Residents Hope to Build Home on Floodplain of Poquessing Creek
The Zoning Hearing Board will meet on Thursday, March 14 to discuss six appeals.
Residents who hope to build a home within the floodplain of the Poquessing Creek will discuss the issue with the Zoning Hearing Board at tonight's meeting.
Kevin DiPaolo is seeking a variance that would allow the construction of a single family dwelling in floodplain and wetland buffer on Century Lane, according to the board's agenda.
