Local Officials Slam Impact Fee’s Zoning Restrictions

Date: 12/14/2011

Town­ship and bor­ough man­agers, coun­cil mem­bers and super­vi­sors are push­ing back against Repub­li­can lead­ers who want tolimit 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.
