- Single-Use Plastics Ordinance: Advertised for Public Viewing
- "New Traffic Pattern" Signs on LDR
- Newtown Sewer Authority Makes Bid for Property
At the 21 November 2023 #NewtownPA Township Board of Supervisors (BOS) meeting, supervisors approved by 4-1 vote (Kyle Davis voting nay) to advertise the proposed Single-Use Plastics Ban Ordinance.
The discussion focused on revisions from previous version regarding enforcement and exemptions. It also includes comments from residents and a discussion of recyclable paper bags answering the question "Why are businesses allowed to charge customers for recyclable paper bags?"
Warning signs have appeared on Lower Dolington Rd in preparation for uncovering stop signs at the intersections of Everett Dr and Yorkshire Dr. At the 21 November 2023 BOS meeting, Township Manager Micah Lewis said the unveiling should happen the week after the Thanksgiving holiday. “We'd like to give about a week's notice with the sign boards that new traffic patterns are coming and notifications on police social media sites.” said Mr. Lewis.
At the 21 November 2023 BOS meeting, Supervisor Snyder said “at our latest Sewer Authority meeting, we voted to make an offer on land for a possible new [sewer treatment] facility.”
Recall that at a previous BOS meeting, Bucks County Joint Municipal Authority (NBCJMA) representatives presented the NBCJMA’s plan for the construction of a sewage treatment facility on Lower Silver Lake Road on a location owned by Kushner Real Estate (KRE), which has submitted a plan for a 245-unit multi-story apartment building (read “Developer Challenges Validity Of Zoning Ordinance In #NewtownPA Township”).
It appears that KRE is seriously considering the offer – it has cancelled its 29 November 2023 hearing befor the BOS regarding its challenge to Newtown zoning and has not specified any possible future hearing date!
