On April 6, 2023, the Commonwealth Court ruled in favor of the homeowners in the case of Robert P. Grim v. Maxatawny Township Board of Supervisors, No. 1452 CD 2021. The decision blocks a warehousing development plan for 12.1 million square feet of farmlands near Route 222 and Long Lane Road in Maxatawny Township. The plan would have created two warehouses that operated 24-hours, seven days a week, for 1,800 tractor-trailers. The Commonwealth Court agreed with Attorney Joel Ready’s arguments that the developer failed to get a zoning variance and special exception from the Zoning Hearing Board.
