A Coaldale Borough subdivision plan was reviewed by the Schuylkill Planning Commission at its monthly meeting held Wednesday evening at the courthouse in Pottsville.
The borough proposes a two lot subvidsion, taking an existing lot of 4.227 acres and dividing it into two lots, with the first lot to be 1.829 acres and second lot to be 2.3908 acxres located on Third Street. The lots are vacant. The planning board after its review ruled the tax parcel number must first be certified by the Schuylkill County Assessment Bureau prior to recording in the Recorder of Deeds Office at the courthouse. Also, the zoning district needs to be shown on the plan and since the lots on this subdivision front State Route 209 a highway occupancy permit application must be submitted to PennDOT for review priior to any construction.
The annexation plan submitted by Kevin J. and Cynthia Greenaway, New Philadelphia, for 2.831 acres located in R2 District, (Medium Density Residential) received conditional approval because the subdivision incorrently identifies the owner of the parcel. Once the correction is made the plan will be approved.
After a long and critical debate concerning the manner the plans have been submitted with revisions needed, the planning commission granted Eagle Rock Resorts Company, Hazle Township, Luzerne County, an extension until the March meeting to complete its subdivision plans for four subdivisions, Hidden Forest - Phase One, located in North Union Township; Hidden Forest - Phase Two and Three, located partly in North Union and partly in East Union townships and AW South Subdivision, located in North Union Township.
Two subdivisions were given final approval. Ruth Brown Minor Subdivision, Tremont, subdivide 4.417 acres for a single family residential and James M. and Elaine A. Rodichok, Porter Township, to convert 53.05 acres for agricultural use.
Among the projects reviewed were the following:
ARTEC, Inc., Rush Township, is submiting an application to DEP (Department of Environmental Protection) for a renewal of an individual NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) permit to cover stormwater discharges associated with industrial activities.
