Proposed North Whitehall Heliport Hearing Tonight
Testimony on a proposed heliport on private property will continue tonight at 7:30.
A public hearing regarding a proposed heliport/airport on private property at 5471 Route 309 in Schnecksville will continue tonight at 7:30 as opponents continue to testify against a special exception request brought by property owner Dr. Michael Selig.
Township Manager Jeff Bartlett said hearings were continued from a Dec. 13 hearing because nearby residents who oppose the proposed heliport/airport did not finish testifying. Hearings have been ongoing since October.
"They’ve made their argument and now it’s repetitive but they have their day in court," Bartlett said. "They are dragging this on for six hearings - it's frustrating and costs the township a considerable amount of money."
The hearing will be held at the North Whitehall Township Building on Levans Road.
