Commonwealth Court Denies Gerryville Materials Appeal of Zoning Board Decision

On September 12, 2012, the Commonwealth Court affirmed the Court of Common Pleas rejection of the appeal by Geryville Materials of the Zoning Board decision to deny a special exception to our ordinances to permit a 628+ acre quarry at the West Mill Hill/Kings Highway location. This was the first of several applications to the Zoning Board.  It was filed on August 25, 2004, and hearings continued for 5 years. At that point, the Zoning Board decided to set an end time for testimony. On August 26, 2009, after the final hearing was held, the Zoning Board denied the special exception.

Gerryville Materials appealed on the ground that the Board did not have the authority to deny further continuances and that they erred in imposing the natural resource protections in our ordinances. The Court of Common Pleas denied the appeal on all counts in Sept 2011. The decision was affirmed by the Commonwealth Court.

Geryville Materials can further appeal to the Supreme Court of Pennsylvania but we hope that the court will refuse to hear it. This is the 11th loss the Geryville Materials has suffered in the courts and hearings. They still have 2 ongoing hearing at the Zoning Board. Hopefully, these hearings will conclude this year.
