- BOS Ups Ante Opposing Deluca Development in CM District
- Capital Grille Seeks Liquor License Transfer. Should BOS OK It?
- Another Developer Challenges Newtown’s Zoning!
BOS Versus “Deluca Boys”
At the 24 May 2023 #NewtownPA Board of Supervisors (BOS) meeting, land development attorney Joe Blackburn, representing Deluca Construction, came before the BOS to try and convince the members to withdraw their opposition to the Deluca proposal to build 2 houses on a 3.08 acre plot in the Conservation Management (CM) District, which only allows 1 house per 3 acres. The site is located at 70 Twining Bridge Rd.
Spoiler Alert! The supervisors had previously voted to send a letter to the Zoning Hearing Board opposing the relief. This time, the Board voted 4 to 1 to also send its solicitor in opposition.
Capital Grille Seeks Liquor License Transfer
The number of Newtown Township’s Restaurant Liquor Licenses (15) is more than double the allowed quota (7). The newest restaurant that will soon be requesting the approval from the BOS of a liquor license transfer is Capital Grille (read “Capital Grille Proposing To Open Restaurant In #NewtownPA Township”).
What’s Your Opinion?
Do you agree or disagree with this statement: Newtown Township has enough Liquor Licenses. The Board of Supervisors should NOT approve more transfers of liquor licenses from other municipalities. TAKE THE SURVEY NOW: https://forms.gle/WkyiJGivg9hHLyTdA
