Mehoopany housing devt. on horizon
The Mehoopany Township supervisors heard during their meeting on Wednesday, August 13, from representatives from Kintner Homes, who tentatively plan on installing 50 units on a parcel of land they own near the old Mehoopany School, among other business.
Representing Kintner Homes were Josh and Jeff Kintner, who came before the supervisors to introduce plans for a community they want to establish in the township.
According to Josh Kintner, “the goal for the development is to bring more people back into the community.”
The Kintners were in attendance to see what permits would be required for the project, and to begin making plans moving forward with the instillation of the rentals.
Supervisor Bill Henning acknowledged that some of the plans would fall under the purview of the planning commission, and said that all he could do at the moment was say which permits would be required.
Kintner will have to meet with the township’s sewer engineer and provide him with usage projections for the rentals.
The developers will also have to consult with the state Department of Environmental Protection to guarantee that the sewer has the capacity to handle the new units.
Before instillation begins, Kintner will require driveway permits, among other permits.
No official action was taken by the supervisors concerning the project during Wednesday’s meeting.
No timetable was given for the project, but Jeff Kintner acknowledged that they would like to get things moving as soon as possible.
Supervisor Henning gave an update on the state of township roads, saying, “All roads have been covered with grading and our grader is back from repair.”
He added that “All dust control has been done and we have received a new mower.”
He noted that the road crew is currently in the process of catching up with the mowing.
Supervisor Darin Dunlap made the motion to accept Suit-Kote’s bid of $33,610.85 for tar and chipping to be done on Scottsville Road and Russell Road in the township. Henning seconded the motion.
Dunlap also made the motion to renew the FWM fire company’s workman’s compensation policy with SWIF (State Workers Insurance Fund). Henning seconded the motion.
The supervisors paid the townships bills, which totaled $18,292.77.
Sewer Bills totaled $10,666.79.
