PUBLIC COMMENT

Mr. McLearnon said he had spoken with Mr. Pellegrino and the sign at Sycamore Street and the Bypass will be replaced by the Township.

Mr. Thomas asked about the storm drainage issue at his property at 221 N. Sycamore Street. Mr. Lombardi said that there was a serious elevation problem there, as the sidewalk is higher than the property, especially at the drive, where it could cause difficulty for vehicles. Mr. Shaffer said he has asked the designer to review the situation but has not yet received a response; he said that they may be able to change the profile of the street at that location. Mr. Lombardi suggested that moving the curb line out might help.

Adjournment

On motion by Mr. Merjeski, seconded by Mr. Wilson and without objection, the meeting was adjourned at 8:28 p.m.

 

Respectfully submitted,
