A letter has now been received by Venango Township from MacDonald Illig Attorneys in response to the planning commission’s recommendation to reject the conditional use permit for Wilson Solar.
The letter goes into some detail outlining their disagreement with the planning commission and further states that they believe only the supervisors have jurisdiction in deciding conditional use applications.
Birch Creek does not seem to be concerned that the planning commission recommends rejection of the permit or that the community at large does not want it.
It now lies in the hands of the supervisors. Do the supervisors represent the citizens of Venango Township or Birch Creek Development? The vote on January 8th will answer that question.
