Monday in the village

Lower Paxton leadership shakeup? ...

Tonight the Lower Paxton Township Board of Supervisors will conduct their annual reorganization meeting tonight, and the rumor mill is murmuring that longstanding board chairman Bill Hawk could be replaced.

UPDATE, 7:40 pm – Signs of behind-the-scenes talks about appointing a new board leader did show up during the public meeting. Mr. Hawk was re-elected as board chairman in an uncontested vote.

The festivities are scheduled to kick off at 7:30 pm, Township Municipal Center, 425 Prince Street. Comcast cable subscribers can view a live broadcast of the meeting on channel 20.

The meeting agenda includes a swearing-in ceremony for Supervisor David Blain, who is starting his second term in office.

Another item worthy of note is a vote on proposed zoning tweaks for Sportsman’s Golf Course based on land-use plans adopted by the township.

The owner of one of the affected tracts is tentatively planning to build senior age-restricted housing on the land. Neighboring property owners have expressed concerns about traffic congestion on Linglestown Road and stormwater runoff problems if the property is developed. Township officials will address these concerns if a formal development plan is submitted.

Other municipal meetings this week – all meetings will be held at the municipal center:

Tuesday, 7 pm – Recycling Committee

Wednesday, 7 pm – Planning Commission (advisory board that reviews development plans, land-use regulations)

Thursday, 7 pm – Public Safety Committee

Reputation of roundabouts improving ...

A newspaper report says roundabouts like the one planned for the Linglestown square are beginning to catch on in Bucks County, Pa., and across the nation.
