Trustees grant request to table development decision

One Union Township couple won what appears to be a victory for the little guy in a zoning hearing at the Jan. 10 Union Township Trustees meeting. Charlie and Anita Neff challenged the formal plans for a development that will place over 30 homes on what has served as baseball and softball fields at the intersection of Old SR 74 and Heitman Lane. In all, the property will place some 33 homes on 4.94 acres for a density of 6.5 buildings an acre.

The Neffs, whose home and landscaping building will abut the property, said that there were several discrepancies they would like to see fixed before things proceeded too far.
