Subdivision given another time extension
Another time extension for the Vernon L. Frable minor subdivision plan was before the Polk Township supervisors at this week's meeting. That plan was submitted in August 2007 and accepted for review January 2008. A number of time extensions have been granted in the interim, but the board is not happy with that, although approving this extension by a 3-0 vote after some discussion.
Polk is not holding up the plan, which involves two townships, said Supervisor Nancy C. May, township secretary/treasurer. She explained that she had attended an Eldred Township meeting and reportedly Eldred "skips over it."
Polk Solicitor James Ferari suggested sending a letter to Eldred saying the problematic items should be taken care of. The extension was a 91-day one, taking that extension to Oct. 22, 2012.
A second extension, for the Pine Crest major subdivision plan, to submit a final plan, was also approved 3-0.
Time may be a factor for the Lower Middle Creek Bridge since the start-up date has now been re-set yet the work is supposed to be completed by Aug.15.
