Cornerstone Attorney Wins Appeal Blocking a Warehousing Plan in Maxatawny

Green grass in the sun

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.

    Hallelujah, praise the lord, the lawyer, the judge and all the good folks of Maxatawny who fought against these warehouses for years! May this set a precedent for the rest of the small PA townships nearby who are also battling these ruthless warehouse developers!

    Outstanding news.. If our elected boards were better trained, they would understand that protests and lawsuits are a sign that you are out of tune with your voters.. there is nothing intuitive about governing thousands of humans.. Pennsylvania offers education and so much more to municipal leaders and staff.. In my county the municipal leaders that attend the state-offered training and participate in state-offered activities have a better connection with community members..

    If you can hear me and want to positively change your community, I’ll offer you this example of defiance.. You have a right to know, if you are being governed by capable and competent humans.. No Pennsylvania County Judge can argue that training isn’t the remedy.!
