Supervisor’s Meeting – March 16, 2016

Upper Nazareth Supervisor’s Meeting – March 16, 2016


Community Concerns

A member of the Planning Committee lodged a complaint about not being informed of the proposal for the new Asphalt Plant on Tatamy Road. If the Planning Committee does not address plans within 90 days, by law they are automatically approved and the township loses the ability to request changes.

This week a high school student was hit by a car at the corner of 5th Street and Friedenstahl Avenue.

The Supervisors failed to provide the public with paper copies of the Treasurer’s Report. They pledged to do so next time.

In order to get the HOP (High Occupancy Permit) from PennDOT to begin the construction of the light at Friedenstahl Avenue, Hoch Street will have to become a One Way street, going north. Several Hoch Street residents attended and commented on the change.

  • This ordinance will be discussed at the April 6th
