The public hearing for “The 81 on East Bay” development, scheduled for April 6, 7 p.m., at St. Joseph’s Parish Hall, has been canceled. (See noticed of cancellation on Peninsula Township’s website here.)
Township supervisor Rob Manigold said the cancellation is at the request of the applicant, who’ve stated they need more time to review new information. “We’re honoring their request by giving them a little more time,” says Manigold.
He said the public hearing will likely be re-scheduled within the next 30 days.
In an op-ed we published on March 28, Jim Komendera, president of Preserve Old Mission, noted that an environmental consultant has been hired to evaluate the concerns of soil contamination on the property.
“This has now become a safety issue with the recent findings of what may be in the soil on this land,” says Komendera.
When the public hearing is rescheduled, we’ll keep you updated on the time and place.
