The planning commission will consider two zoning changes at 7 p.m. today in the main meeting room of the municipal building on Hilltop Road.

One change would involve the industrial-zoned Camp Hill area near the Carnegie border, which could be rezoned to a B-4 business use that would have to be created.

Also under consideration is changing the B-1 Presto area on Thoms Run Road to B-3, which would be similar to the Collier Town Square area, said Robert Caun, director of planning, zoning and land development.

“This is the first roll-out to the public to make sure we’re heading in the right direction,” he said. “We’re looking at the past 10 years to see where things could be improved.”

He urged residents to attend to see if and how their properties may be affected by the proposed changes. Mackin Engineering has been retained to assist with the possible rezoning work.

He suggested that the proposed B-4 use could be a mixture of commercial and light industrial, with possible banking, professional offices, minor retail stores as well as research and light manufacturing.

Mr. Caun said the public can comment on the proposals, which he said likely won't have a significant impact on the township.

“It doesn’t really change what we’re doing now. It just tightens it up a little bit,” he said.

■ Commissioners voted July 23 to:

• Advertise an ordinance to change the name of Main Street to Brook Street.

• Hire Deborah Gawryla to serve as webmaster at $30 an hour, which was effective July 28. She will be an independent contractor.

• Ratify a resolution to request a $146,854 grant from the Commonwealth Financing Authority Greenway, Trails and Recreation Program to rehabilitate the Nevillewood Trail, also known as the Bible Trail.

• Request a $423,991 grant from the Commonwealth Financing Authority, Flood Mitigation Program for the Shadow Drive flood mitigation pond project.

• Appoint Rochelle Barry as recreation program coordinator at $40,000 a year.

Green Tree

Council Monday awarded the fire hall roofing replacement project to G & W Roofing and Construction Inc. of Eighty Four in Washington County.

The company, which bid $65,488 to do the work, was the lowest of three bidders.

■ Council voted to oppose the expansion of federal control under the Clean Water Act.

The action was taken at the suggestion of the Allegheny County Boroughs Association, which believes the proposed expansion would cost its member municipalities additional money.
