Marc D. Jonas, Esq. Obtains Townhouse Zoning in East Norriton
The East Norriton Township Board of Supervisors voted to approve two zoning ordinance amendments for the WNAP radio tower property on Old Arch Road paving the way for a residential development of 40 townhouses.
Better Living Homes, Inc., represented by Marc D. Jonas, Esquire with the assistance of Zachary A. Sivertsen, Esquire, petitioned the township to change the zoning of the land and to amend the zoning classification for townhouses. As part of their due diligence investigation, Mr. Jonas and Mr. Sivertsen noted a history of zoning changes in the Old Arch Road neighborhood consistent with the proposed townhouse zoning. The concept plan presented by Better Living Homes included a significant walkability component by including sidewalks on both sides of the new interior road, along the frontage of the property, as well as a potential crosswalk to the township park across the street.
