There was a public hearing among all the CJER townships held at the West End Fire Company on May 1 to consider the adoption of the 2014 Zoning and SALDO amendments, as well as the official map.

At that hearing, all three Eldred Township supervisors were present and voted unanimously for the adoption of the amendment ordinances and official map. The zoning ordinance became Ordinance 2014-1 and the SALDO Ordinance became 2014-2. Additionally, the other three townships adopted their own individual amendments.

Eldred Supervisor and secretary Sharon Solt reported that the Monroe County Planning Commission has been working to update the Monroe County 2020 Comprehensive Plan with the proposed Monroe County 2030 Comprehensive Plan, Economic Development Implementation Plan and the Open Space, Greenway and Recreation Plan.

They have submitted these plans to the Monroe County Commissioners for review. There is a 45-day review period. Anyone who wants to review and comment on the documents may do so by viewing them on the Monroe County website, www.co.monroe.pa.us. The township will list all the information and steps needed on the township's site, www.eldredtwp.org, as well as send out emails to anyone who has provided their email address.
