Local Officials Slam Impact Fee’s Zoning Restrictions

By

LinkState Impact

Town­ship and bor­ough man­agers, coun­cil mem­bers and super­vi­sors are push­ing back against Repub­li­can lead­ers who want to limit local gov­ern­ments’ abil­ity to zone nat­ural gas drilling.

Two impact fees in front of state law­mak­ers would place firm guide­lines on what munic­i­pal­i­ties can and can’t reg­u­late, when it comes to Mar­cel­lus Shale activ­ity.

Local offi­cials con­cerned about the mea­sures filled Green Tree, Allegheny County’s munic­i­pal build­ing tonight, and railed against the two impact fees for more than two hours. More...

The worst thing that could happen is local township/borough people having any say what so ever with drilling!

5:14 you believe in a powerful Big Brother government dictating to our townships what they can or can't do? You are not a very good American. In this country, we reserve the power for the PEOPLE. Maybe you should move.

why is it bad for local communities to have a voice? That's just nutty. The impact is local, and the more local people involved the better the entire process will be. The worst way to manage the process is to have those most removed from the impacted communities making decisions that affect the rest of us, especially foreign investors. They don't care about us or our land.

The local (Potter) municipalities have not tried to zone to regulate the industry anyway.
If local officials were going to try to put zoning in place to protect residential areas,
schools, public water sources they would have started the ball rolling by now.

To 9:06:00 PM "They don't care about us or our land." It seems to me (from the onset) that the local officials don't care either.

They have been willing to allow "us and our land" to be put at risk in exchange for the economic benefits for a few lease holders and industry jobs.

An elected official can be voted out. You may need to remind them of this at the next township meeting.
