Marc D. Jonas, Esq. Settles Appeal and Obtains Approval of Subdivision Application
Following the filing of an appeal challenging its decision in a subdivision application, the Board of Commissioners of Upper Moreland Township in Montgomery County, Pennsylvania, agreed to settle the appeal and approve the subdivision application as presented. The settlement was approved by the Montgomery County Court of Common Pleas. At the heart of the issue was the township’s attempt to obtain a utility easement to benefit other properties. Eastburn and Gray attorney Marc D. Jonas, Esq. successfully represented the landowners in contesting the township’s action and securing court approval of the settlement. The township abandoned its effort to obtain the easement and approved all waivers sought by the landowners.
