Cecil supervisors set public hearings
Cecil Board of Supervisors set a pair of public hearings starting at 6 p.m. April 22 in the township meeting room, the first of which will deal with a new property maintenance code ordinance during the regular supervisor’s meeting April 1. The second, to be held immediately following the first public hearing, will deal with a conditional use application for the In and Out Grocery for installation of a canopy and gasoline dispensing pumps. The grocery is located at 3369 Millers Run Road and the applicant is Sagar Ukani.
Supervisors agreed to submit a grant request through the state Department of Conservation and Natural Resources for additional development in Klinger Park, located off Klinger Road near Southpointe. The five-member board also authorized the township engineer to prepare plans and cost estimates for the DCNR grant for an amount not to exceed $3,500, and authorized Don Gennuso, township manager, to hire a certified appraiser to provide information for the DCNR grant applications.
Supervisors approved a subdivision plan for Quattro Investment Group for the first phase of a three-building office complex in Southpointe II West Plan.
