and conditions permit.  However, if an emergency situation occurs, the Lebanon Co. dispatch can alert the road crews, and we will do everything in our power to assist the fire company or ambulance in getting to your area as quickly as possible. If you live in the village of Newmanstown or Newburg Village Development and have available off-street parking, the road department would suggest that during a snowstorm you park your vehicles and any recreational vehicles off-street,  allowing them to plow closer to the curbs.  This will allow safer and more convenient parking along the streets after the snow has ended. 

Priority 1 Roads: A) State Rd. 2021 from intersection with State Rd. 2015 & PA Route 897; B) State Rd. 2015 from intersection with PA Route 419 & continuing into Kleinfeltersville; C) State Rd. 2023 from intersection of PA Route 419 & S. Sheridan Rd. to the end of State Rd. 632 S. Mountain Rd.; D) T610 (Richland Rd.); E) T362 (Stricklerstown Rd.; F) All snow emergency routes. 

Priority 2 Roads: A) State Rd. 2014 from the intersection with N. Sheridan Rd. & N. Fort Zellers Rd. to the Berks County line; B) North & South Fort Zellers Rd.; C) T361 (E. & W. Bethany Rd.); D) T315 (Cocalico Rd.); E) T311 (E. & W. Texter Mission Rd.); F) T313 (Texter Mountain Rd.); G) T317 (Eagles Peak Rd.); H) T364 (Stricklerstown Loop Rd.); I) T310 (Round Barn Rd.); J) T367 (E. & W. Alumni Ave.);

Priority 3 Roads: A) T612 (Krumstown Rd.); B) T620 (Kalbach Rd.); C) T363 (Hogeland Rd.); D) T604 (Dierwechter Rd.); E) T355 (Hackman Rd.); F) T600 (Chapel Rd.); G) T601 (Perri Ave.) & T603 (Howam St.); H)

T366 (Cardinal Rd.) & T368 (Cherry Ln.); I) T620 (Stouchsburg Rd.); J) T640 (Sonnens Rd.); K) T650 (Newburg Dr.); L) T651 (Treeline Dr.); M) T652 (Village Dr.); N) T655 (Edgemont Lane); O) T449 (Garden Drive); P) T653 (Abbey Lane); Q) T654 (Progress Dr. );  R)  T645 (Central Dr.); S) T647 (Cottage Ln.); T) T660 (Morgan Drive); U) T665 (Lester Lane); V) T633 (Sweetwater Lane); W) T661 (Hillside Dr.) & T662 (Eagle View Dr.).

Snow Emergency RoutesMain St., Sheridan Rd., Memorial Blvd., Parish Ave., Park Dr., Newburg Dr., Treeline Dr., Abbey Ln., Village Dr., Central Dr., Cottage Ln., Garden Dr., Meadow Dr., Overlook Ln., Sweetwater Ln., and parts of the following streets:  Edgemont Ln., Eagle View Dr., and Hillside Dr. are posted as snow emergency routes.  Please try to remove vehicles as soon as possible when a snow emergency is declared. It is very important to have vehicles removed from Snow Emergency routes so that the state and township road crews may do their jobs more quickly and efficiently. Vehicles not removed may be subject to a fine, and may be towed at your expense.  Radio stations WLBR and WQIC 100 FM are notified when a snow emergency is declared and should be listened to during any winter storm. TV Stations: NBC 8, ABC 27 Snow watch and CBS 21.

Sidewalksa pathway of not less than 30″ must be cleared within 24 hours after the end of a winter storm.  If you or one of your neighbors leave the township for the winter, or are physically unable to clear your sidewalks please make arrangements to have them cleared for you by someone reliable.

Fire hydrantsmay not be covered with snow or ice, nor may any snow or ice removed from sidewalks or driveways be placed on the street or roadway.  This action could result in fines.

Please also remember, snow plow drivers do not intentionally  push snow into your driveways after you’ve cleared it, but the snow will obviously go back into any available openings in the path of the plow.  It is the drivers responsibility to make the roadways as safe as possible.

     We thank you for your continued patience and cooperation during the upcoming winter season!       ˆ
