Dec 19th 2022 – this meeting was very different than the one we went to in January. December there was a full plan laid out, a rep from the sewer dpt was there, the engineer discussed logistics, the builders explained the emergency exit of the warehouse proposed would be onto Atlas Rd., how many parking spots, 91 jobs… a very different conversation than just lines on a plan like the Jan meeting.

Here are the Allen Township Municipal code links that can help our case. It’s a lot to look through but a great resource to familiarize yourself with and to cite when asking questions.

Things to consider:

  • PLEASE COME TO THE Board of Supervisors REZONING meeting  – Feb 14th at 6pm at the Allen Twp. Fire Hall – this is the first of many phases of this project.
  • Writing, emailing, calling OUR representatives.
  • The impact on neighborhood playgrounds where children play and families gather to enjoy the public spaces, and the dog park, all ON Atlas Rd and Savage Rd (that have no sidewalks)
  • Trucks are currently restricted from driving on Savage Rd, Atlas Rd & Weaversville Rd. Which is not being enforced by the State Police, who’s jurisdiction, it is on Weaversville Rd.
  • Breaking ground and blasting: how might this effect Greenwood Cemetery which is directly next to the proposed warehouse site.
  • the impact on local businesses like Ace Hardware, Abbey Road Veterinary, community building organizations such as St. Johns Church
  • Sharp 4 way stops where tractor trailers will not be able to make turns onto.
  • Additional tractor trailers and car traffic in the area.
  • Weaversville Rd’s construction was not completed to support this many heavy vehicles and the potholes are a direct reflection of that.
  • 2.5 million square feet of warehouse space along Nor-Bath Blvd are not fully
    occupied. {4.5% Vacancy rate in the Lehigh Valley – reference this article }
  • Bridges on local roads can’t withstand the truck traffic
  • Warehouses locally are still for lease.
  • These builders are from Morristown, New Jersey, they don’t know the things this community is already dealing with and what it needs.
  • Lehigh Valley Planning Commission even says no more warehouses!

Thank you again for taking the time and for your interest. We hope to see you at the meeting Feb 14th, 6pm at the Allen Twp Fire Hall. We will be sending out an email reminder to all who email and include up to date information about this land which will eventually be a proposed warehouse.
