Other Announcements

Planned Residential Developments (PRD’s)

  • On November 20, representatives of Joseph and Debra Lisanti and NVR Inc. presented to the Board a letter responding to the final issues needing resolution regarding their PRD project on the Mineral Beach property. The Board approved the PRD contingent on NVR’s response to the final issues.  The plan features 104 single family homes. A presentation preceded the board vote showcasing the plan layout and the 5 styles of homes to be constructed.   Main access to the plan remains to be Walter Long Road.

 

  • Permitting continues leading to final approval of a PRD proposed by Scarmazzi Homes of its Hidden Hollow project (100 plus homes).   Most recently, Union Twp. received a request to support the Scarmazzi Homes application for a PennDOT grant to help finance construction of a turning lane on Route 88 for access to Hidden Hollow Rd, and for improvements to Hidden Hollow Rd.  The Twp. is supporting this grant request.

 

  • Imminent new ownership of the Tuscany Estates Development Project Is a positive move for Union Twp. and for the present and future residents of Tuscany Estates.

 

Grants

Solicitation of grants is ongoing. With most grants, a successful acquisition may mean an expenditure of matching funds from the Twp. budget. Planning for success is always crucial – this includes grant acquisitions.

  • The Twp. was recently informed that it has been awarded the DCNR grant for Elrama ParK in the amount of $ 49,900. These funds are to be used to transform a vacant lot in Elrama to a recreational park with features that are likely to include a pavilion, play area for children and a temporary parking area.
  • The funds ($ 66,400) from a successful 2018 Community Development Block Grant for improvements to the Municipal Building Rest Rooms are being released. This project will soon begin to improve handicapped access and generally upgrade the facilities.   Any excess funds from this project have been approved to be used for demolition of condemned structures in the township.

MS4 Compliance (Sewage Projects)

  • The most significant efforts to comply with our MS4 permit is the ongoing plans to complete the three major sewage projects in Union Twp. (Overlook, Finleyville/Elrama Rd and Mingo Circle. Overlook is waiting for resolution of easements with property owners. Finleyville Elrama Rd. and Mingo Circle await final design completion and inclusion as part of a revised Union Township 537 plan.
  • Union Township has prepared a Stormwater Management Plan that is available for public review at the Union Twp. Municipal Building until December 31, 2019.
