Crossings Land Use Decision Appealed

An attorney representing two aggrieved East Hempfield Township residents filed a notice of appeal of of the Manheim Township Commissioners' recent approval for the Crossings at Conestoga Creek project with the Lancaster County Court of Common Pleas today.

In his appeal, attorney Bill Cluck raises several issues related to standing and procedure with regard to Manheim Township's recently-concluded "Conditional Land Use Hearing" on the controversial proposed shopping complex.

He also specifically accuses Manheim Township Commissioners Carol Simpson and Michael Flanagan of conflicts of interest and asserts that they should have recused themselves from the hearing.

The appeal can be read in its entirety here.
