Drainage Easement on Yetter Court Property
Mrs. Trone stated the drainage easement for the Yetter Court property comes from the development of St. John’s Towns. She stated the new development needs permission from this Board to allow more of a concentrated flow of water onto our property. She stated RJ Fisher came before the Board and discussed the plan and based on the input from the meeting they changed their design. She showed the Board the maps and proposed flow of water and where it would be piped. She showed how the water would flow to the property.
Mr. Stoner asked Mr. Eby about any MS4 concerns. Mr. Eby stated he spoke with Mr. Flint who is agreeable to the plan. Mr. Black stated their plan hugged the right-of-way for St. John’s Road. He stated it is piped into the existing inlet system so he is okay with their plan. Mrs. Trone stated it should infiltrate before entering our property. Mr. Stoner stated he thinks this improves the property. Mrs. Trone asked the Board if they were okay with the revised plan.
Mr. Eby stated the Board agreed last month that they would need to acknowledge and accept the proposed change in the water flow characteristics and somehow signify consent to do the construction work for the stormwater changes on the Development Authority’s property. Solicitor Miner asked about the timing of the easement and dedication. Mr. Eby asked about the dedication with the stormwater and the Township. Solicitor Miner stated the Township would want control of the stormwater easement and piping. Mr. Eby spoke about an assignment clause from the Development Authority to Triple Crown which would need to be transferable to the Township. Discussion ensued including the correct wording of the motion.
Mr. EBY made a motion to accept the revised plan from RJ Fisher & Associates, agreeing to grant an easement of a minimum width of 20 feet, securing temporary and permanent easement and transfer/assignment of easement from Triple Crown to Lower Allen Township. Mr. BLACK seconded the motion. Motion carried 5-0.
