North Huntingdon zoning revamp ahead

North Huntingdon planning commission members are seeking input from commissioners on the township's zoning overhaul, a discussion that could shape the vision for development.

Commissioners and planners are scheduled to meet at 6 p.m. Feb. 14 at the Town House before the commissioners' regularly scheduled monthly meeting.

Planning Director Andrew Blenko pitched to the planning commission on Monday a list of 10 possible conversation topics that include: commissioners' priorities on new development; the depth of the commercial zoning district along Route 30; the vision for the western end of Route 30; and plans for future open space/recreation areas.

Another question to consider is, as Blenko wrote in a memo: “Do we want to slow down or limit residential development?”

Other topics range from a domestic poultry ordinance to Dumpster requirements to limitations on billboards.

In addition to direction on the zoning revamp, Blenko said the board is also looking for general feedback.

“I think we're looking for a little more two-way communication,” Blenko said.

He solicited ideas from planning commission members for additional topics.

Virginia Stump, a member of the board, suggested asking commissioners how they'd like to tackle the township's comprehensive plan.

Planning commission President William Chapman said he's interested in a philosophical discussion with commissioners, asking what role they feel planners should take.
