KMRD Procedural Challenge Appeal - Oral arguments heard

On February 3, 2009, Northampton County Court of Common Pleas Judge Emil Giordano heard the oral arguments in the KMRD/Kings Mill appeal of the Forks Zoning Hearing Board's determination that the Township followed procedures in the legal advertising of its 2006 zoning ordinance. 

KMRD wants all zoning ordinances enacted since 1983 declared invalid - a move which would allow development of their owned/under contract parcels in the Forks FP (Farmland Preservation zoning district) under 1983 rules.  Judge Giordano rightly observed that a decision in favor of KMRD would have far reaching ramifications in every municipality in Pennsylvania. 

The Morning Call's Riley Yates was there.  Please read his article for more details.
