Linglestown Gazette: Open space will remain open – for now

Open space will remain open – for now

Earthmoving taking place in a field just east of the village of Linglestown is a for a pole barn project, according to a Lower Paxton Township official.

With only one dozer and one earthmover buzzing around the property, this is clearly a small project.

The property owner, Eric Kessler of Lower Paxton Township, would need to obtain township approval prior to developing a housing project on the tract located in the 6200 block of Linglestown Road.

Kessler is president of a real estate development and construction firm. He also chairs the Village of Linglestown Committee that is working on the square improvement project.

A pole barn with 30 allotments of kitchen, bathroom and living space? I kid.

Hopefully it will be a nice looking pole barn. I love the look of that field and what it gives to the essence of Linglestown as one enters from that direction.

Thank you for taking the time to figure out what's going on over there!

A pole barn sounds good. But does anyone know what real, long-range plans are in the works for that large chunk of land?

Until a land development plan is filed with the township, the best you can do is speculate on what will happen, if anything. The tract is zoned for medium-density housing.

Since the landowner, Eric Kessler, is in the real estate development business, there's a good chance the property will at some point be used for a housing development.

If and when a plan is filed, Linglestown residents will have opportunities to participate in the plan-approval process.

Citizen activism is currently having an impact on land-use issues in Lower Paxton Township. SWAN, a citizens group led by political activist Eric Epstein, has had a major impact on the final design of a large housing development planned for the former Stray Winds Farm off of Crooked Hill Road.

Eric Kessler is well known for misleading the public in a friendly way. His past failed experiences in land brokerage led him into land development. He built a nice pole barn and today fitted with high intensity discharge crime lights make it most attractive to the local community. Not to mention his wonderful Navy Polaris rocket vintage 1967 adds a value to Linglestowns wonderful history and heritage and can be be seen easily by anyone driving by. I have no doubt this man will have his way with what he promises. What he will do would certainly be a different thing. If Mrs Eister was was informed properly. She could have kept her land with a federal grant that would not ever let it to be developed and she would have her money to do as she wished. Eric Kessler has been less than honest to to many. Why else would he buy the property that faces the end of Balthaser. His comment was it is for his daughter. It's only an easy right of way to develop more and firmly more on public water also a must to develop. I don't trust him.
Just google him.

I should have said google
(eric kessler developer pa). He also approched the Waltz's and the Leibik's for their property. He offered the Waltz to pay there property taxes for life for the right of way.
A serious snake in the grass.
Best wishes for Linglestown.
