Zoning Ordinance and SALDO
A new zoning ordinance and SALDO are proposed for Eldred Township.
Complementary ordinances are also being considered in Ross, Chestnuthill and Jackson Townships. Upon approval by the Boards of Supervisors of each of these townships, the proposed ordinances would establish certain regional uses, each of which is specifically assigned to one or more of those four townships. Each township to which a regional use is assigned must provide for that use in its zoning ordinance; those to which a particular regional use is not assigned will not have it. The regional uses and the townships to which they are assigned are set out in Section 400.4 of the zoning ordinance.
The proposed Eldred ordinances are available for review during regular business hours at the Township Building, or by viewing the attachment provided below.
Eldred’s Planning Commission will be completing its review of Eldred’s two proposed new ordinances at its public meeting at the township building at 7:30pm on Thursday, March 20, 2014. Public comment is welcome. There will also be a joint hearing for the purpose of taking public comment on the ordinances proposed for each of the participating townships at the West End Firehouse on Route 715 at 7:00pm on Thursday, March 27, 2014. The Supervisors of each township will vote on the ordinances following the hearing.
STATE POLICE BULLETIN
A disturbing new “game” that is sweeping the nation has reportedly caused deaths in Missouri, New York, and New Jersey. Perpetrators have dubbed the brutal practice as the “knockout game” in which young people prey upon unsuspecting adults and try to randomly knock out strangers with one punch called the ‘one hitter quitter’. If the victim is not knocked out after the initial hit, the participants continue to assault them until they are unconscious or they escape. The trend has gained popularity through social media with accomplices going online boasting about their recent assaults. In many instances, the attacks have been caught on camera and are later posted online.
Cities such as New York, Philadelphia, St. Louis, Chicago, Hoboken, and Washington D.C. have had knockout attacks which have led to several injuries and deaths.
• Be vigilant and aware of your surroundings.
• While walking on streets, sidewalks or other public places, avoid wearing earphones or ear buds, talking on your phone, or playing with your phone, all of which divert your attention from your surroundings.
• Avoid large groups of teens or young adults and if encountered, attempt to walk away or move to the other side of the street. If you believe you are in immediate danger, call 9-1-1.
• Immediately report all criminal activity and suspicious behavior to your local police department for investigation.
