         770 Jenkintown Rd                                

  The Florist and greenhouses  are in the R4  single family home neighborhood
It consisted of a single house and multiple greenhouses and  small buildings .
Find out exactly how many properties are there
Find out what the current non-conforming zoning use is - how is it worded 

  All were bought 7-15-19 by Dreck Properties, Ltd 

  Who is Dreck properties  ? 
                            David Mermelstein  is Treasurer C/O Howard Parso
ns  2587 Huntingdon Pike  HV 19006
                            Howard Parsons = President C/O Howard Parsons  2587 Huntingdon Pike  HV 19006

  Dreck filed a Declaration at hte County and with it  created   13 Parcels  from the  one
          The  Zoning Use Designation  at the County is now : C- Common Element -  Commercial Condo 
           This was not a rezoning . It was done by Declaration using the  the " Uniform Planned Community Act",  found here :                   
            https://www.legis.state.pa.us/wu01/li/li/ct/htm/68/00.051..htm   
           I was told the document had just the owners signature ( Dreck Properties ) and his attorney's signature - (Marshall Granor)


  It is unclear at this time if they are REQUIRED to file anything with the Township when they do this . The Township needs to know for enforcement purposes what the zoning is - so I can't imagine they would no

   One neighbor happened to see the County Records  and noticed that instead of one parcel there were 13 .  No neighbors  had been notified of any changes - even if they are directly contiguous,  Commissioner DiPlacido knew nothing about it - and a month and a half later still had no answers.

  Here is how a single property ended up looking like this on the County records: 

                     770JenkRd-13Parcels

  Some language in the  " Uniform Planned Community Act"  that gives us to know that conversion would be possible for the units created by "declaration under the Uniform Planned Community Act. Before any rezoning - using the old zoning which was R4 residential but included a non-conforming use for the business and greenhouses,   they would have to "fix any non-conformities" before developing further.  I am concerned that if these parcels are already divided - and then a "mixed  residential " zoning overly is  bestowed upon them, that they could then convert their 13 units inthe manner allowed under the Uniform Planned Community Act.
 
Have not had time to read through the whole  Uniform Planned Community Act yet - help is needed .

    Where is 770 Jenkintown Rd?   On the map above find the triangle shape to see where Township line goes off the page. That area highlighted below - the x is the property. So it is in the grey area slated to be rezoned -- without the knowledge or input of the residents who OWN the property and want their zoning laws upheld .

    Here are the basic statistics found at the  County for the main parcel
Help is needed looking up the plot plan that shows the 13 divisions

Abington Township, with John Spiegelman in charge, revamped the entire Township website at the end of 2015 and broke all the links to the information we had archived on this site for you.   In 2017, Manager Richard Manfredi arrived and assigned someone not qualified to redo the entire website again. They not only broke all archived links we had reinstated, but made everything as impossible to find as they could. Nearly all of our comments and recommedations to fix the Township website have been wholly ignored.

So we do need volunteers to work together helping the Township create a site that is functional and accessible.  We will be reinstating links as we find them....if the data is still available. So... please let us know if you find a broken link. Send us the URL of the link  and the name of the page it is on, and if we can, we'll reinstate it.
Thanks for the help.
