City of Easton and Lower Mount Bethel Township To Testify At Upcoming Kings Mill Hearing

Round 14 is scheduled this Monday for the Forks zoning challenge hearing by Kings Mill & partners!

What time? - Monday, August 13th at 7:30 PM

Where? - Forks Municipal Building

Presentations will be made by representatives from the City of Easton and Lower Mount Bethel Township. Both are expected to testify about the expected impact of Kings Mill and its planned 3000+ dwelling units on their municipalities! It should be an eye opener!

The Kings Mill partnership (Zawarski, Maloney, & Benner) alleges that the Forks╩╝ Farmland Protection District zoning is too restrictive. Their vision proposes 3,042 dwelling units -- apartments, townhomes and a mobile home park. To us, that looks like:

  • 6,000 more cars on town roads everyday
  • 8,000 more students in the schools
  • 25% of open farm fields covered with roofs and asphalt

This can't be good for Forks. We urge you to attend these zoning challenge hearings. The developers do! And, your presence makes a difference. It reminds them that Forks residents indeed care about their quality of life and about what Kings Mill will to do to us! Bring family! Bring friends! Bring neighbors! Let's not leave an empty seat in the room on Monday, August 13th!
