Today I have some links for you. First the Daily Local
Please be sure to read the comments.
Next the township facebook page. Lots of comments.
And an opinion editorial in the Daily Local
There are comments here too..............
Here is a letter I received
With the ability to use alternative sites well documented,
e.g. the Griffith Farm, and the use of eminent domain so
obviously a political “no-no”, the only rational reason left
for its use by WVT is that, once more, it serves to drive up
the fees paid to the solicitor. Pursuing eminent domain
actions are a gold mine for legal firms.
Too bad one of the results of the last election will be that
the Sienna law firm will not be replaced as primary counsel
We must not forget the changes that are proposed to the zoning
ordinance, which amongst other things will legitimize the
building of Pam Brown's house. Paid for you will remember by
$100,000 of taxpayers money. I wonder if all the brouhaha about
the show grounds is just a smokescreen to divert everyone's
attention away from these proposed changes? Anyway here is
another letter I received after Monday's meeting.
42 pages of revisions to the West Vincent Township
Zoning Ordinance are sure to adversely impact more property
values through limitations on use of one's property. Many
saw tonight the Supervisors in action. Pathetic.
Supervisors were unable to say whether the proposed changes
increase or decrease the number of non-conforming
properties. Non-conforming property = less rights for the
property owner...all while the Township washes their hands
of being accountable for answering this important
question... they decided to strike the requirement that
Towmship maintain a list of non-conformities. All they did
was play dumb, unable to decipher their own document and
still not providing the summary prepared by the Solicitor
explaining changes (i.e. before and after) to residents. All
they could say was the changes are so we're compatible with
the Phoenixville Master Plan. In this economy when people
need the best uses and highest value out of their
property...this logic benefits the residents how????? Abuse
of property rights didn't end at tonights meeting...it only
began and people need to come out next week or forever lose
more valuable property rights via the Zoning Changes!
Almost worse in my opinion than eminent domain since you
don't get fair market value...they just zone your rights
away and you're left with a battle,.
