Zoning of school district Emmaus Ave. tract disputed

The update of the Salisbury Township Comprehensive Plan, more than two years in the making and some 15 years since the previous plan, will have to wait a little longer.

The resolution to adopt the plan was greeted by silence when it came up for a vote at the Sept. 13 Board of Commissioners meeting.

Not one of the commissioners moved to bring the resolution up for a vote.

"We have no motion to adopt it [the resolution] as it stands," Board of Commissioners' President James Brown said.
