ST MICHAEL'S
ONSEQUENCES OF THIS WAIVER


St Michael's had an allowed use with their property when they bought it . It did probably did allow for many upgrades but did NOT include the upgrades  to make this level of development.  And in fact many residents recall the letter fassuring no anticipation of functioning any differently.   Thought for the day  ……what is the real cost of this waiver that granted so many increased rights? The Township Engineer's staff, the Code/Zoning staff, the Township Manager, the Solicitor, the Commissioners…….endless meetings and hours of documentation -hours of testimony,  plan review, phone calls, etc.
    And the same for residents  ....    Residents  now had to consult lawyers & others  in order to learn what their rights are regarding  fighting these waivers, or  having codes such as noise enforced. They had to learn their rights regarding easements, property boundaries, sewage system consequences, etc. They have had  to attend numerous  meetings, prepare testimony, read documents and there will be much  more to come.  These things are not paid by the "fees" that St Michael's will be charged. ( Our Code Enforcement /Zoning dept prides itself on running largely on “fees” )  These costs, instead ,  are additional fees on all of us -with a heavy burden for the nearby neighbors - but a burden, too for the rest of us in the Township. It increases our taxes, steals our personal time & expenses . 

    The structure itself while making that property owner "richer" may erode the enjoyment  and value of every property within its "reach", as well as the finances of those beyond its reach .  These  waivers are being very freely given  by our Zoners and Planners and Commissioners - and not just via Waivers, Variances and Special Exceptions but also via Zoning rewrites……click here for more .

 

It it Ok to take from some to give to others . Shall we uphold our laws, codes and regulations or allow our elected and paid officials to use them as they please?
