NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that the East Marlborough Township Board of Supervisors will hold a public hearing at (or shortly after) 7:15 p.m. on Monday, January 5, 2015 at the Township Building, 721 Unionville Road, Kennett Square, PA, to consider and possibly take formal action to adopt proposed Ordinance No. 2015-01. Ordinance 2015-01 amends and modifies Section 1602 of the Township Zoning Ordinance (Eligibility for Lot Averaging and Cluster Development) primarily by adding a new “Option B” Cluster Development Option, whereby, for tracts served by both central water and central sewer facilities, and located in the RB, RM, C-1, WMU and/or MU Zoning Districts of the Township, a further density bonus is granted for an applicant for subdivision approval who proposes to set aside additional common open space areas, over and above the “Option A” requirement of 45,000 square feet of common open space per lot. The amendment would also establish area and bulk regulations for subdivisions utilizing the Option B Cluster Development, including a minimum lot area of 7,000 square feet, and a maximum lot coverage ratio of 50%. Copies of the full text of the Ordinance as proposed may be examined at the East Marlborough Township Municipal Building, 721 Unionville Road, Kennett Square, PA, during the Township’s normal business hours, 8:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon, Monday through Friday.

With yard clean up on everyone's mind, you should all know that burning of brush and leaves is a very problematic issue. East Marlborough discourages burning; the Township prohibits the smoke and air pollution that travels onto neighbor's property. It is impossible to burn leaves at any time without creating dangerous and bothersome smoke. SECCRA Landfill, on Route 926, accepts bagged leaves, as well as branches and brush. The material must be transported in a covered vehicle. Please consider your neighbors and the environment before igniting any brush fires.
