[Newtown Township, May 11, 2022] At 4:21 PM, Newtown Township Manager Micah Lewis informed supervisors that “Provco/Wawa will be removed from tonight's agenda at the request of the Applicant.” According to a letter received via email from John A. VanLuvanee, the attorney representing Provco Pinegood Newtown, LLC, who said that his client has “elected to grant the Township a 90-day extension of the time period within which the Board of Supervisors is required to take action on its pending preliminary/final land development plan application. The time for the Township to take action pursuant to the most recent extension that I granted expires on May 15, 2022. Accordingly, this extension is granted throught (sic) August 15, 2022.”
Mr. VanLuvanee requested that the plan be removed from the agenda of the May 11, 2022, Board of Supervisors meeting. No reason was given. Was it a "poison pill" that that arose at the last minute? What's Next? Get the inside story.

NEWTOWN, May 3, 2022 - Newtown, Wrightstown & Upper Makefiled (the "Jointure") are working on amending the existing wireless communication section of the Joint Municipal Zoning Ordinance (JMZO), to include measures to ensure wireless infrastructure doesn’t become what Wrightstown Supervisor Chairman Chester Pogonowski has described as an “eyesore.”
On May 3, 2022, the Planning Commission voted 6-1 to recommend that the BOS approve the ordinance as written BUT also send to the supervisors a list of questions and suggested revisions to the ordinance prepared by Michele Fountain - the Township Planner.
