It was moved and seconded (Catherine Donohue/Randy Bucksner) to approve the minutes of the November, 2004 Hearing. Unanimous approval
David Wagenseller: The application to be heard is the application of Rich Ressler Construction for a lot at 1501 Stevens St., East Petersburg. First of all the court reporter who should be here has not appeared and so a tape recorder has been provided, so if anyone would like to object this is the time you need to object to having a tape recorder instead of a court reporter. I hear no objections so the board can continue. I see there are a number of people here so I need to say that the zoning ordinance and state law that governs zoning hearing boards provides that anybody that is affected by an application is entitled to be recognized formally as a party to the proceeding. You don’t have to be a party to give facts to the board; you don’t necessarily have to be a party in order to tell the board what you think they ought to do in their decision. Party status gives you special rights, such as the right to appeal if the decision does not go your way; the right to cross examine witnesses and the right to receive a copy of the decision at the end. If anyone here wishes to be formally recognized as a party I’ll ask you to stand then I’ll ask you to give your name and your address to the zoning hearing board and some a statement about how you are affected by the application. Then the board may examine you on whether by law you are qualified to be a party and the applicant also has the right to cross examine you about your qualifications if you are entitled by law to be a party. Is there anyone here wishing to be formally recognized as a party please stand up. I would. Would you tell the board your name and address? My name is Susan Zeidler, 1610 Stevens Street. How far are you from the lot? I’m right across the street from the lot. At the corner of Stevens Street and Sundra Circle.
Randy Bucksner: What would you like to say?

Zeidler: I would, is that road, are the plans that I see, that’s what we’re talking about tonight. Your proposal that Sundra Drive is going to come over to Sundra Circle?

Bucksner: Yes

Zeidler: And you are going to build nine houses on that lot?

Bucksner: That is the suggested proposal by Rich Ressler Construction, yes.

Wagenseller: At this point, before we’ve heard anything from the applicant, it’s your opportunity to explain to the board how you are affected by the application.

Zeidler: Well, if that goes through, there is going to be a tremendous amount of traffic that will be going right by my house, especially on Tuesdays. People will be coming down Stevens Street at a high rate of speed, cutting across to go to Graystone Road, and a lot of people ride their bikes, ride on that road like I do.

Wagenseller: Would you come up to the table and show the board on this site plan where your house is.

Zeidler: Right there. The railroad tracks are right there, so there is where my house is. So obviously, you can see, right now it is a pretty quiet street, I have children, I have a two year old, I didn’t move into that house to so I can have traffic all the time. If you built those houses there, I wouldn’t like all those houses but, the worse part to me is the road coming over there to my house.

Bucksner: So, for you it’s less about that that plot is going to be developed, the road is more the issue.

Zeidler: Well, nine houses are too much for me, obviously empty land is going to be developed, it’s only a matter of time. But that road is going to be very detrimental, to my property value to.

Bucksner: Thank you

Wagenseller: Generally, anybody who is abutting or adjacent land owner is normally recognized in the law as entitled to be a party. So as Chairman you want to put on the records whether you believe this person ought to be a party or not.

Bucksner: This person is going to be a party.

Bucksner: Anybody else? Yes, sir

My name is George Kiehl; I live at 6280 Sundra Drive.



Bucksner: Ok, can you show us on the map?

Kiehl: Here. I’m concerned about the thoroughfare. I’ve lived here for 40 years, 40 years ago when we first moved in here there were 52 kids on that street. The streets are playground, on Tuesday night we got Roots sale; it will be like a speedway going through there. I went to the Borough about 38/39 years ago and got a “dead end” sign for the street. Now, all the kids are grown and we are getting kids back on the street. And a lot of kids play on the streets. Another issue I have is I have a ½ acre of ground with a house on it, and here is 3/12 acres with nine houses on it. That’s a bunch of baloney to me. And then the other thing I’m concerned about is did anybody say anything about runoff on here.

Wagenseller: Well, that isn’t for the zoning hearing board, that would be an issue for the Borough at the land development stage. What the applicant came for is to ask for permission to have narrow entrances on a couple of lots. I’ll assume the applicant will speak up incase you want to cross examine anyone who wants to be a party.

Kiehl: Because what I’m concerned about is runoff here, down here this property, the third property, storm surge runs through here, under the railroad tracks. And all the water from this development goes down through there.

Wagenseller: That is an issue that will be considered at an additional, later proceeding.

Bucksner: Mr. Kiehl, your issue then is with the traffic and the runoff more so then the actual development.

Kiehl: Well, I don’t like the plan with all the houses there and I don’t like the thoroughfare. What I said, we’re going to have traffic come down there and Root’s night they come down there and that first street on the other side of the railroad tracks they make a right hand turn thinking they are going to run parallel with 72, their going to come down there across, where are they going to go, it’s going to be, it’s chaos.

Bucksner: Thank you for your testimony.

Wagenseller: It’s up to your judgment if you want to qualify them as party.

Bucksner: Party

Wagenseller: Ok

Bucksner: Anybody else?

Emily Lantz



Wagenseller: What’s your first name again?

Lantz: Emily

Wagenseller: And your home address?

Lantz: 6198 Sundra Circle. I am concerned about the traffic but another concern I have our house is sitting on a ??? rock that runs right across there to Binkley & Ober, they fixed the end of our house twice, if you blast in that field there is going to be a lot of houses damaged. I think that nine houses in that small property is way too many unless they are going stick low income housing in there.

Bucksner: So you’re not totally opposed to the land being developed just to the plan as it is now.

Lantz: Right – the nine houses and really concerned about blasting. Because Binkley & Ober has already paid to fix our house twice.

Bucksner: ok, also a party to this hearing. Anybody else?

McElwain: My name is Connie McElwain I live at 6370 Sundra Drive. My concern is basically it has always been a dead end street and I can’t understand why it can’t stay the way it has always been and make a cul-de-sac.

Bucksner: So it isn’t that you are against the development, just specifically about that.

McElwain: Right

Bucksner: Very good. Anybody else want to be a party to this, any more neighbors? Mr. Ressler, do you want to say anything? Is that your attorney?

Unknown: I’m not an attorney, I’m a landscape architect.

Wagenseller: Because there is a tape recording, anybody who says anything must say their name first before you speak.

Unknown: I’m Carol Earhart and I am representing Diehm & Sons. Who are representing Mr. Ressler. I brought a drawling, it’s the exact same format only in color.

Wagenseller: Could you explain to the board which lot

Earhart: First off, I was going to ask do you want to mark all the exhibits first or as I present them?

Wagenseller: As you identify them please.

Earhart: ok, let me just go through and get you oriented, this property is about 3 and ¼ acres, it is in the R-1 district that permits 10,000 square foot lots which is typical of those lots which are surrounding it in size. The development itself is permitted by zoning and what we are here for is lots number 6 and 7 which are behind the main house. Lots 6 & 7 have only a narrow frontage on the proposed street and they are shaped what they usually call them are flag lots, the narrow long ??? going into that lot is considered a pole and then the property that supports the house is considered the flag. In both of these cases the flag without the pole exceeds 10,000 square feet. Lot number 6 shown at 16,927 square feet without the flagpole still has 13,848 square feet and lot number 7 shown at 12,765 excluding the flagpole has 11, 471 square feet. So they do not rely on the area that is within the flagpole to be compliant with the zoning ordinance. Lot number 3 in the corner here, you’ll see has lot frontage of the required depth of 80 feet on Stevens Street, having met with
