Curative Amendment Challenge by Geryville Materials End Finally Resolved in Lower Milford Township

Supreme CourtThe Pennsylvania Supreme Court refused to consider Geryville Materials appeal of the Pensylvania Commonwealth Court affirmation of the Lower Milford Township Board of Supervisors denial of the substantive challenge to the ordinances of the Township related to quarry operations. This ends the ten year old battle to enable a 628 acre quarry at the West Mill Hill and Kings Highway property and preserves our ordinances. Only the application before the Zoning Hearing Board filed in 2009 for an 84.56 acres remains.

Planning Commission Overturned

JudgeGeryville Materials won an appeal after 15 losses in 9 years (with no prior wins). The Commonwealth Courts of Pennsylvania overturned the Planning Commission’s and Court of Common Pleas Lehigh County’s decisions regarding their 2009 land development plan. While the court decision is extremely disappointing for us, we need to look at it in perspective. On the surface, Geryville has won this appeal. But this is not the whole story, nor is it where the story ends. The Township and the LMRA have been successfully fighting this zoning battle for the past 9 years. While Geryville wants to make it appear that they have won. THEY HAVE NOT. This decision DOES NOT mean the quarry is automatically approved and Geryville will begin blasting and digging. Geryville must first get zoning approval for the development. This has not happened. Their 2004 zoning application was denied, and the 2009 zoning application is still in hearings. Additionally, the Township has the right to appeal the Commonwealth Courts decision regarding the PC ruling reversal. We need to remain diligent and strong. The LMRA will continue to fight and do what is right for all citizens of Lower Milford Township.

Another Win in Pa Courts

Court Decision

On June 11, 2013, the Pennsylvania Court of Common Pleas upheld the Lower Milford Township Board of Supervisors decision to deny the Curative Amendment application of Geryville Materials for a 628 acre quarry. Although  the court found the operational provisions pre-empted, the natural resource provisions and our arguments were upheld. This is the 14th favorable decision for the Township and LMRA. One application remains before the Zoning Hearing Board. The fight will then turn to the Courts as Geryville Materials appeals the various decisions. Thus far, such appeals have not been successful .
