O’Hara council will meet at 7 p.m. Nov. 7 for its regular workshop.

The township offices are closed Nov. 6, when the meeting typically would be held, for Election Day.

Council is expected to discuss recent amendments to zoning during the meeting. Members in September approved the creation of a moderate density residential district along the Saxonburg Boulevard corridor.

“They are reviewing the proposed map,” township Manager Julie Jakubec said. “They wanted more time to review the included properties.”

Jakubec said there is an expectation of build-out since a $4 million sewerline project is moving foward in the area, where residents now rely on septic systems.

The sewerline project will provide service to neighborhoods from the Shaler line to the Indiana Township line, and some homes along Berryhill and Calmwood roads.

The meeting will be at 7 p.m. in the municipal building, 325 Fox Chapel Road.

In other news, the township’s fall leaf collection runs through Dec. 1.

Leaves should be set at the curb, with no other debris mixed in. The eastern and western portions of the township have been divided into zones to make it easier for the public works department to follow a set route and notify residents where collection is taking place.

The township’s website is updated daily.

TribLIVE commenting policy

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
